New Overseas Chinese Student Service and Registration Day Check-In
Orientation for Overseas Chinese Students
To assist new overseas Chinese students at our university in adapting to the new environment as quickly as possible, becoming familiar with campus resources, actively expanding their social networks, and cultivating effective learning methods for a successful academic journey, a series of orientation activities will be arranged during the first week of the academic year.
New Overseas Chinese Student "Chinese Language and English Proficiency Test" for Admission
To enhance the Chinese language proficiency of undergraduate overseas Chinese and international students at our university, and to strengthen their listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities for better adaptation to learning and living, all incoming international students are required to take the university's Chinese Proficiency Test (referred to as "Chinese Test") upon enrollment. Class placement for Chinese language courses will be determined based on the results of the Chinese Test or the Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL), with a minimum requirement of reaching TOCFL level 2 (CEFR level A2). The Chinese language courses are one academic year in duration.
Students who have not reached TOCFL level 2 (CEFR level A2) may choose not to participate in the Chinese Test by registering with the Overseas Students Advising Division and International Students Affairs within the specified period. Those who choose not to participate in the Chinese Test or do not meet the language proficiency standards for various Chinese classes will be directly placed in the General Chinese Language Course for international students. Students who pass the course may receive credit for six credits in the compulsory Chinese field.
Overseas Chinese Student Health Insurance (OCSHI) and National Health Insurance (NHI)
The university assists new overseas Chinese students in enrolling in the Overseas Chinese Student Health Insurance (OCSHI) and the National Health Insurance (NHI). According to the regulations of the National Health Insurance Act, overseas Chinese students and students from Hong Kong and Macau who come to study in Taiwan and have resided continuously in Taiwan for more than 6 months or have left Taiwan for a period not exceeding 30 days (excluding the days abroad) are required to participate in the NHI and pay the insurance premium according to the relevant regulations.
For financially disadvantaged students, they can obtain a certificate of financial need (translated into Chinese if issued in a foreign language) from the overseas mission or recommending organizations, overseas schools, overseas Chinese associations, or other institutions (non-individual) before coming to Taiwan. Upon submission of the certificate at the registration, after verification of eligibility, the Overseas Community Affairs Council will subsidize half of the insurance premium deductible amount. Additionally, upon arrival in Taiwan, before participating in the NHI, students may choose to participate in the OCSHI for 6 months according to the guidelines of the OCSHI, with half of the premium being self-funded and the Overseas Community Affairs Council providing a subsidy for the other half.
Work Permit for Overseas Chinese Students
Both on-campus and off-campus work for overseas Chinese students must be done in accordance with the regulations and require obtaining a work permit from the "Workforce Development Agency, Ministry of Labor." The maximum duration of the permit is 6 months, and the maximum weekly working hours, excluding summer and winter breaks, are 20 hours. Failure to apply for a work permit as required and being employed by others can result in a fine ranging from NT$30,000 to NT$150,000, in accordance with the Employment Services Act.
Starting from October 2, 2017, overseas Chinese and ethnic Chinese students at our university can use the "Foreign Professional Work Permit Application System" (https://ezwp.wda.gov.tw/) to submit their work permit applications online 24 hours a day. This allows for faster and more convenient processing of the applications.
Work-Study for Overseas Chinese Students
To support financially disadvantaged and students who have encountered difficulties, and to provide them with the necessary assistance for their livelihood, our university implements a policy that allows them to participate in work-study programs. Through work-study opportunities, we aim to foster their independent learning abilities. Work-study programs for overseas Chinese students are organized every semester.
