Enforcement of Chinese language requirements for international graduate students

According to the regulation, all international graduate students should passed the (Minister of Education) TOCFL Level-A2 test for Listening and Reading or the CYCU’s Chinese Examination in order to satisfy one of the graduation requirements.

To enhance their Chinese language skills, the students can take four Chinese enhancement courses- two are for listening and two are for reading.  If needed, students can take more courses to enhance their Chinese proficiency to reach TOCFL Level-A2 or to pass the CYCU’s Chinese Examination.  It is noted that all these courses can be taken free of charge to the students.  The following are exempted in taking the TOCFL Level-A2 test or CYCU’s Chinese Examination:

1. Students passed TOCFL Level-A2 test for Listening and Reading before the enrollment,

2. Students took and passed Chinese courses for two semesters during their high school or college studies.

The above requirements do not apply to the Dual-degree students, since they need to enroll in at least 1 Chinese course in every semester to satisfy one of the graduation requirements.
