The National Taipei University (NTPU; Chinese: 國立臺北大學; pinyin: Guólì Táiběi Dàxué) is a public university in Taiwan, founded in 1949. Before 2000, the University was named the College of Law and Business, National Chung Hsing University (traditional Chinese: 國立中興大學法商學院; simplified Chinese: 国立中兴大学法商学院; pinyin: Guólì Zhōngxīng Dàxué Fǎshāngxué Yuàn). The university's main campus is in Sanxia District, New Taipei, Taiwan. Two other small campuses are in Zhongshan District, Taipei, Taiwan.

NTPU is regarded as one of the best universities in Taiwan, particularly in law, business, public affairs, humanities and social sciences. Approximately 10,950 students attend National Taipei University. It is also a member of the University System of Taipei (USTP).

History and development[edit]

National Taipei University is one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan. NTPU has undergone different stages of development. It began as the Taiwan Provincial College of Law and Business in 1949; it merged with and became the local Junior College of Administration and the specifically established Administrative Junior College. In 1961, it combined with the newly established College of Science and Engineering to become Taiwan Provincial Chung Hsing University. In 1964, the Evening School was set up on the Taipei Campus. In 1968 another Evening School and the College of Liberal Arts were added to the Taichung Campus. The University continued to grow in size, and in 1971 it became National Chung Hsing University. In February 2000, the Taipei Campus including the College of Law and Business and Taipei Evening School became National Taipei University.

Facing the challenges from all over the world, NTPU has adopted an aggressive approach to connect with the international academic society. So far, NTPU has signed MOUs and/or agreements with more than 110 universities worldwide to form partnerships. These partnerships are manifested through all kinds of programs for students and academic faculties, including international joint research, exchange scholars, visiting scholars, dual degrees, exchange programs, and internships.

NTPU has many exchange and visiting students from India, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, France, Poland and other European countries. Many of these students are drawn by our high teaching quality and the relatively low expenses. NTPU also provides various Master’s and Bachelor's degree courses taught in all-English instruction, courses on Asian/Chinese cultures and the Chinese language for international students who wish to learn more about various disciplines. Dual degree programs with the universities in the US are available in forms of internship opportunities for international students. Furthermore, NTPU is keen on organizing short-term inbound/outbound programs and other tailor-made intensive programs for our partner universities during summer and winter breaks.
