For the first time in China, the launch of NTU’s signature MiniMasters will allow potential Chinese students to experience a global education geared towards the Chinese market demands, along with an opportunity to experience student life right at NTU’s vibrant campus. Through a hybrid mode of online and physical classes, students will be able to earn the NTU MiniMasters qualification upon completion of the required course hours and academic credits.
