There are also a good number of domestic students at the minhang campus, especially students who are pursuing graduate studies. Foreign students, particularly those from Western countries, have also contributed to the increasing numbers of foreign students enrolling at the minhang campus.

Shanghai Jiao Tong University also has a number of departments dealing with medicine, law, education, engineering, childcare, business, economics, and food preparation and hospitality.

Another important feature of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University is the presence of an international student association. This is one organization that brings together all the different components of the university into one. This association was established in 2021 as the Shanghai Chinese University Students’ Association. In recent years, the association has been able to attract many foreign students to come to China to pursue their educational dreams. At present, there are more than 2021 international students staying at the university.
