With the remarkable progress of internationalization, NCUE has extended its partner network to more areas around the world. Its partner universities cover 16 countries, including the United States, Germany, the UK, France, Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and China. Around ten quality non-Chinese new partner universities and prospective partners are added this year, all of which reserve exchange quota for NCUE students. Thailand, Russia and Spain, in which a new partner or partner-to-be is located respectively, are the countries that NCUE develops a partnership with for the very first time.

NCUE President Yen-Kuang Kuo, who led a delegation to attend 2017 Taiwan Higher Education Exhibition held in Kuala Lumpur and Yong Ping of Malaysia, returned to Taiwan in mid-July. At the event, many Malaysian students were interested in NCUE because of its good academic reputation, close academic relationship with Malaysia and scholarships offered for Malaysian students. President Kuo also visited NCUE’s partner universities including Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, Malaysia Sarawak University and Han Chiang College, and independent high schools, hoping to deepen the relationship with “New Southern-bound Policy” countries and extend the opportunities of international exchange for NCUE faculty and students.

NCUE made a breakthrough in the academic exchange with Eastern Europe! Dr. Dimiter Velev, Professor of the Department Information Technologies and Communication at the University of National and World Economy (UNWE), Bulgaria, visited NCUE with his wife in the hope of establishing a cooperative mechanism between two universities. UNWE is an elite university whose graduates have been prominent scientists, state figures, and four Prime Ministers. It is expected that his visit would facilitate the development of the relationships between NCUE and the countries of Eastern Europe.
