Known for its lively street-food scene and many night markets, the capital of Taiwan is a modern metropolis with Japanese colonial lanes, busy shopping streets and contemporary buildings. The skyline is crowned by the 509m-tall, bamboo-shaped Taipei 101 skyscraper.

One of the first questions students wonder when deciding to study abroad, is ‘do I need to speak the local language to study there?’ Every country and sometimes even universities themselves have their own requirements for the language of instruction. Students should contact the university to see if a language certificate is necessary to study there. Some countries offer inernational courses and study programmes in English as well, but you will most likely need to show proof of English proficiency. To receive an English language certificate like the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), four parts of the language are tested, including: reading, listening, speaking and writing.

Safety is an important point to consider when studying abroad. According to the current Numbeo Safety Index, Taipei has a score of 85.11 – ranking it at number 5 of 461 cities globally for safety.
