adoption of a new project funded by the European Commission
Adoption of a new project funded by the European Commission to boost studying opportunities between Taiwan and Europe.
Last year the European Commission started financing a scholarship program to increase student exchanges between Taiwan and Europe which is beginning this September. To expand the number of beneficiaries and extend the project duration until 2015, a follow-up program was just adopted by the European Commission for a total amount of 1.2 million euro. Courses will focus on language and culture and will allow selected students form Europe and Asia to stay up to 6 months abroad.
National Taiwan University (NTU) as well as three other universities from Singapore, Macau and Hong-Kong have been selected to take part in a students exchange program with European universities in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. This project is funded by the European Commission for a total amount of 1.2 million euro from 2012 to 2015. 90 students from Europe and Asia will benefit from this program which follows the adoption last year of a similar scheme.
The program will provide Erasmus Mundus scholarships for graduate students of the partner universities to allow them to study abroad for one or two semesters. The project is a two way scheme, i.e students from Europe going to Asia and Asian students going to Europe.
The goal of the project is to foster academic exchanges between Europe and Asia and it represents a great opportunity for Taiwan higher education institutions to pursue the expansion of their international faculty and students, two critical elements in today's higher education.
