Speaking of the students at NTNU, Sheu once pointed out an interesting scene. Sheu has graduated from the Department of Chinese Literature at National Taiwan University and is now teaching at NTNU, while his wife, a graduate from the Department of English at NTNU, is now teaching at NTU. Almost every month there would be former students return to the campus to visit him, sometimes with small presents. However, his wife at NTU seldom sees former students return for a visit. “That’s the gratitude of an NTNU graduate,” said Sheu. [2]

Education in Taiwan

The educational system in Taiwan is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education. The system produces pupils with some of the highest test scores in the world, especially in mathematics and science. It has been criticised for placing excessive pressure on students and eschewing creativity in favour of rote memorization. Recent educational reforms intended to address these criticisms are a topic of intense debate in Taiwan.
