All NTU exchange/visiting students are eligible to take a NTU Chinese Course, which is a regular academic course with credits. If you select your willingness to enroll in a NTU Chinese course on the application form, you will be automatically enrolled after you complete the registration and placement test. We currently offer courses at a variety of levels in General Chinese, Enhancing Chinese and Applied Chinese courses. Students are assigned to an appropriate level after a placement test.
There is no need to select the General or Enhancing Chinese Courses in Online Course Selection System. Your Chinese placement test results will appear on the NTU course selection system one week after the placement test. Please make sure to “confirm” your results on the system as soon as possible. Any time conflicts with your class schedule is not allowed. If you would like to add or drop the course, please follow NTU course selection regulations. If you are taking the General Chinese Course at NTU for the first time, you must complete the registration and take the placement test.
If your Chinese language proficiency is of good level, taking the Applied Chinese courses is another option.
You may also choose to take additional Chinese courses offered to international students. The Office of International Affairs of the University currently oversees all Learning Chinese at NTU program. For further information, please visit OIA website.
NTU international students are eligible to take NTU General Chinese Courses up for one year. Students who have taken General/Enhancing Chinese courses for the first semester will be automatically enrolled in the second semester to next level.
Morning and evening classes offer the same content at the same level. They only differ in their class time.
General Chinese Courses at NTU usually award no more than three credits; however, your home institution may reevaluate or determine your transfer credits differently.
Enhancing Chinese Courses at NTU award one credit; however, your home institution may reevaluate or determine your transfer credits differently.
Your Chinese placement test results will appear on the NTU course selection system one week after you take the test.

Those who do not attend the General Chinese Course are not able to take the Enhancing Course.
