The Center for International Education (CIE)
CIE administers NTU Plus Academy through integrating resources at NTU and offers more than 20 topic-based short-term programs for international students, including this NTU SUmmer+ Program. In addition to courses, students experience local customs, rich natural ecology, and gain further insights about traditional and modern society through a series of cultural activities and excursions. CIE collaborates with various units to increase English taught curricula and offers diverse Chinese language courses to enhance international students’ learning. These programs provide you with the fantastic opportunity to increase your intercultural competence and expand your network of international friends and connections. Every year, students from across the world participate in NTU's Summer+ Programs in the heart of Taipei – one of the safest and friendliest cities on earth. Students can immerse themselves in Taiwanese culture through a range of activities and daily interactions with local students. 

NTU's Summer+ Program offers a series of English-based lectures and field trips that allow you to explore specific environmental and sociocultural aspects of Taiwan. Excursions give you a direct understanding of Taiwanese culture while one-day trips are organized outside of Taipei for an in-depth exploration of this diverse nation.
