Fair Provides Firsthand Information about Overseas Student Life

The Office of International Affairs put on the 2015/2016 NTU Study Abroad Fair on November 15, the same day as the 86th NTU Anniversary Celebration, making it one of the many fun and informative events organized to mark the university's birthday during the month of November.

As in previous years, the OIA organized the Study Abroad Fair into three parts: two sessions explaining the university's exchange student programs and summer programs, respectively, and a third part that featured a festive exhibition of booths set up by the students and representatives of NTU's international partner universities.

The exchange student program and summer program sessions proved to be the fair's most popular attractions. Both sessions drew lively audiences of curious students who were eager to learn about the exciting options for overseas studies to be taken advantage of while at NTU.

Each year, partner university booths serve as a valuable source for obtaining firsthand information about life as an overseas student. The OIA invites NTU students who have studied abroad, as well as exchange students currently studying at NTU, to set up booths representing their overseas universities. The booths facilitate interaction among NTU's international and local students, while giving those who have previously enrolled in the program a chance to pass on and share their overseas experiences after returning to Taiwan. Official representatives from our partner universities also visit Taiwan to set up information booths during the fair.

In order to boost student interest, the OIA holds a "best booth" contest as well as a prize-drawing activity for students who complete satisfaction questionnaires.

Online registration for NTU students hoping to take part in NTU's exchange student programs opened on November 21.
