Short-term programs

NTU Plus Academy program is an extraordinary combination of professional learning and cultural experience that brought students up close to the kaleidoscopic facets of Taiwanese arts and history. The program offered courses covering Chinese language, research and lab courses, arts and culture, business management, technology, and engineering, and natural and social sciences.

Through the program, the students got more than just a superficial taste of Taiwan’s colorful folk customs, ecological makeup, dietary philosophy, historic substance, and cultural capstones – becoming international storytellers of the“ places and faces of Taiwan.
