Q2. Can I take double majors at NUK?  (讀高雄大學可以雙主修嗎?)

Here we offer the response from the Division of Academic Affairs for your reference. The application for double majors will open in the first week of school starts. However, the qualification to apply for double majors or minor subjects is when you are sophomore. Here I attached two documents that I downloaded from Registration Section  http://daa.nuk.edu.tw/p/412-1005-3092.php?Lang=zh-tw

It's in Chinese though. The applicant can only apply for one department as a double major, but can send another application for minor at the same time. Maybe you can also consider send both, one for a double, and one for a minor and see which one has a good result.

 

Q3. Can NUK offer me more scholarship information?(可以提供我多一點獎學金的資訊嗎?)

For your information, here I would like to offer you some resources for applying for scholarship in Taiwan if you need more financial aid, you can apply for:

1. The Kaohsiung City Government's International Students Scholarship can be applied for in the second semester after admission since it needs you to submit the transcript as a proof that your average grade of the first semester is over 80. For details, please go to http://www.imba.nuk.edu.tw/files/15-1000-418,c91-1.php. 

2.   MOE Taiwan offers Taiwan scholarships for foreign students coming to Taiwan to learn Chinese or for admission. 

3. Taiwan Abroad Office offers a MOFA Taiwan scholarship for  foreign students coming to Taiwan for admission.

For details about point 2 & 3, please go to the introductions for scholarships: https://taiwanscholarship.moe.gov.tw/web/scholarship.aspx

 

 

Q4. How much is the course fee? Is there a payment plan for the program?(貴校學費大約多少?可否申請學費分期)

For the tuition fees information, please go to http://interadmission.nuk.edu.tw/page.php?c_no=7.

If you are saying the installment plan of tuition fees, we offer three installments for paying each semester’s tuition. For your reference, please see the last file for download “NUK Tuition Fees Installments Application” on the webpage: http://dia.nuk.edu.tw/foreign/apply.html. The application form should be sent to the coordinator of International Student Affairs, Ms. Pauline Sun before the registration day. (The exact deadline of application will be announced on fb group of new admitted students by Pauline.)

Please be noted if an applicant fails half of his/her enrolled subjects last semester, it is not allowed to apply for installments for the new semester.

 

Q5. For the recommendation letter, is there any required format from NUK that I have to follow?(推薦信是否有規定格式?)

No, we don't have required format for applicants, but the letter has to be signed in person or with electronic signature on it by the referee.

 

Q6. Is the IMBA a master program completely taught in English? Is there any pre-requisite subject needed before applying since I have a bachelor's degree in engineering?(IMBA是全英文授課的碩士學位學程嗎?非本商學科系的大學生可否報考?英文檢定証書是否為必繳?)

Yes, IMBA is a fully English-taught program. Please refer to the introduction of the program on p.10 of the prospectus. To apply for the program, IMBA doesn’t require that applicants have to submit English language proficiency certificates or materials showing pre-requisite subjects or working experience related to business management, but the director of the program will interview every applicant through the internet for evaluation. In addition, English certificate is still a very good credit for application.

 

Q7. Is the entire application process online or do I have to send all the documents via post? (入學申請是線上申請嗎?有需要用郵寄繳交文件嗎?)

The entire application process shall be completed online. Please go to our website and click "Apply" button during online application period.
