Taiwan is a popular destination for international students.
Taiwan’s bustling cities, along with its breathtaking tropical forests, green and marble mountains, hidden gorges and enormous sea cliffs can also make it seem like a paradise for students.
Many of the region’s universities rank in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022, and are successful across a range of academic fields, including engineering, management and medicine.
The capital city of Taipei has a lot to offer culturally, too. Its temples are used not only for prayer but also to host cultural festivals and art-house events.
Highlights of Taiwanese cuisine include steamed dumplings, shrimp rolls and a shaved ice dessert, all accompanied by fresh juices and local teas and beers. International students can get the full culinary experience at the regular night markets.
