NTHU Steps Up Recruitment in Malaysia
NTHU recently participated in the 2015 Study in Taiwan Education Fair organized by the Taiwan Education Center, Malaysia. This was the first time for NTHU to undertake recruitment activities in north-central Malaysia. During the event Malaysian high schools students, both Malay and overseas Chinese alike, learned about higher education in Taiwan and how to gain admission to top universities such as NTHU.
 
A total of 33 Taiwanese institutions of higher education participated in the event, which was attended by nearly 10,000 students and parents. According to Prof. Tai Nyan-Hua, Vice President of Academic Affairs, in this era of fierce competition among universities, no one can afford to miss an opportunity to recruit talented students, especially overseas Chinese from Malaysia.
 
Malaysians have long constituted the majority of overseas Chinese studying in Taiwan, most of whom are graduates of private Chinese high schools in Malaysia. The total number of such Chinese schools has remained about the same in recent years, but their enrollment figures are increasing. However, due to the fact that public schools charge a lower tuition and are more widely distributed, an increasing numbers of ethnic Chinese are choosing to send their children to public high schools. In light of this trend, NTHU is increasing its efforts to recruit ethnic Chinese who have graduated from Malaysian public schools. We hope that when these students learn about the outstanding educational opportunities available at top-tier universities in Taiwan, they will choose to pursue higher education in Taiwan, rather than in such places as Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, America, or Europe.
 
During the fair, the representatives of NTHU were touched by the visit of a number of NTHU alumni from Malaysia who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the event and helped to promote their alma mater’s publicity efforts. Malaysian overseas Chinese have been attending NTHU since 1994. Although their numbers are not large, their connection with NTHU remains strong long after they graduate. From their experience upon returning to Malaysia, it’s clear that their educational background at NTHU was a valuable asset in their pursuit of a successful and rewarding career.
