~ International Outlook ~
- Fulfill the Ideal of Internationalization via Asia University 318
Global mobility is one key competence the College has endeavored to foster in our faculty, staff and student body in both teaching and research. We try to educate our students in at least 3 languages: Mandarin Chinese, English and programing language or second foreign language, thereby laying a solid foundation for their global mobility. We encourage and offer financial support to our students for their overseas study and/or internship, hoping they will make good use of our university’s 8 pathways for going abroad to broaden their horizon at least once (1) in their four-year study at Asia University. They are all expected to take off and soar high and far by means of education.
We will take the following initiatives and action plans to further our performances in global outlook:
- To add performances in carrying out MOE’s “Scholarships for Excellent Students to Study Abroad ,” “Pilot Overseas Internships,” and “Hardships for Students to Study Abroad” projects to the required performance indexes of a teacher’s annual assessment.
- To make use of the exchange student program or the (2+2) dual degree program of our overseas partner universities to help recruit international students.
- To offer language and culture courses in relation to ASEAN nations, such as Bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese language, to our students who are interested in the region.
- To concentrate on Changi International Airport, Singapore, student internship and the like as our strength and featured program, and to increase the opportunities of internship in the region for our students.
- To organize the second generation of our immigrants from ASEAN nations as volunteers, help them go back to their mothers’ homeland to revitalize the relationship between Taiwan and ASEAN as a way to help further the government’s “New Southbound Policy.”
