National Taiwan Normal University Mandarin Training Centre

About the Program

NTNU offers Mandarin language courses during the summer. Immerse yourself in the language and culture, without missing a regular winter term at UBC! Please speak to a departmental advisor about the transfer credit process before registering. Fee-paying, non-credit cultural courses are also available.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.
