About US

Founded in 1946, originally as Taiwan Provincial Teachers College, the school's mission was to train outstanding teachers for secondary education. The name was changed to National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) in 1967, but the commitment to quality education and teacher training remained. With the enactment of the Teacher Preparation Law in 1994, NTNU transformed itself by creating many new academic departments and promoting international collaboration with prestigious universities overseas, as well as welcoming international students to enroll in academic programs. NTNU has established sister-school ties with 250 well-known institutions abroad, including universities in the People's Republic of China, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Austria, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, etc. In July of 2011, Webometrics Rankings of World Universities ranked NTNU number 17 in all of Asia and number 176 in the world. NTNU is a diverse, multinational institution and community, with an international student population of nearly 4,000, including those enrolled at the Mandarin Training Center. NTNU is composed of three campuses: the main campus, the Gongguan campus (home to the College of Science), and the Linkou campus (home to the College of International Studies and Education for Overseas Chinese).
