American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Kin Moy on April 12 welcomed Taiwanese students to study in the US. The AIT Web site now provides information on the application process for a student visa in both Chinese and English. In addition to that, the AIT has also set up a Web site with more information on studying in the US. Furthermore, the AIT is now offering free consultations for anyone who has questions about studying in the US.

According to Moy, graduates of US universities have gone on to become leaders and innovators in many fields around the world, and students studying in the US will be joining a group of outstanding young people. This chance to experience the dynamism, openness and quality of American campuses will be a life-chenging experience for students, says Moy.

Moy also points out that over one million international students are now in US higher education institutions, maintaining the US’ long-standing position as the world’s top host nation for international students. The US is also a top choice for Taiwanese students, with more than 21,000 Taiwanese students studying in the US last year, says Moy.

The AIT now offers information about the student visa application process on its Web site and has launched a second Web site exclusively for Taiwanese students planning to study in the US (https://www.educationusa.org.tw/) . Moy says consulate officials at the AIT work hard to process student visa requests, adding that the AIT’s Education USA advisers stand ready to answer questions about studying in the US.
