Summer Research: National Taiwan University

Nestled amongst tall palm trees, National Taiwan University (NTU) is Taiwan’s oldest and perhaps most respected university. NTU is centrally located in Taipei, with easy access to the MRT (subway) system at the university’s main gates. You can visit Drunken Moon Lake in the middle of the campus, explore Taipei’s lively nightlife and night markets, or climb the nearby Elephant Mountain for views overlooking the Taipei skyline.

Summer students at this established research university can apply for research topics in various fields such as political science, life science, and liberal arts.
