1. Taiwan Hostfamily Program

If you, as an international student, would like to have an inside view of what life in Taiwan is, at the same time getting to know more about the politics, history, economy and other aspects of Taiwan's society, then you should certainly consider participating in the activities organized by 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.

2. Second Mentor Project

The 2nd 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 international students during the process of adaptation to their life at NTU and in Taiwan. 

Who is the 2nd Mentor

Your 2nd 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:

  1. Meet other international students from different departments. 
  2. Learn about unwritten rules of everyday life at NTU and in Taiwan from experienced faculty members. 
  3. Gain support for academic pursuits and personal development. 


All interested international degree students are welcomed to join the project. 


If you are interested please fill in the online survey. We will match you with the 2nd mentor. The 2nd Mentor Project will serve as an extra support to the current mentor system.  


If you have any questions about the project, feel free to contact the project coordinator.
