National Central University (NCU) is a university with long-standing traditions in Taiwan. Founded in Nanjing in 1915, and was reestablished in Taiwan in 1962, becoming one of the top universities in the country.Located in Zhongli, NCU covers an area of 62 hectares. We have approximately 12,000 students, 8 colleges, 25 departments, 20 graduate institutes, 8 university-level research centers, one united research center, the Office of Teaching Centers and the affiliated Zhongli Senior High School. NCU is truly a comprehensive university which combines rich science and humanistic facilities.

The era develops and changes rapidly; the cultivation of talents’ key capabilities has become our biggest challenge. In addition to spreading knowledge, NCU channels its academic energy to local development to effectively shoulder its social responsibilities and displays its values and functions of a university. NCU is a student-centered university that gives consideration to education of liberal arts and specialization in professions. We endeavor to empower our students with professional capabilities, to develop creative teaching and learning modes, and to help teachers get involved more proactively. With the solid foundation of international exchange and cooperation, we encourage our students to go abroad, broaden their horizons, and increase their international mobility with actual practice on the tide of globalization.
Covered by shadows of pine trees, our campus is quiet and beautiful. While green economy is being promoted around the world, “sustaining social development and improving human welfare” are the essential educational purposes of NCU. In the meantime, we established the first Kunqu Museum in Taiwan, exhibiting rich resources in the field of humanities and creating rich opportunities for conversations between arts and technology. Concerning student aid, we also offer supports including grants and academic counseling to create the opportunities for disadvantaged students to move up on the social classes.
“Sincerity in knowledge; simplicity in life” is the motto of NCU, and it is the spirit that we expect all our students to keep lifelong in mind. In addition to achieving outstanding performances in their professions, students should be able to think reflexively, fit into the society maturely and considerately, and keep the sincere attitude of NCU. We aim to lead our faculty and students to create a learning environment with both strong humanistic concerns and academic research on this beautiful and culturally-rich campus, to provide students with global vision and diverse learning experiences, and to become one of the world’s top universities with unique characteristics.
