Location & Culture

Click to Open

Taipei’s temptations include the modern – like Taipei 101, one of the world’s tallest buildings – and the ancient – like Bao’an Temple and jade treasures at the National Palace Museum. Though not a top stop for tourists, Taipei is the vibrant political, economic, and cultural center of Taiwan, officially the Republic of China. Night markets brim with a kaleidoscope of tastes, and hot springs create an escape from the bustle. The city is also known for its music, film, and television, which reverberate throughout East Asia.

The Culture

EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

  • Try on the local culture by joining into birthday celebration rituals for Confucius(fall), or the one-week Crazy Mazu festival in the spring.
  • Explore city treasures like the Palace Museum, where the vast Chinese art collection stretches back dynasty over dynasty.
  • Visit tea plantations, porcelain workshops, and temples.
  • Take a three-day excursion to Sun Moon Lake, Tarago Gorge, or Tainan to connect with local community members and see life outside Taipei.
  • Meet with many locals and expatriates, including journalists, diplomats, business leaders and educators, to get feel for working life here.
  • Jump into university life by joining a student club or sports team.

PROJECTS

  • Volunteering. Taiwanese culture supports a unique bounty of nonprofit and non-governmental organizations. Organizations support an array of causes – education, cultural improvement, marginalized people and immigrants, better housing, gender equality, and more. We’ll help you find a match!
  • Internships. Learn with hands-on work in a professional setting, at a range of Taiwanese and international enterprises.
  • Target Language Meals. Gather with language teachers, local students, and CIEE staff members to practice your Chinese skills in a relaxed setting.
  • Peer support. Connect with Cultural Ambassadors, Taipei university students that share tips on language and culture – and often become long-lasting friends.

Daily Life

  • HOUSING

    Campus Dorms: Men and women’s dorms are on the NCCU campus, about a 5 minute walk from CIEE Taipei. Dorms include 24-hour security and laundry facilities, with bathrooms and study lounges on each floor. Internet access provided. 

    Academic Year Student Housing: Housing between fall and spring semesters is not covered by the fee, and students must find and pay for accommodations during this break. CIEE staff can help identify options.

  • MEALS

    Homestays: Students may be offered up to two meals a day, but should budget for all meals as this is dependent upon your individual host family.

    Campus Dorms: Students are responsible for meals. There are options on campus, and in the neighborhood.

What People are Saying

  • "I would recommend the Taiwan program because of the great support they gave me along with the easy to understand application process. My time abroad was the best because of the great support group I found in the Taiwan CIEE office, from the ambassadors to the Chinese teachers to the staff, I have found a friend in every single one of the people in the office and it has made all the difference."

    Tiffany, Santa Clara University,Fall 16
  • "Getting acclimated to the city and culture of Taipei, and feeling genuinely comfortable. Singing karaoke with my ambassador friends, going to mao kong for tea with my Chinese class, experiencing the mazu pilgrimage firsthand. These are only a few of the experiences. I loved them all though."

    Adam, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Spring 17

The program details

Established in 1993, CIEE Taipei provides students with the unique opportunity to learn Mandarin Chinese using traditional characters and the latest teaching methods. This program supports students who want to take content courses in Chinese or English with Taiwanese undergraduate and graduate students.

Students directly enroll at the host university and select from more than 40 content courses taught in English from six colleges and 14 departments. Some graduate courses are also open to CIEE students. Students with superior Chinese language skills can also select from hundreds of courses taught in Chinese across nine colleges and 29 departments. 

Students can also take advantage of incredible facilities and a comprehensive curriculum at NCCU College of Communication where they can study advertising theories, digital media creation, modern art appreciation, or public relations. Darkrooms and a digital reporting and editing lab are accessible for news photography and editing. Students can explore broadcast journalism in the radio and TV production center, or get creative in the computer animation studio.

Established in 1927, National Chengchi University (NCCU) is one of Taiwan’s top educational institutions, renowned for its social sciences and liberal arts colleges. Its business school is highly ranked and accredited by both AACSB and EQUIS and is one of the best in Asia. NCCU hosts 9,000 undergraduates and is located just eight miles from Taipei. The green riverside campus sits at the foot of a mountain and the neighborhood caters to university students, with many restaurants and cafés.

Chinese language courses are taught by teaching professionals from the Chinese Language Center at NCCU, in coordination with the CIEE Taipei director, who served as an adjunct faculty member and graduate student advisor at the Center. English language electives are taught by faculty from National Chengchi University.
