Hello dear Forumosers,
Question for you. I was accepted into an MA in economics and the scholarship program of the Taiwanese Ministry of Education, with school due to start this September. However, while I really like Taiwan, I’m a bit reluctant pursuing the degree - and of course I should make a decision ASAP.
So, a few questions:
As my BA is not a technological profession (I hold a LL.B. - bachelor of Law, and don’t hold a Common Law license), how helpful/necessary is the Taiwanese MA in order for me to get a respectable position here (at least 50-60k a month, international work experience)?
I can work part-time during my studies (up to 20 hours a week). From your experience - is it realistic to get good part-time positions here (mostly in terms of experience - int’l trade related), or will I have to resort (sorry) to stuff like English teaching?
If anyone here did an M.A here (in Chengchi University in Taipei) - how is the level of teaching and the general experience? At 32 - would it be worth it to stop everything for 1.5/2 years, or should I just look for a job and that’s it?
Thnx a lot!
