Counseling Association of Taiwan

University Counselors in Taiwan

We are an association of counselors in Taiwan, who work in support of secondary students transitioning to higher education around the globe. We welcome representatives from universities throughout the world to visit our high schools and attend our events. Our events and visits are run independently, but by working together we hope to show you how easy it is to conduct a series of visits in Taiwan.

For your convenience, we have a spreadsheet consolidating our preferred visit times. Please visit the links below for a direct link to each school's counseling webpage. You'll also find general information about visiting Taiwan and a printable map of international high schools in Taiwan.*

Taiwan is a vibrant democracy in East Asia with a population of 23 million. The official language of Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese; with English the most popular foreign language. According to Taiwan's Ministry of Education, there was a slight increase in the number of Taiwanese students studying abroad in 2013, bringing the total number to 60,839 students. The U.S. is the most popular destination with 23,000 students, though the number has been declining in recent years, with the UK the second most popular destination. (1)

*Corrections to the Taiwan International High School Map:

Directions to Washington High School should be updated to:

Transportation: Take HSR to Taichung Station, and then take a 20-30 minute taxi ride to our campus. (This is the easiest way to get to Washington High School)
