National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) Location: Taipei, Taiwan
Programs: Semester & Year
Founded in 1946, originally as Taiwan Provincial Teachers College, the school's mission was to train outstanding teachers for secondary education. The name was changed to National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in 1967, but the commitment to quality education and teacher training remained. With the enactment of the Teacher Preparation Law in 1994, NTNU transformed itself by creating many new academic departments and promoting international collaboration with prestigious universities overseas, as well as welcoming international students to enroll in academic programs. NTNU is a diverse, multinational institution and community, with an international student population of nearly 4,000, including those enrolled at the Mandarin Training Center.
Mandarin Training Center (MTC), a subsidiary of National Taiwan Normal University, was founded in the autumn of 1956 for teaching Chinese as a second language. Currently, MTC is the largest and the most renowned Chinese language center, with around 1,700 students from more than 70 countries enrolled each academic quarter (three months.)
