Chung Yuan Christian University

Introduction

Chung Yuan Christian University is an excellent study abroad destination for students looking to spend a semester improving their Chinese while also completing their Catholic University degree requirements in English-taught courses.The city of Taoyuan neighbors New Taipei, but has plenty to offer on its own in bustling, illuminated night markets, picturesque parks, and scenic mountains.

Academics

Chung Yuan Christian University uses the same credit system as Catholic University (15 credits = full-time), but interested students should be aware that many of the course offerings are worth 2 credits. This can require students to mix-and-match different courses in the same subject area to fulfill CatholicU requirements. Fortunately, the CYCU course catalog is easy to navigate and includes the syllabi that students will need to evaluate their selections.
 

Housing Accommodation & Meals

Participants on this program live in CYCU-owned dormitories. Students accepted by Chung Yuan Christian University will receive an acceptance letter that will include an application for housing, among other documents.

Meals are not included in the program fee, but students may purchase meals at on-campus dining facilities or at nearby grocery stores.
 

Financial Aid

Students interested in this program are strongly encouraged to apply for the Huaye Enrichment Scholarship (HES), which is valued at approximately $800 per month. The Education Division, within the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States, also offers financial aid in the form of a "Taiwan Scholarship." Apply for the scholarships here!
 

Exchange Scholars

Exchange Scholar programs at The Catholic University of America provide an immersive international experience for a limited number of highly qualified students. This exclusive opportunity enables students to study at a select group of prestigious universities worldwide. Exchange partner schools are selected on the basis of mission, academic excellence, dedication to internationalization, and a commitment to research.
