Course Questions

1.
Q: How many hours of class will I have per week?
A: In NSYSU the maximum class time for graduate students is 15 hour/week, and 25/week for undergraduate students. 

Any exchange students taking courses of longer class time will have to apply to the college office and obtain approval before they are allow to do so.  NSYSU, however, does not regulate the minimum workload nor the subjects of class for exchange students; exchange students will have to plan their own course schedule and if necessary, in accordance with the regulations by their home universities.


2.
Q: Where can I check courses availability?
A: Course schedule is available at:http://selcrs.nsysu.edu.tw/smain.asp?eng=1.  The website is updated as soon as any changes take place but course availability does change from time to time, so it is always worth checking.


3.
Q: Am I automatically registered for Mandarin course?  Can I opt out?
A: Yes, as an exchange student you will be automatically assigned for a mandarin course that usually runs from 12:10 to 14:00 through Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  This is because we believe learning the local language is essential to understanding the Taiwanese culture, and will (hopefully) be a rewarding part of your exchange experience in Taiwan. 

You are therefore encouraged, but not obliged, to participate in the Mandarin language courses.  If you decide not to take Mandarin, please inform the Chinese Language Center (CLC) of your decision within the first two weeks after the semester commences.


4.
Q: If I am interested in a regular course that conflicts with the Mandarin course schedule, can I take both Mandarin and the said course?
A: No, unfortunately you cannot.  The registrar system will not allow you to sign up for either course.


5.
Q: Can I take courses taught in Mandarin?
A: Yes, you are encouraged to take courses taught in both English and Mandarin if you believe you can handle both the contents and language of the course instruction.

Scholarship and VISA

In recognition of the diverse academic systems around the world yet to maintain class order and the rule of "fair play", any students departing early and not finishing the entire semester must provide official certificate issued by their home universities stating the cause for their early return, and to inform and obtain approval from all of their course instructors as soon as possible.
