Hello, I’ve been living in Taiwan for a year now studying mandarin, and i would like to go to college next year for undergrad. I was wondering if anyone with some knowledge of National Taiwan Univeristy could help me, as it seems that the internet is somewhat lacking in this topic.
I was wondering specifically about the quality of education in the technology/engineering fields, that is, are the professors here any good at teaching or is it just more of “Taiwanese High School” where they lecture you and give you a new test every day. Does anyone have any insight on how this would compare to college in the US, as I am also considering attending a University there.
Another important factor to me is whether or not staff would be supportive outside of the classroom and encourage extra learning. I’ve heard many teachers here don’t take disagreement very lightly, is this still true of professors in these fields at NTU?
I find that it’s difficult to find good insight into this online, specifically regarding more technology oriented fields at this school. Additionally, my mandarin level at this point is up to par to be able to attend University in Chinese, so I assume that would help me to receive a better education overall. Is this at all accurate?
Any help would be appreciated, if you would like any more clarification, just ask!
