Exchange Program with Taiwan

YNU Japanese Language and Culture Program

YNU International Student Center

This half-year/one-year program, which started in October 2016, is based on academic exchange agreements with partner universities, Tamkang University and Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages. Students take Japanese language classes and lectures provided through the International Strategy Organization and may transfer the credits earned back to their home universities. The program aims to instill in students a sense of international role and responsibility and foster mutual understanding.
