CET Taiwan

Taipei, Taiwan

Taiwan is many things at once: It is a major world economy, a key player in the world’s high-tech industry, a little league baseball powerhouse, and a thriving democracy where economic, political, and journalistic freedoms are sacred. Taiwan is distinctly Taiwanese, but at the same time obviously Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian. It is an island, but it is also home to some of the most formidable mountains in Asia. Its tea is world-famous, but small independently-owned coffee shops are ubiquitous. It is a paradise to nature lovers, cyclists, surfers, foodies, environmentalists, birders, music lovers, and philosophers, and activists everywhere.

National Taiwan University

The program is centrally located at Taiwan’s top university, National Taiwan University. The large, beautiful campus has a vibrant international feel thanks to the many students and scholars who come from all over the world to study there.

The CET office is conveniently located on the main NTU campus. Meet with staff or hang out in the student lounge. Use the small ICLP library to brush up on grammar, or head off to the nearby main library. If all that studying has made you hungry, go for a bite to eat at one of the many cafes and restaurants just outside of the campus gates.

Housing & Meals

Your apartment is fully-furnished, in central Taipei, and located no more than ten minutes from a metro station.

Cook at home, or check out the noodles or biandang (bento boxes) near campus.
