Our students from the Department of Chinese, Department of English and the Department of Taiwan Culture, Languages and Literature went to UCLA and those from the states are from Asian Language studies, Art History, History and Drama. At the reception, scholarship recipients talked about their experience studying in America and their plans in Taiwan as well as the academic resources they can get from the university. The students will stay in Taiwan for 1.5 to 6 months. The visiting students will be invited to workshops or seminars for further communication between local and international students.
