These documents must be in Chinese or translated into English. These two documents must be certified with a seal or stamp by a Taiwan representative office or Taiwan embassy/consulate in the applicant’s country. Students who have not yet graduated must submit their diplomas when they report to STUT; otherwise, their admission will be cancelled.

The recommendation letter format can be decided by the person recommending you; however, please make sure that they clearly list their name, their relation to you, and their contact information.
