The JGS & Its Parent Universities

Southeast University-Monash University Joint Graduate School Suzhou (JGS), approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education in 2012 (approval number: MOE32AUA02DNR20121197N), is now the 1st and only Sino-foreign cooperative institution in China to offer world-competitive English instructed graduate programs. The students who complete the two-year double master’s programs receive degrees from both Southeast University and Monash University.

Both Southeast University (SEU) and Monash University (Monash) are recognised as among the leading universities in China and Australia with a national and international reputation for research and teaching excellence (Monash ranked consistently among the top 100 universities in the world).

The JGS is complemented by a Joint Research Institute (JRI) established to conduct multi-disciplinary research projects. The emphasis will be on areas of strategic importance to today’s industry, including nanotechnology, bioinformatics, water, energy and light metals that reflect the two universities’ world-recognized strengths in engineering, health and science.

With more than 500 students enrolled in 2015, it’s anticipated that a broad range of master’s (up to 12) programs in disciplines from economics to engineering will be offered in the JGS as the partnership between the two universities evolves and strengthens.

Recent survey shows a high job satisfaction of the 1st and 2nd cohorts of about 100 graduates. 91% of them feel “better than expected” about their first job or further education settlement.


Backed by well-developed infrastructure, community services and beautiful surroundings, a 43,000-square-metre building that houses the JGS and JRI has cutting-edge facilities in Dushuhu Higher Education and Innovation Zone, Suzhou Industrial Park.

The Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) – is one of the largest innovation precincts in China and recognized as one of the world's most dynamic places for turning clever research into valuable industrial processes and products. It's a hub of 21st century brainpower for more than 100 Fortune 500 companies and 15 international universities and research institutes. And all just half an hour by high speed train from Shanghai.
