President Chang expressed, “From the time of Tamkang University’s establishment, it’s grown to include four campuses: Tamsui Campus, Taipei Campus, Lanyang Campus and Cyber Campus. It consists of 8 colleges that can hold 27,000 students and has nearly 250,000 alumni, making it one of the most significant higher learning institutions in the nation. It’s my wish that the united effort of the alumni will bring to completion the Shou Chien International Conference Center within the next two years, a resource that will certainly prove to be invaluable.”

Every year TKU travels to Malaysia to give them a better understanding of what our university provides and to improve Malaysian student enrollment, leading to the successful, continual increase of international students.”
