Program Description:
The Program
  • The university was founded in 1928 by the Japanese administration during the Japanese colonial era and was then known as the Taihoku (Taipei) Imperial University. After World War II, the government of the Republic of China resumed the administration of Taihoku University and reorganized and renamed it National Taiwan University on November 15, 1945
  • With 10% of the student body coming from abroad, NTU is an exciting environment in which to pursue your academic interests alongside students, faculty and scholars from over 70 countries
  • Get acquainted to NTU student life through the International Office’s visiting volunteer program
Your Host City: Taipei
Home to approximately 6 million residents, Taipei is the thriving economic, political, and cultural center of Taiwan.  Get your cultural fix by visiting Chiang-Kai Shek Memorial Hall, the National Taiwan Museum, and Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, and then head out and sample the local fare at one of the many night markets or roadside food vendors.  For lovers of the outdoors hike up to the top of Elephant Mountain for an unforgettable view of the city or travel further afield Yangmingshan National Park and climb one of the many peaks. 

In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the National Taiwan University website.  Visiting students also have access to the NTU General Chinese Language course which is offered at several different levels.

You will need to be sure that you are registered as a full time student according to both NTU and Rutgers University.  That means you will need to take at least 12 credits each semester. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail.

For information about Study Abroad credit transfer, registration, and transcripts please visit the Academics section of our website.

Accommodations and Meals
Visiting/Exchange students are normally placed in shared bedrooms in the International Youth Center or the Prince House dorms.  The dormitories are located about a 7 minute walk from campus.  Most buildings have communal lounges and kitchen facilities.  However, with the low cost of meals in Taipei many students choose to take their meals on-campus or in the area.

For more information on housing options, please visit the NTU Visiting Student handbook.
