Shanghai New York University (NYU Shanghai) has admitted more than 1,500 students from 68 countries, it announced Monday, a day after its fifth anniversary.

The university has enrolled 300 students annually from 2013 to 2016 and raised the number to 350 this year, with foreign students accounting for nearly 47 percent of the total.

It has 260 professors and researchers from more than 30 countries and regions.

The school held its first graduation ceremony in May.

A total of 264 graduates from China, the United States and 31 other countries earned their NYU bachelor's degrees as well as their NYU Shanghai diplomas.

Tyler Rhorick obtained China's first work permit granted to an overseas graduate on completion of a bachelor's degree. In the past, a foreign graduate required either two years of work experience abroad or a master's degree or doctorate to receive the permit.

Some graduates have started their own businesses in Shanghai Free Trade Zone.

NYU Shanghai was established as China's first Sino-American university operating as an independent legal entity. It is jointly run by New York University and East China Normal University.

Following the founding of NYU Shanghai, more China-U.S. universities, such as Duke Kunshan University and Wenzhou Kean University, were set up in China.
