National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) is a leading university in Taiwan that enjoys international recognition. A prestigious normal school, it operates out of three campuses, all located in Taipei. It is a premier research institute in disciplines such as linguistics and education.

NTNU first opened its doors in 1922 while Taiwan was still under Japanese occupation. It was first established as Taiwan Provincial College, which was later named Taihoku College. Its purpose was to educate and train natives to make them qualified to assist in the government’s administrative offices and functions. In 1946, the Kuomintang government of China obtained control of Taiwan and consequently redefined Taihoku College as the Taiwan Provincial Teachers’ College. The school adopted its current name and university status in 1967. As a normal university, its focus on preparing teachers remained, despite adding several departments. When Taiwan moved from authoritarian to democratic governance, NTNU saw a transformation in its role as the Teacher Preparation Law was passed in 1994. It gave schools such as NTNU a more active role in teacher training and being a normal university, its status as a comprehensive institution became more pronounced.

Over the decades, the university added new departments and expanded its list of offered courses and majors. Throughout its history, NTNU has upheld its commitment to academic excellence, which is reflected in the way that it has become a hub of international academic and research activity. It has produced influential researchers and educators and sent Taiwanese students to study abroad. Aside from enhancing its students’ education, these study-abroad opportunities have also helped attract international students to study in Taipei and strengthen exchange programs with various institutions across the globe.

According to latest information, NTNU offers more than 60 academic subjects across 64 departments and nine colleges, namely the College of Education, College of Science, College of Liberal Arts, College of Arts, College of Management, College of Music, College of International Studies and Social Sciences, College of Technology and Engineering, and College of Sports and Recreation. NTNU is also home to the world-renowned Mandarin Training Center, which accepts almost 2,000 international students yearly. NTNU is also affiliated with a senior high school.

The university has more than 14,000 students. Among these, over 8,000 are enrolled in undergraduate programs, while almost 6,000 are taking up graduate programs. More than 500 are Chinese students enrolled in preparatory programs. The university currently has a 16.79:1 student to faculty ratio and has three Nobel Prize winners in its faculty.
