This fee is charged per semester; for students enrolling for their first semester, the fee is paid by wire transfer to confirm the acceptance to the offer of admission. The payment deadline is Registration Day. The Tuition Fee (international-degree-student rate) is collected by the University to make NTU's high-quality education accessible to visiting students. This fee is charged per semester and is paid in cash to the University Cashier, a convenience store or a post office by the Registration Day. An additional TWD 400 NTU Wireless Network will be applied to the tuition bill.
You can find your beneficiary's account details on the 'Payment' section of the Online Application System. Please note that each applicant is assigned a unique beneficiary's account, and that you must only wire your payment to your own designated account.
 
Please note that international remittance transaction doubles exchange rate difference, and you will be charged twice by the bank. In addition, as there may be fees associated with the transfer of foreign currencies, please add accordingly to your payment to cover these fees.
 
We accept wire transfer payments in foreign currencies equivalent or approximate to the amount of New Taiwan Dollar (TWD). Please consult your bank to determine the transfer amount as exchange rate may vary.

Finances

All visiting students must document their ability to meet all educational and living expenses at NTU, as the University does not offer financial supports to visiting students. If you will be attending NTU on a scholarship, you may provide relevant documents as a proof of financial statement.
