1. Second Mentor Project
The Second Mentor Project is a project created by the Office of International Affairs with the help and support of the NTU faculty members. We aim to assist overseas degree students (iincluding internatinoal /overseas Chinese/Mainland Chinese students ) during the process of adaptation to their life at NTU and in Taiwan.
Who is the Second Mentor
Your Second Mentor will be the one who will help you simplify some obstacles in the process of settling in. It can be someone who shares your language and culture, someone with common interests and hobbies, or just someone who already knows the struggles of being "international" at NTU. We hope you can find a friend among our faculty members. Someone you can reach to when having a hard day, needing a piece of advice, or just feeling like sharing some great news.
By joining the project you will be able to:
- Meet other international students from different departments.
- Learn about unwritten rules of everyday life at NTU and in Taiwan from experienced faculty members.
- Gain support for academic pursuits and personal development.
All interested current overseas degree students (iincluding internatinoal /overseas Chinese/Mainland Chinese students ) are welcome to join the project. However, please note that it is on a first come first served basis. If you are not able to allocate for this semester, you will have the priority for the next semester.

2. Taiwan Hostfamily Program
The Taiwan Hostfamily Program aims to provide an environment for overseas students so they can "Know Taiwan, Experience Taiwan", by having students stay with host families in Taiwan. This will have a positive effect on the language learning and cultural experience of overseas students in Taiwan, while also promoting understanding of Taiwan internationally. An atmosphere of multiculturalism can be formed as a result of bringing Taiwan host families and overseas students together.
For more information, please refer to Taiwan Hostfamily Program website.
