  • What are the requirements for GE courses? How many GE units do I need in order to graduate?

    Undergraduates are required to take a minimum of 28 GE units, including 10 language units and 18 other GE units. Students must take at least 2 units from each GE category.  For a detailed breakdown, please refer to:

  • Is there an upper limit to the number of GE units I can take in a semester?

    At the present, there is no limit to the number of GE units per semester a student can take, but to maintain a balance of major courses and GE courses, and a quality of learning, we recommend students limit themselves to no more than 3 GE courses a semester.

  • Are there department restrictions on taking GE courses?

    In general, there are no restrictions, but to mitigate students taking up similar coursework as their major, students are exempt from taking GE courses from their department.

  • Does NTNU accept transfer credits for GE courses?

    NTNU currently has agreements with National Taiwan University (NTU), National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST), and Taipei Medical University (TMU) for GE coursework. Regular first year to fourth year undergraduates who take transfer courses are not required to pay course fees.
