Snapshot of the HNC Class of 2015-2016

As the Hopkins-Nanjing Center prepares to welcome its newest class this fall, we wanted to share a profile of the 82 international students who will be attending in 2015-2016.  Please note that while the HNC student body consists of both Chinese and international students, the information below represents the American and other non-U.S. citizens admitted through our Washington-based admissions office. 

Countries Represented:
HNC students are an international group! During the 2015-2016 academic year at the Hopkins-Nanjing Center, there will be students representing Canada, Finland, Ireland, Israel, Jamaica, Panama, Peru, Russia, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In addition to these international students, about half of the student body are citizens of China.

U.S. States Represented:
Our American students also come from a variety of different locations. In 2015-2016, they will represent 30 states, based on their permanent addresses. 

Program Enrollment:
The following chart represents international student enrollment in our three graduate program offerings: the HNC Certificate, the HNC MAIS, and the HNC Certificate/SAIS MA programs.

Chinese Proficiency:
All international students are required to demonstrate Chinese proficiency by taking the STAMP test in order to be admitted to the Hopkins-Nanjing Center. This exam tests their reading and listening comprehension to ensure that they are adequately prepared to pursue graduate coursework in Chinese. As the chart below demonstrates, our students already possess strong language skills, but their studies at the HNC will help raise their language to even higher levels of professional proficiency.

 Welcome to the newest class of HNC students!
