Na­tha­lie in Tai­wan – Uni­ver­si­ty Ab­road


Hi tog­e­ther,
my name is Na­tha­lie and I’m stu­dy­ing In­ter­na­tio­nal Busi­ness. I would like to tell you about my uni­ver­si­ty vi­sit in Tai­wan. 

The short-term pro­gram is cal­led ‘Uni­ver­si­ty ab­road’ and it is a coope­ra­ti­on with my uni (DHBW) and the Na­tio­nal Sun Yat-sen Uni­ver­si­ty (NSYSU) in Ko­ah­si­ung, Tai­wan.

Af­ter our ar­ri­val in Ko­ah­si­ung at the 9th of No­vem­ber we were wel­co­med by stu­dents and staff from NSYSU. The fol­lowing week in­clu­ded lec­tures at uni­ver­si­ty whe­re they taught us about Tai­wan and its cul­tu­re. We also had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to vi­sit two Tai­wa­ne­se com­pa­nies and we had Chi­ne­se lan­guage clas­ses. It was fun to learn a few Chi­ne­se words even though it is a very dif­fi­cult lan­guage!
The first wee­kend was spent with a slee­po­ver in an aqua­ri­um whe­re we slept next to huge tanks of dif­fe­rent kinds of fi­shes. At the fol­lowing day we went to the be­ach in Ken­ting. Last­ly we vi­si­ted a vil­la­ge of the in­di­ge­nous peop­le of Tai­wan and got an in­sight into their lives.

The se­cond week was about pre­pa­ring and pre­sen­ting a pre­sen­ta­ti­on about the dif­fe­ren­ces of Tai­wan and Ger­ma­ny in the working en­vi­ron­ment.

Du­ring our free time we vi­si­ted a small is­land na­med Li­uqiu. It is such a stun­ning place! 

At the end of our pro­gram we spent the last 3 days in Tai­pei whe­re we vi­si­ted the fa­mous Tai­pei 101 which is the hig­hest buil­ding in Tai­wan.

All in all it was such a gre­at ex­pe­ri­ence! I en­joy­ed every se­cond espe­cial­ly be­cau­se of the warm wea­ther. I am re­al­ly glad that I had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to go to this trip and TecAlliance sup­por­ted me with that!😊
