The Office of International Affairs


The Office of International Affairs: Taiwans commerce and industry have long reached around the world, and in recent years, the nations educational system has been expanding its international horizons in new ways. Taiwan is still seen by many countries as a prime source of students seeking an international education, but while thirty years ago this resulted in a brain drain of Taiwans young talent to other countries, the drain has now changed to an exchange, with faculty and students traveling in both directions for research, degree programs, and international experience. Facilitating this exchange has involved Taiwans educational institutions in many changes to remove unnecessary obstacles and provide necessary support.
