Taiwan university creates Indonesian version of Web site

Taipei, Jan 14 (CNA) Taipei-based National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) has launched an Indonesian version of its Web site to attract more students from Southeast Asia to study in Taiwan.
The university added the new site to its existing Chinese and English versions to reduce language barriers for foreign students in gaining a better understanding of the university, according to Lee Yung-hui, chief of NTUST's Office of International Affairs.
Indonesian students account for more than one-third of a total of 223 international students studying at the university. Before studying at NTUST under a scholarship program, most of them had studied at Indonesian universities that rank higher than NTUST in international university rankings, Lee said.
Most of the university's Indonesian students major in engineering, management, and information technology, and most of the courses are conducted in English, Lee added.
According to a survey conducted by NTUST on international students' use of media to acquire information about Taiwan's universities, some 50 percent of the respondents said they searched for information about NTUST on the Internet, Lee said.
NTUST therefore decided to authorize Indonesian students at the university to create an Indonesian version of its Web site, Lee explained.
He said that Indonesians interested in studying in Taiwan would have opportunities to receive scholarships and be given Mandarin lessons free of charge, as well as be eligible to work for Taiwanese companies in the future.
