Taipei Medical University has welcomed students from South and Southeast Asia for years and works closely with selected institutions in Indonesia, Vietnam and other countries.


Under Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy, TMU continues to receive funding from the Ministry of Education’s 2017-19 New Southbound Talent Development Program and 2017-18 Elite Scholarship Program.

TMU will continue to deepen its collaborations with and training of regional health professionals by promoting education, research and health services in India, Thailand, Singapore and other countries. Topical TMU courses train international students in research skills, advanced nursing, oral medicine, public health and other fields while also sharing Taiwan’s culture. Selected TMU students also participate in regional internship programs that provide a global perspective while building links with New Southbound institutions.

Sixty percent of TMU’s international students come from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Singapore, Bangladesh and other Southeast and South Asian countries – and more than 90% of these students choose continued graduate degree study at TMU. New Southbound Elite Scholarship funding is also being sought to reduce students’ financial burdens and increase incentives to join TMU’s diverse research efforts in Taiwan.

These 2- and 3-year programs show recognition of TMU’s educational efforts as it strives to raise core education standards and recruit more elite international students.
