The TSP is delighted to invite several speakers to debrief various scholarship schemes about learning Mandarin in Taiwan or conducting research in Taiwan. The language scholarships are open to those holding a full UK passport and currently studying Chinese (at any level).

We will have an informative lunch seminar on 6 February at the Hemsley, University Park from 12.30-2.30pm about various scholarships on Taiwan. Applicants are required to complete an application form and submit to Mandy along with a number of supporting documents including study/research plan, copy of passport, copy of degree certificate and transcript and evidence of application to a degree programme at a recognised university. If the programme is not taught fully in English (there is a list of approved English-taught courses), they must also include a copy of a 'Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language' (TOCFL) certificate at B and B or higher. No other language proficiency certificate is accepted.
