1.5 Subjects Taught at NTU

The NTU International Mentorship Program is the first summer internship program tailor-made for international degree-seeking students at National Taiwan University (NTU). The program aims to facilitate the linkage between Taiwan and the global talent market, as well as, to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.

To increase professional global competence and help our students develop international networks, NTU cooperates with overseas enterprises and non-profit organizations, such as IBM Research and The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to create international internship opportunities across sectors for NTU undergraduate and graduate students, enabling them to pursue internship opportunities abroad. This program will promote international exchange, expand participants’ horizons, and prepare them to become professionals with a global mentality.

In collaboration with Impact Hub Taipei, we’ve launched a training program for NTU students interested in sustainability and non-profit work. Focusing on project-based learning, students in this program will work with Taiwan's non-governmental organizations (NGO) focusing on international affairs or international non-governmental organizations (iNGO) as interns. Through all English-curated courses and 16-week internships combining theory with practice, we are intended to empower our students with global networks and problem-solving skills to prepare the future careers with NGOs.

2.1 Degree Programs

As of the academic year 2021-2022, NTU offers over 300 programs, including over 90 double-degree programs, at the bachelor’s, master's, and PhD levels and three professional schools (dentistry, veterinary medicine, and pharmacy). More than 1800 of the classes available are English-taught. Furthermore, NTU offers accessible Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), with 69 courses on Coursera and over 230 courses on NTU’s OpenCourseWare platform.

 Nonetheless, NTU offers local and international students a variety of financial aid options in the form of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate levels. The affordable tuition fees, great professional options, and reduced living costs make studying at National Taiwan University an excellent choice.


2.2 Non-Degree Programs

The university also offers a series of non-degree programs to complement student's learning experience. Of 5,000 incoming international students yearly, many participate in our exchange and visiting student programs. Other great non-degree opportunities for students include:


  1.  NTU Plus Academy 

This program allows students to spend a summer gaining insight into one of the following fields: civil and building engineering, BIM implementation, and the +1N Biotechnology program.

  1. Research Visits Program 

A program designed for oversee students interested in conducting short-term research or internship with an NTU faculty member. 

  1. Chinese language courses 

 These courses are a popular gateway to learning Chinese and experiencing Taiwanese culture; these courses are available for degree and non-degree students.

3.2 Research Highlights

Advancing Modern Medical Sciences – The NTU Cancer Center (NTUCC)

Established in 2019, NTUCC is the first comprehensive public cancer medical center in Taiwan. The center aims to pioneer cutting-edge advances in oncology and innovative clinical treatments, while simultaneously building a framework for personalized preventive medicine.

NTUCC is led by distinguished Professor James Chih-Hsin Yang, MD, PhD, a world-renowned scholar in lung cancer research. Professor Yang has spearheaded multiple international studies that have led to global use of new drugs for patients with advanced lung cancer and renewed guidelines for lung cancer treatment.

Developing Next-generation Electronics– NTU Nano-Electro-Mechanical-System (NEMS) Research Center

The NEMS Research Center is an academic research institution focusing on multidisciplinary topics, including new-generation electronics, biochemical sensors, actuators and transmitters, photonic devices and advanced materials. In the past 15 years, the NEMS center has secured publications in high-impacted journals, such as Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, and Advanced Materials. By providing a prototyping platform to industrial partners, including Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), Himax, Playnitride, Taiwan Nano & Micro-Photonics, the center is dedicated to bridging the gap between industries and academia and collaborating on the development of next-generation electronics.

Protecting Endangered Species – NTU’s Biodiversity Conservation Efforts

In 2000, Chinese Crested Terns were re-discovered after disappearing for 60 years. They were on the brink of extinction. These migratory birds breed in colonies on ocean islands, making them vulnerable to natural disasters and human disturbance. Cross-country protection of breeding and wintering grounds is essential for their survival.

To protect these birds, the NTU conservation team collaborated with scientists to restore their breeding habitats, promote social attraction, conduct satellite tracking, enforce conservation laws, and advocate for protection. After 20 years of collaborative efforts, the Chinese Crested Tern population has increased to 200. From research to implementation, biodiversity conservation remains our top priority.


3.3 Social Responsibility through Innovation

NTU is dedicated to practicing university social responsibility and the United Nation’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), resulting in revamping our curriculum, international collaborations and SDG-focused forums. We also frequently partner with national entities such as Academia Sinica, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control, and more.

Moreover, the strong emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship has paved the way for the development of NTU Future Classroom, which integrates advanced IoT technology to create a dynamic learning environment. By providing courses such as University PLUS and hands-on, interdisciplinary programs, we also reinforce the importance of actively giving back to the community, thus creating a mutually beneficial relationship between NTU and the society.

To achieve the SDGs of 2030, the pressing issues that require ambitious action include:

  • How to motivate research teams to propose interdisciplinary research/action plans and the evaluation/award/promotion/hiring mechanism for the faculty and students participating in such initiatives
  • How to put the concept of “Living Lab” into practice at Asian research universities and accelerate its implementation, along with an external collaborative mechanism
  • How to improve sustainability competence of all NTU members
