  • Alumni here. Best school in Taiwan but hard to get in.
  • Originally opened as Taihoku Imperial University in 1928 under Japanese rule as, it was reestablished as National Taiwan University after the end of World War II. NTU is generally considered Taiwan's #1 university and has a traditional design, over a flat landscape. It is an interesting place to visit even if you are only temporarily in Taiwan The first thing you'll notice is the amount of students riding bicycles between classes. Students here are very nice and helpful, however unfortunately you will not be able to explore any buildings without supervision.
  • I went here not for academic purposes. When Meteor Garden was televised in the Philippines, it captured the heart of the Filipinos. Many of us fell inlove with the characters, F4 and San Chai. Known to us as Ying De University, it is a must for Filipinos to visit this place once we visit Taipei, Taiwan. Coming here this year is nostalgic.
  • The most famous university in Taiwan, populated with talented students and hard working professors. Foods here are cheap and versatile. Surrounded by trees, bushes, and flowers displayed differently at four seasons, it is a excellent place for family or friends to spend time walking around.
  • I am a student here at National Taiwan University and I love it ! I think it is chinas best university and it has very good classes , and the student apartments are nice and pretty luxury !
