Million reasons to study in Taiwan. One of the mentionable reasons would be Taiwan is a place that famous about tourism and food. Thousands of the foodies and traveler from all around the world visit Taiwan to enjoy the food and beauty of nature. For me, I feel lucky from being a student in Taiwan because I am allowed to learn the professional skills and be a tourist when I am free.
I study in Bachelor Program of International Chinese Culinary Arts (ICCA). Focusing on the professional culinary skill of Chinese culinary. We are also able to choose some course about other styles of culinary. I am very enjoying the practical course which we can learn and make the food by our own hands. Learn from a mistake when we get burnt or enjoy the food when we success!
In Taiwan, we will need to study for 4 years. Which means, we have more time to learn more professional skills. Normally, people who study the same course in my country will only need to study for 1 year to obtain the certificate. Also, I found that the culinary field in Taiwan is very challenging compared to other countries. Not only that, NKUHT provides the best kitchen than other culinary schools which can let student to more familiar about the environment in a real kitchen. Most of our lecturers were used to work in Michelin Starred Restaurant or famous hotel. So they always train us by using the reflection of a real kitchen.
Personally, I face no problem while applying to study in Taiwan. Everything went smooth and easy.
After my studies, I would choose to work in other countries to gain more experience. I am looking for a position about management because I think it will be very useful if I want to own my restaurant someday.

I met many friends all around the world while studying in Taiwan. Knowing each other’s' cultures is the best part during my studies. Also, I am able to improve my language skill (especially Chinese) in Taiwan.
