Study abroad Program

What is study abroad program?

Learning languages in native countries

Study abroad program is one of the academic efforts of The School of Liberal Arts to send our students to study in a native country. The main reason is that when the students have attended the class, they should be able to communicate in foreign languages before going abroad. To be a study abroad student will provide priceless opportunities to experience international environment and diverse cultures. This will also encourage the students to improve their foreign language skills to be like native speakers. Apart from this, exploring the world will benefit the students in terms of shaping their perspectives and personality to be up-to-date in a rapidly changing world.

Procedures

The School of Liberal Arts has sent the students to study languages in leading educational institutions in foreign countries where we have mutual academic collaborations. By integrating the teaching and learning arrangement, language study results from host institutions can count towards the school’s foreign language courses. For example, the Chinese Program has been sending the students to study in the Republic of China.

Program fees

The School has established mutual collaborations with international institutions, which both parties have an agreement for the study abroad program fees including collecting additional fees for a mutual fund in studying at the host universities.

Co-curricular with partner universities

The Chinese Program has planned to arrange a study abroad program in the native country by sending the current students to learn language and culture in a selected country for 1-3 academic semesters. Ample experiences of studying and staying in the foreign country are improving language skills, being confident in communication, and developing knowledge in politics, society, and culture of their selected country. More importantly, studying abroad will positively shape the students’ behaviors to be enthusiastic, outstanding, and responsible, which will become competitive advantages for their future career paths.
