WHY TAIWAN'S EDUCATION ?
Universities in Taiwan have been developing in the direction of diversification and globalization, providing students with as many as 18 disciplines including science, art, architecture and humanities.
Although Chinese is Taiwan’s national language, English is actually Taiwan’s primary foreign language, schools at all levels also compulsory students learning English courses. In addition, some schools have free choice of language courses for after-school classes, such as Hakka, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Malay, etc.
Compared with some Western countries, the cost of studying in Taiwan is lower, so you don't have to worry about excessive living expenses and tuition. Many schools also offer students to apply for grants and scholarships.
