About Tamkang University

Established in 1950 as Tamkang Junior College of English, Tamkang University was Taiwan’s first private higher education institution.

Known as Tamkang College of Arts and Sciences from 1958 to 1980, when it was given its current name, TKU has sat among the some of the top universities in Taiwan.

It has bloomed since it was founded by a father and son pairing, opening four campuses – the Tamsui Campus, the Taipei Campus, the Lanyang Campus and the Cyber Campus – and eight colleges.

The main Tamsui Campus, found in the far north of the country, has seven colleges, 43 departments and around 100 programmes. New Taipei City, where it is located, is a special municipality that encircles the old city of Taipei. The name has been in use since 2010. The presence of TKU has contributed to the unusually high number of graduates in the city. The campus itself is located on the coast, north of most of the area’s urban population and south east of Tamsui Lover’s Bridge, a distinctive structure that opened on Valentine’s Day 2003.

The Taipei Campus is located in the old city of Taipei, the country’s capital, which is home to good food, excellent infrastructure, and plenty of parks. Both it and the Tamsui Campus are just south of Yangmingshan National Park, known for its mountainous terrain.

The smaller Lanyang Campus, located 65km south east of Taipei but inland from the east coast, enjoys stunning views of the mountains, the sea and Turtle Island. The Cyber Campus focuses on distance learning courses.
