Incoming Preparation Seminar

For better understanding of your project and the country you’re living in for 6 to 8 weeks, we provide a welcome seminar for you to prepare yourself for this new start.

Arrival pick up

You might feel terrified being alone when you first arrive in a country you have never been to before. No worries, someone will be waiting to pick you up and show you where to go!

Country Tour

Don’t want to be stuck in the same place, but don’t know where to travel? Then join the tours run by local guides and experience authentic Taiwanese culture!

Exchange buddy

It’s quite daunting to go to a new country with a completely different culture all by yourself, but don’t worry! You will be assigned to a local buddy to provide you with support and to help you understand Taiwan.

Farewell Party

Before saying goodbye we’ll host a farewell dinner and party. We hope you’ll end your experience with fond memories!
