The Foundation for International Cooperation in Higher Education of Taiwan (FICHET) and 25 universities attend the 31st European Association for International Education (EAIE) at the Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre from September 25th to 27th. The theme for this year’s conference is “Encompassing all voices”. By drawing together different cultures, nationalities, and professions within higher education, EAIE has developed a platform for creating dynamic partnerships within higher education. We believe that the “Study in Taiwan” pavilion will increase the international visibility of Taiwan’s higher education and the opportunities for international cooperation.
In the past years, FICHET has been leading Taiwan’s higher education institutions to participate in the EAIE conference. This year, under the coordination of the Ministry of Education and FICHET, there are over 50 representatives from Taiwan attending the conference, and most of the representatives are the deans and directors of international affairs offices in universities.
In addition, Representative Chang from the Taipei Representative Office in Finland visit “Study in Taiwan” pavilion to promote and increase the international visibility of Taiwan’s higher education and attract more international students to study in Taiwan.
After promoting “Study in Taiwan” in EAIE for several years, “Study in Taiwan” are gradually known to many higher education institutions in Europe. The collaboration and interactions have been increasingly active. The student number in 2018 from Europe is 6,943 and the major subject fields for degree students are Business and Management, Social Science and Humanities. We hope with the advantage of “affordable scholarship, quality education, cultural diversity, and friendly environment” to attract more excellent international students to study in Taiwan and strengthen the cooperation with higher education institutions in Europe.
