In line with the trend of globalization, “the International Exchange Center” was established in 2006 to help the University cultivating close partnerships with internationally famous arts institutions and universities, and also developing student exchange programs.
The university has not only increasing its international collaborations but also visited by many international professors, artists and students; We also provide exchange student programme for excellent students to overseas for further connection between TNUA and other international institutions.
The number of international students has been increasing steadily. It has created a learning environment that broadens students’ international perspectives. In 2018, with needs to maintain our current ties as well as to establish more profound exchanges and collaborations, International Exchange Center officially renamed into “Office of International Affairs (OIA)”, hoping to elevate the international works and projects that TNUA has been doing for years.
TNUA is actively seeking to establish formal relationships with world- famous arts institution, not only forming a firm base for a highly efficient international network, but also expanding its global visibility of both TNUA and arts education in Taiwan.
