DFLL World Vision

 
The Department currently employs over 30 international scholars and specialists to teach up to 13 Western and Central European languages in addition to English. Our undergraduate and two graduate programs each host a small number of international students. We have received an increasing number of inquiries from prospectus students and job applicants overseas, and we expect the number of international students to rise slowly in the next several years, although the total quota is subject to MOE rules.
 
The Department has signed exchange agreements with three universities. They are the City University of Hong Kong, Ewha Woman’s University of Korea, and People’s Friendship University of Russia. We expect such partnership to grow in the near future as we are expanding our connections in Europe. We have launched an International Shakespeare Association in Taiwan following a series of impressive Asian Shakespeare Conferences in recent years. We initiated and co-hosted three international English conferences with universities in Japan and Korea, and have hosted the International European Languages Teaching Symposium three years in a row. Our students regularly take advantage of the hundreds of the NTU exchange programs each year. Both our undergraduates and graduates can apply for travel funds to present their research at international conferences. Our faculty has a very strong international publication record; on the subject of Modern Language, we ranked 31th on the QS World University Ranking in 2011, and on the subject of English Literature and Language, we ranked betweeen 51-100.
