National Sun Yat-sen University ( NSYSU) Spring 2022 Admission for International Students

National Sun Yat-sen University was located in northern Taiwan, and there was not a single national university in the Kaohsiung-Pingtung area of southern Taiwan. To balance the development of education between the north and the south, the government decided to establish a comprehensive university in the south and named it “National Sun Yat-sen University” in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the Republic of China. NSYSU comprises seven colleges: Liberal Arts, Science, Engineering, Management, Marine Sciences, Social Sciences, and Si-Wan.
