Date of activity: February 1, 2018 - February 10, 2018
The 2018 National Taiwan University (NTU) – The University of Tokyo (UTokyo) Joint Winter Program was held in Taiwan from Feb. 1 to 10, 2018.
This program was established in 2012, and now is in its sixth year with 31 students from both universities participating. The students each belonged to one of five research groups with a specific topic such as Immigration Policy, Urban Poverty and Social Support, and Diplomacy.
After lectures given by three professors from NTU, every group took part in off-campus fieldwork. Students with different majors and backgrounds cooperated together in analyzing the results of the fieldwork, following which they made remarkable presentations on their research. The final presentation session was attended by some alumni of this program.
In addition to the NTU program, the Division of International Affairs of UTokyo has also organized winter programs at the University of Otago, UC San Diego, University of Indonesia, and Zhejiang University this year.
