Suggested Universities and Schools


Taiwan has a great number of colleges and universities, both public and private, relative to its population. Several offer content courses (social and behavioral sciences, etc.) in English and many have affiliated Chinese language study programs. As in the USA, international students are highly attractive to universities in Taiwan, so schools that offer relevant courses have offices to recruit and support them. You should contact these offices to arrange for study in Taiwan. In addition to university-affiliated language programs, several private companies offer language classes, although in most cases you will have a more interesting experience if you attend a university.

Some universities known to offer attractive content or language courses are introduced on this page.
