Academic Environment

Tamkang University was founded in 1950, located in historic Tamsui area of New Taipei City in Taiwan. Tamkang is a comprehensive academic institute comprising eleven colleges that serves nearly 30,000 students. The University has long history with traditional reputation of higher education. In recent years, the Ministry of Education, Republic of China (Taiwan) evaluated the universities in Taiwan. They reported that Tamkang is the best university among all the comprehensive private academic institutes. Tamkang has enormous alumni residing all over the world, contributing in academia and industry with outstanding performance. The flexible capability, strong ambition and hardworking characteristics are highly appreciated by academia and industry. The above mentioned characteristics are related to the unique academic environment of Tamkang. Tamsui campus is at the excellent location, and the distance between the campus and Taipei city, the capital of Taiwan, is about half-hour drive. The university provides a remarkable place to gather scholars and talented students in Taiwan and overseas. The nine colleges, namely Liberal Arts, Science, Engineering, Business and Management, Foreign Languages and Literature, International Studies, Education, Global Research and Development, Continuing Education Division, provide adequate learning environment that fosters the students’ multi-disciplinary professional knowledge.

In 2014, the “Cheers” magazine (cheers.com.tw) announced a report of the favorite college students of the 2,000 largest enterprises in Taiwan.” Tamkang alumni have been ranked as number one for 17 times in a row among all the private academic institutes and are ranked as number eight among all the universities. Besides, in the same year of 2014, the “Global Views” magazine (cheers.com.tw) reported a survey of the favorite university by enterprise evaluation. Tamkang students and alumni are the number one among all the private universities in Taiwan in the competition index categories of job performance, global vision, independent work, team ability, and crisis management. Especially, in the category of job performance, Tamkang is ranked as number two among all the academic institutes in Taiwan.

We believe that the students should grow in an open and multi-disciplinary academic environment. Consequently, they are able to own professional knowledge, information technology, international global views, macro-thinking for the future, and excellent moral characters. The students inherit the great tradition of the past and then stand on a new ground for the future for creating the unique academic brand of Tamkang.
