About JXAU


Known for  its biological technology and agricultural science programs, Jiangxi  Agricultural University (JXAU) is a multi-disciplinary university. It is one of  the first school in China to be accredited for both Bachelor and Master degrees,  and is the first school to offer post-graduate education in Jiangxi. The  University was co-built by the People’s Government of Jiangxi Province, the  Ministry of Agriculture and the State Forestry Administration, and is supported  by the National Basic Ability Construction Project of Central and Western   China. JXAU is located ideally in the Nanchang Economic & Technological  Development Zone with a campus area of 10.7km2 (4.1mi2).  The garden-esque campus is set against beautiful scenery and has a peaceful  atmosphere.


JXAU has  a proud history that can be traced back to the Jiangxi Industrial School  established in 1905, and was renamed in 1908 as the Higher Agricultural  Institute. After years of development, undergraduate education began officially  at National  Zhongzheng University in 1940. The school was renamed again in 1949  as Nanchang University. Jiangxi Agricultural College was founded in 1952,  encompassing Nanchang University, and in 1969 joined with Jiangxi Communist  Labor General University, which was founded in 1958. Finally, in November 1980,  the school was renamed Jiangxi Agricultural  University.
