Taipei, Dec. 20 (CNA) With international students accounting for 11.44 percent of its graduate student pool, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) is hoping to attract more foreign students, especially those from Southeast Asia and Africa, according to the university’s president.
Liao Ching-jong (廖慶榮) said Dec.16 that considering the impact of the declining birth rate in recent decades on university enrollment, NTUST has been aiming at recruiting international graduate students and currently has 469 enrolled from abroad.
Nearly 30 percent of the courses offered by the university are taught in English, with some departments providing more than 60 percent of them in English, Liao said.
The top source of international students is Indonesia, followed by Vietnam and Ethiopia, Liao added. [FULL STORY]
