Science Abroad - China: Taiwan (July - August)


Students will stay in residence at the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University. Depending on the campus at which students will be doing their research, there will be either two or four students per room. The residences are either all male or all female. Efforts will be made to place U of T students together, but rooms may be shared with other international students or with Taiwanese students. There are cafeterias on campus where meals can be purchased.  Students should budget about  CAD$750  for meals. 



No group flight is available for this program; students must make their own travel arrangements. Please note that if you choose to arrive earlier or leave later than the available dates for the accommodation option you have selected, you will be responsible for arranging your own housing for the extra day(s).

Entry Requirements

All students are responsible for making sure that their necessary travel documents are in order. Information on the current entry requirements for Taiwan is available by visiting the Global Affairs Canada website. Please note that most governments have implemented special entry and exit restrictions and requirements for their territory due to COVID-19.

If your flight plans include a stopover in another country (even if it is just a few hours long), you should also check that country's visa requirements in case you require a transit visa for the stopover.

Information on entry requirements is available from Taipei Economic and Cultural Office,
