Words from International Students
Why students choose to study in Shanghai University
Reasons from SEO *** Won

I studied IGCSE and IB in Shanghai and had many friends from Shanghai University. Therefore, I had chances to visit the University several times. I really like the Metropolitan look of the University and the environment there. Also, I heard many good things about the Univ. from my friends. Another reason is the recommendation from my father. My father worked for an international company called POSCO in the mainland and some of his co-workers were from the Shanghai University. I would love to study at the Shanghai University because of the positive comments from my friends and my father. In addition, since I lived in Shanghai for around 8 years, I am very familiar with the transportation, language, and environment of Shanghai.
