PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Taiwan: National Taiwan University program is affiliated with National Taiwan University (NTU), one of the top-ranked universities in Asia. CSU IP students are admitted to NTU as exchange students and take a combination of Chinese language courses and NTU courses taught in Chinese and/or English.

TaiwanAll students are required to take a Mandarin Chinese language course each semester. Students with less than one year or no previous study of college-level Mandarin Chinese can take courses taught in English in their academic major at NTU, as well as taking NTU General Chinese courses taught through the Department of Chinese Literature. NTU offers Applied Chinese courses designed specifically to meet the needs of non-native speakers to acquire Chinese language skills. Some of the English courses available at NTU include coursework in Asian/Taiwan studies, economics, political science, literature, business, environmental science, and engineering.

Students with near-native fluency in Mandarin Chinese take regular university courses in Chinese and courses in English.  Students also take NTU General Chinese and Applied Chinese courses. For more information about the academic program, students may refer to the CSU IP Academic Bulletin for the previous year. Note that course offerings are subject to change and may not be offered during the year of intended study.


LOCATION

The Taiwan: National Taiwan University program is located in Taipei, which is the capital city of Taiwan. Taipei is the political, economic, educational, and cultural center of Taiwan. Considered to be a global city, Taipei is part of a major high-tech industrial area. The National University of Taiwan’s main campus is centrally located in Taipei’s Da’an district. 


HOUSING

NTU arranges on-campus dormitories for CSU IP students. Students register online with NTU for housing; instructions are provided with the NTU university application. Students who prefer to live off-campus are advised to arrive prior to the start of classes (1 to 2 weeks is recommended) to find a place to live. Please be advised that the Office of International Affairs at NTU does not provide assistance in locating off-campus housing options.  



ADDITIONAL PROGRAM NOTES:

Please note: Applicants must complete and submit two applications for this program, the CSUF online application and the CSU IP online application. *Note: The CSU IP application will require an official transcript for the host university, and it must be a hard copy sent to CSU IP.

Applicants must have completed at least two semesters at CSUF at the time of application. 

According to CSU IP Academic Bulletin for National Taiwan University (NTU) in Taipei.

CSU IP students take a combination of Chinese language courses and NTU courses taught either in Chinese and/or English. \

Students who wish to focus their studies on Mandarin Chinese take Chinese Tutorial Courses taught by the International Chinese Language Program (ICLP) which is widely held to be the premier language institution for the instruction of both modern and classical Chinese in Taiwan. Students must have intermediate language proficiency in Mandarin in order to be admitted to the ICLP program.

Students with less than one year or no previous study of college-level Mandarin Chinese take courses taught in English in their academic major at NTU as well as take NTU General Chinese Courses each semester. In addition, NTU offers Applied Chinese courses designed specifically to meet the needs of non-native speakers to acquire Chinese language skills. Please refer to section entitled NTU General Chinese Courses and NTU Applied Chinese Courses.

CSU IP students follow one of three study programs:

1. Learn Chinese: Students take three Chinese Tutorial Courses (ICLP) and one NTU course.

2. Study in English: Students are required to take NTU General Chinese Course each term. In addition to General Chinese, students can take Applied Chinese Courses designed for international students. Remaining courses are selected from NTU’s list of regular university courses taught in English.

3. Direct Enrollment: Near-native Chinese language speakers take regular university courses in Chinese and courses in English. Students have the option of taking either NTU General Chinese and Applied Chinese Courses or Chinese Tutorial Courses (ICLP). Students who do not have strong Chinese reading and writing skills are strongly encouraged to take Chinese Tutorial Courses (ICLP) in their first semester of study.

Regardless of which program students choose, all students are required to take a minimum of 15 units each semester. All Physical Education courses are 1 CSU unit. Students are limited to enroll in one Physical Education course per semester.
