Studying in Taiwan can help international students to experience an incredulous higher education that exceeds the traditional studies they may come across normally. What this means is that students will be able to take Mandarin classes, pacific oceanography courses that actually involve work studies that involve going to part-take at projects that involve the Pacific Ocean.
As always, students should look at what the native language is of the country they intend to study in. Along with what the tuition cost can start out as and end up as from undergraduate to postgraduate status. We will even discuss what the normal monthly rent may be.

Cost of Student Living
There are a few buget ideas that students should keep in mind. A budget for eating at the college campus cafeteria, along with if the student pays for accommodation while living in a campus or outside of a campus area.
Without including tuition cost, a month-to-month rough idea would be anywhere from 670 – 900 EUR per month. This includes rent, utilities, groceries, and daily necessities and needs that a student may need every month. The amount listed is to show what students would need to live quite comfortably.
What can students expect when it comes to college tuition in Taiwan? International students can expect to pay per academic year around $800 – $16,000 USD.
With postgraduate studies being on the higher end of the tuition scale, it comes as no shock that research universities that focus on economics, politics, and science would be more costly. Now when a student is going for an undergraduate degree or even a liberal arts degree, a student can expect to pay around $880 USD for a single academic year. Which is incredibly impressive when it comes to tuition savings. Luckily, all international students will be able to see academic program prices before signing up for that course.
What Languages are Spoken in Taiwan
What is the official language in Taiwan? Mandarin Chinese is the main and most widely used language throughout the Taiwan region. Other languages spoken throughout the country include Taiwanese Mandarin, Taiwanese Hokkien (Kinmen dialect), Taiwanese Hakka, Formosan languages, Matsu dialect, Wuqiu dialect, Malayo-Polynesian, Dutch, Spanish, and English.
We do highly advise that any students interested in studying in Taiwan, that they should definitely learn Mandarin and especially both Taiwanese and Chinese Mandarin. Learning a native country’s language definitely helps new international students with navigating their new temporary home and study region.
