Conditional Admission

Overseas students who are academically qualified for admission to NTU but with no Chinese language proficiency or below the required language levels (TOCFL Level 2) may first be granted conditional admission to study Chinese language courses, for one year at most, in order to achieve the level of Chinese proficiency required to officially enroll in academic programs.

[Track 1] Conditional Undergraduate Admission– International Foundation Program

Eligibility:

Academically qualified students who have applied for Chinese-taught undergraduate programs through “Recommendation by Overseas High Schools” or the standard “International Student Individual Application” as Overseas Chinese students, Macau/Hong Kong students, or international students.

Language Proficiency Requirements:

Applicants granted conditional admission to departments with the International Foundation Program[1] may begin their undergraduate studies through this program and be placed in intensive Chinese-language courses. Students are to obtain a Chinese-language proficiency certificate at TOCFL Level 2 within one year. Once students have achieved the TOCFL Level 2 language requirement, they may officially enroll in the University as first-year students. Before the end of their first official year, students are to obtain a Chinese-proficiency certificate at TOCFL Level 3.

[Track 2] General Conditional Admission

Eligibility:

Academically qualified students who have applied for Chinese-taught programs through “Recommendation by Overseas High Schools” or the standard “International Student Individual Application” as Overseas Chinese students, Macau/Hong Kong students, or international students.

Language Proficiency Requirements:

Academically qualified international students who fall short of the department’s or graduate institute’s required Chinese level and are granted conditional admission must first study a Chinese-language program at the Chinese Language Division (CLD). They are to obtain a Chinese proficiency certificate at the required level or above within one year in order to be officially admitted to the University. The conditional admission will be cancelled if they fail to provide such documents within the one-year time frame.

Those who have been granted general conditional admission are responsible to pay for the CLD Chinese-language program fees.

All Chinese-taught undergraduate and graduate programs (except those departments which offer the International Foundation Program for undergraduates).
