Academic Information

 

AU students directly enroll at NCCU for either a semester or a full year and earn full AU credit. NCCU offers numerous courses taught in English in a wide range of subjects which are open to study abroad students. Courses are offered in a range of subjects within International Affairs, Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences and Business.

NCCU also offers Mandarin Chinese language instruction for interesting students at their Chinese Language Center, separate from the regular program at NCCU.  Interested students have the option of taking a 6-credit Chinese language class based on their language skill level at the Center.  Please note, as the language classes are separate from the regular program, NCCU will charge students an additional fee for these classes. NCCU does however offer a special language scholarship which students can apply for that covers these fees.

Please visit the NCCU website for more information on course offerings.
