Message from President

Under the trend of globalization, the degree of internationalization of each individual is an important factor to decide its survival nowadays. As a provider of higher education, we are under no exception. Developing new-century leaders with humane and cultural care, professional knowledge, creativity, and international vision is the educational goal of National Chengchi University.

National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) is an outstanding academy engaged in cultivating great teachers, in Taiwan, who are capable of developing students for the job market. In recent years, NTNU is becoming an international and diversified comprehensive university. In addition to fostering great teachers, there are many new departments that have been set up to adapt to academic development and social transition. NTNU continues to establish these new departments in order to align with the present trend in technology and management fields.

National Central University (NCU) was founded in 1915 in Nanking and was ranked among the best universities in China. NCU was re-established in JhongLi, Taiwan in 1962. Since then it has developed from a graduate institute of Geophysics to full university status with seven colleges and more than thirty departments and graduate programs. In recent years NCU has been able to obtain a significant number of government grants in support of our excellent projects.
