[quote=“wangdoodle”]It’s a pseudo university located around the back of the train station.
I say pseudo bocause as a student you pay your money, go to class and get a degree which is useless for getting any official job. It’s not recognized by the government. It will however allow the student to study abroad for a MA / MSc at certain institutions.
I taught there for a couple of weeks several years ago. If you want to teach there, you’ll be left on your own to do what you want.
It’s cash in hand and don’t expect any high degree of professionalism. The office will up the grades if the students ask.[/quote]
That sounds like ITI (International Trade Institute) in Xinzhu. Basically a degree factory. One day, near the end of term I was calculating grades when the head teacher came by and casually reminded me that no one was to get anything less than an ‘A’.
The sad thing is that as far as I know, ITI is respected somewhat, at least by unwitting Taiwanese students who can’t afford to go overseas to do a real MBA.
