The Commercial Section of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) is pleased to announce that more than 100 school representatives of U.S. colleges, universities and boarding schools will be in Taiwan this fall to introduce their educational institutions to Taiwan students and parents.

Why study in the United States? The United States has more than 4,000 colleges and universities, any of which can offer Taiwan students excellent educational facilities, faculty and programs. Obtaining a degree from a U.S. college or university prepares you for a lifetime of learning and can create opportunities in a wide range of professions in Taiwan. The most remarkable feature of the American education system is its diversity, allowing students to choose from a wide range of educational options, from large public and private universities to community colleges, vocational and technical schools.

U.S. boarding schools provide superb academic support and preparation for international students that want to attend U.S. colleges. Some of the features of U.S. boarding schools that attract Taiwan students and parents include their unique residential campus environment and their heightened interaction between teachers and students.

The goal is not to find the “best” U.S. school, but to find the school that “best” fits you. This fall, Taiwan students will have plenty of opportunities to meet with representatives from over 100 U.S. schools, in person or virtually, at the following fairs:
