Academic Information

Office of International Affairs

Lastest release date: Feb 08, 2017

Office of International Affairs (OIA) was established on August 1, 2012 and is currently composed of the following three divisions: International Academic Cooperation and Exchange Division (ICE), International Recruitment and Admissions Division (IRA), and International Scholar and Student Affairs Division (ISSA). The Office is responsible for the promotion of international services of the university. Through coordinated efforts of the respective divisions, we are able to provide high efficiency and a friendly environment with the goal of creating a superior learning environment.


To enhance the international competitiveness and prestige of the research and instruction of NDHU and mitigate the impact of low birth rates, the university aims to fully utilize all educational resources and enhance the internationalization of NDHU by expanding the recruitment of overseas students. The university therefore began to establish international academic programs which serve the purpose of attracting international students in 2010. The university currently offers 4 international Bachelor programs, 11 international Master’s programs, and 22 international PhD programs.

The implementation of services since August 2012 and future vision of the Office of International Affairs is explained below:

※International Academic Cooperation and Exchange Division (ICE):

To broaden the international outlook and research scope of our students and faculty, the office actively promotes international academic exchanges, coordinates and arranges contracts, exchanges, and strategic alliances with foreign academic institutions, and cooperates with prestigious foreign universities and academic research units in the promotion of international academic cooperation projects. The Office also arranges mutual visits by academic personnel and short-term study and exchange programs. In addition, the Office also focuses on important tasks such as the promotion of all-English degree programs which are subsidized by the Ministry of Education as well as the Taiwan Tech Trek Program sponsored by the National Science Council and summer exchange programs.

※International Recruitment and Admissions Division (IRA)

As far as promotional activities are concerned, the university concludes MOUs with numerous academic institutions, organizes mutual visits and promotes research cooperation and student exchanges. The university also actively accelerates the pace of internationalization and seeks more international exposure. With regard to recruitment activities, the university organizes more international visits and student recruitment drives in key regions such as Mongolia, India, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, and Macao. We strive to gain a deeper understanding of the differences between students from different areas as well as their diverse needs. Based on a better understanding of individual differences we will increase our recruitment quotas and enhance our ability to attract outstanding foreign students as well as stimulate their willingness to conduct research and study at NDHU. We also aim to promote intensive exchanges with other countries in the fields of culture, academics, and instruction.
