NTNU and Yonsei University Sign Dual Degree Program
NTNU and Yonsei University became sister schools last year. This year, the freshly signed dual degree program allows the two schools, on an annual basis, to accept maximum two MA students and two PhD students from the other school. In the signing of the agreement, Yonsei University was represented by President Jeong, Hyun-chul Kim, the dean of Yonsei University Language Research Institute of Education, Sunmee Choi, the deputy director of Office of International Affairs and Young-sook Kim, the director of the Department of Futuristic Strategies. NTNU, on the other hand, was represented by President Chang, Vice President Cheng-chih Wu, Kuo-chuan Chen, the dean of College of Liberal Arts, Frank Ying, the dean of Office of International Affairs, Director Tsung-hsien Chung from the Department of Chinese and Division Director I-ping Liang from Office of International Affairs.
President Chang said that South Korea’s heavy international involvement and rapid development in recent years serve as a good example for Taiwan. NTNU has long recognized that we need to cultivate students’ global vision as one of our important missions. We hope to increase students’ international involvement. Currently, more than 6,000 international students are studying at NTNU, and this is a very good start. However, more work needs to be done in sending our students to world-renowned schools abroad.
