National Taiwan University runs the Visiting Student Program to accommodate students from non-partner universities who wish to study in NTU for less than one academic year. Students from partner universities may apply as a visiting student when the exchange positions are not available. The Visiting Student Program is a fee-paying program and visiting students will register as non-degree-seeking but full-time students in NTU.
