This Passport to Global Learning is your first step toward
the world of international education!

Globalization isn’t just a slogan at TMU – university leaders have carefully planned and
implemented internationalization as a vital part of each student’s experience

  • Five core international abilities encourage student mobility and enhance multicultural contacts:
  • 1. Understanding and appreciating cultural differences between different nations
  • 2. Being intellectually empowered to analyze international affairs
  • 3. Enhancing use of foreign language skills
  • 4. Building mobility capacities and openness to foreign career paths
  • 5. Understanding the obligations of international citizenship
  • Five categories of global learning activities:
  • 1. Language learning: foreign language courses (for credit) or language examination workshops, etc.
  • 2. Cultural experiences such as the International Food Festival or International Culture Night
  • 3. Academic training: international symposiums or workshops
  • 4. Student volunteering: receptions for foreign guests
  • 5. Course participation: for-credit globalization or multicultural courses

Any student enrolled in TMU can get a Passport to Global Learning. And by showing student ID after participating in Passport-related activities, students can “PGL points” to get Apple TV, Audio-Technica headphones, Polaroid SNAP TOUCH or other prizes.
