Besides being a perfect jumping off point for all of Asia,
Taiwan, unlike China, Hong Kong and Singapore, is the home of the world’s only
nation of Free Chinese with full human rights and freedom of speech, publication and thought guaranteed by a government founded in 1911 by Sun Yat Sen, a physician who studied and lived in Honolulu and who based Taiwan’s founding democratic principles on American Democracy and Bill of Rights.
Taiwan is inexpensive; fully modernized; with excellent health care, transportation, security; friendly people; great food; and far less pollution than other industrial Asian countries.
Located in the South China Sea, an hour east of Hong Kong, the island nation of Taiwan has a population of about 23 million. Most live in the north; Taipei, the capital, has 18 million.
Kaotech is located in the southern part of Taiwan, in the harbor city of Kaohsiung, population 2 million. Weather is great here, warm, sunny like Hawaii. Winters are mild with occasional temperatures dipping to 65 degrees. Rain is minimal compared to Taipei and sea breezes keep the pollution down. There are plenty of outdoor activities: jogging, baseball, surfing, swimming, skateboarding, rollerblading, street workouts, parkour, paintball available in sport complexes, parks and beaches. Taiwan is only 80 miles long, slightly larger than the state of Delaware in the US, and her other cities and recreational spots are all accessible with convenient buses, Metro, and High Speed Rail, easily, cheaply and safely.
Cost of living is about 1/3 that of the United States and tuition for all first year students is waived. Subsequent tuition per year is less than $4000 US dollars. Compare that with the 30,000 to 50, 000 US for a state or private university.
Why spend $200k for a four year Bachelor’s Degree or a $100k for a Masters, when both can be had here, at Kaotech. a fully accredited university for only $20k US?
Coming to Taiwan for school also affords the opportunity to learn Mandarin Chinese, a definite plus in anyone’s CV. Also Japan and Taiwan have a long history of cultural and linguistic exchange. Kaotech Tourism Management has an excellent Japanese language program, and extensive internships in Japan.
Students are allowed work visas and many opportunities exist to earn spending money, teaching English for a few hours a week at the dozens of cram schools. Hourly rates range from $17 US to $22. There is little or no tax.
And with a little spending money for plane tickets and backpacks the whole of Asia is within a few hours of flight time from Kaohsiung International Airport: an hour to Hong Kong, four to Singapore, three to Manila, Seoul and Japan. Special discounts are available to students with a student travel card.
Come to Kaotech for school, save money, and set your rising star on new horizons and unique skill sets. Be part of a universe you never knew existed.
