Taiwan Education Center-Philippines
The goal of the Taiwan Education Center (TEC) is to promote Taiwan higher education around the world for international students to study in Taiwan for degree programs and Chinese language programs. The TEC is set up following the “Operation Directions Governing the Establishment of Taiwan Education Center (TEC) Funded by the Ministry of Education.” The Taiwan Education Center-Philippines is established to host information sessions and education exhibitions annually, to provide information on degree and Chinese (Huayu) language programs from universities in Taiwan, to offer counselling for students on application procedures and Chinese (Huayu) language programs and the Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL), to further the understanding of Taiwan higher education and academic exchange and research collaboration between Taiwan and the Philippines.
Currently, Taiwan and the Philippines have strong relationship in the fields of trading, investment, tourism and labor affairs. In fact, the nine academic fields in higher education focused by the Filipino government are all potential areas for collaboration since they are the strengths of Taiwan higher education. The establishment of the TEC-Philippines will no doubt enhance the relationship between Taiwan and the Philippines in higher education, cultivation of talent, and Chinese (Huayu) language with long-term collaborations in the future.
