1911

Description

Originally established in 1911 in the Chinese capital of Beijing, National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) relocated to Hsinchu City in Taiwan in 1956 following the defeat of the Kuomintang-led government against the Communist Party in the Chinese Civil War.

NTHU today offers a wide range of programmes in science, technology, engineering, humanities, social sciences and management. It comprises seven colleges, 17 departments and 22 independent graduate institutes.

To be enrolled on NTHU’s undergraduate programmes, most students need to pass the Joint College Entrance Exam in order to qualify. Others may be admitted through various programmes or schemes, and international students are selected by the Ministry of Education. Foreign students with a high school diploma may apply for baccalaureate programmes through the Office of Global Affairs.

At master’s level, students with an undergraduate or baccalaureate degree are still required to pass an entrance exam. Outstanding students may be directly admitted through a special and competitive selection process. The same is true for those wishing to study for a doctoral degree. There are currently 31 doctoral degree programmes on offer at NTHU.

There are 150 student-run clubs at the university across a number of areas. These include Student Associations, Crafts and Skills, Music and Entertainment, Service, Art, Sport, General, and Functional Teams. Excellent facilities include a gym, swimming pool, ball courts, and track and field. Every year since 1969, the university takes part in the Meichu Games which sees students compete with their neighbouring rival, the National Chiao Tung University.

On campus, there are 21 dormitories with a maximum capacity for 6,000 students. Many of the university’s 600 faculty members also live on campus providing an integrated community in which students and staff can interact with each other outside of the lecture theatre.
