COVID-19 Strategies

Given the uncertain circumstances of the pandemic, NCCU ISS endeavors to provide international students with extraordinary academic and cross-cultural experiences in the belief that learning should not be confined by geographical boundaries or hurdled by pandemic-related obstructions. The 2021 NCCU ISS program will come with virtual components, provided along with Mandarin classes and English-taught courses. The contents of the courses will be accessible in either the form of a traditional live class or that of pre-recorded materials, which altogether offers more options of participation for applicants in different time zones around the globe. More details will be confirmed and updated in March, 2021.
