Living Cost

The Taiwan currency is the NTD. The 4 denominations of bills are NTD2,000, NTD 1,000, NTD 500 and NTD 100 while the 6 denominations of coins are NTD 50, NTD 10, NTD 5, and NTD 1. Cash payment is common in Taiwan though many shops do accept credit cards. Checks are not normally used in Taiwan for payment of everyday expenses.In addition to your tuition fees, your accommodation costs will be your biggest financial burden. It's worth doing research before you arrive on your accommodation options, and better to research the cost of things such as utilities (electricity, gas, water, telephone), public transportation, food and so on. The cost of all things may vary depending on the area you'll be living in.
