General information

Country Taiwan
About the University The College of Law (formerly known as the Department of Law) dates back to Taihoku Imperial University that was built during Japanese colonial era (1927-1945).
After the Second World War, the Imperial University was renamed as the National Taiwan University, while the College of Liberal Arts and Political Science were separated into the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Law. Before 1999, College of Law consisted Department of Law, Political Science and Economics. In August 1999, Department of Law was renamed as College of Law; other departments which were under the former College of Law became part of College of Social Sciences.

Department of Law consists of 3 divisions: the Division of Legal Sciences, Division of Judicial Administration and Division of Economic and Financial Law. Master program in law (LL.M.) began in 1955, and doctoral program (Ph.D.) was established in 1971. To promote interdisciplinary legal education, the Graduate Institute of Interdisciplinary Legal Studies began its operations in August 2004 and offers an LL.M. degree to students who originally specialized in other field of study, and aim to integrate their expertise with law.

Marco Polo grants do not cover travel and residential expenses completely; they are merely a contribution towards the extra costs involved in studying abroad.

In 2017-2018 the Marco Polo grant has been set at €170,-- to €290,-- per calendar month, depending on the country of your host university. This may change per academic year.

Your application for an exchange period at one of the Faculty’s partner universities also counts as your application for a grant. When you receive notification of a place for study abroad, you will also learn whether or not you have been awarded a Marco Polo grant.
