Please refer to MCU Course Syllabus Guide.

Can I learn Chinese?
Exchange/visiting students, who are interested in learning Chinese, can choose to attend language classes by MCU Mandarin Studies and Culture Center (MSCC). MSCC classes are available for Beginner level and/or Basic level, including 3-hour a day for 2 days, i.e. 6 hours in a week, continuing for 15 weeks during school semester.  Total class hours are 90 per school semester. Since learning Chinese is voluntary, not compulsory, students have free will to decide to join MSCC language classes or not. If choosing to attend, students will pay tuition for MSCC language classes, i.e. NT$13,500 (for 90 class hours) per person per school semester, paid in NT dollars after arriving at MCU.

If students have no intention for fee-paying MSCC language classes, they can enroll in 3-credit Basic/ or Intermediate Mandarin course offered by the International College curriculum. This class runs 3-hour per week during the semester. Because it is part of the International College curriculum, there is no additional tuition fees if student is taking this option with International College curriculum.
