The Ministry of Education yesterday said that it plans to budget more than NT$200 million (US$6.4 million) this year to subsidize “customized” courses offered by vocational institutions to students from India and Southeast Asian countries, in an effort to promote the government’s “new southbound policy.”

The ministry cited schools that have been promoting exchanges with institutions in the regions over the past few years, calling on vocational colleges that are designing courses aimed at bringing their recruitment programs in line with the policy to model their programs after such examples.

Among the institutions cited by the ministry was Wufeng University, which has been offering mechanical engineering courses to Indian students.

Wufeng University president Su Ming-hung (蘇銘宏) said it teamed up with Far Eastern Machinery Co in 2013 to offer a program that accommodates the company’s needs.    [FULL  STORY]
