Student services

  • Student Service Center

On March 17th, 2008, we established our center, which originated from immediate center and belonged to the office of Student Affairs. In the immediate center, we responded to students’ questions immediately. To avoid students’ inconvenience of handling any paper and business, we established student service center, which will handle students’ problems immediately on their arrival. We are responsible for all kinds of student affairs, including those in the office of Academic Affairs, the office of Student Affairs, the division of General Affairs, library, and so on. We offer students more diverse and efficient service with the kind, direct, and active attitude.

Student Life

Campus life

Our campus is located on the Jia-nan Plain, in the southwest part of Taiwan. As the most important agricultural area of Taiwan, the Jia-nan Plain can be called “Taiwan’s home of rice and seafood." Set against mountains and facing the sea, the plain has beautiful natural beauty and scenery. Within this area, many medium- and small-scale businesses have been developing and booming.  

Student clubs

At present, there are 99 clubs on campus, so hopefully all will be able to find one of interest. Clubs or Societies can be registered and are listed according to the club categories: service, academic, entertainment, physical, and public relationship.

Student Reviews

Dentistry is my life
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

Good dental clinical practice

Great place to be an international student!
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great university, with lots of support from the faculty for foreign students. The only downside is at times there is important information or emails that are not in English, but you can usually have a professor fill you in with no problem.

Perfect school for Low budget and quality of education
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

My experience at STUST was great. Academically the biggest draw back is the university could offer very less to students because most of the university resources are in Chinese so there is very limited amount of course work and university experience apart from the faculty are very friendly. scholarships and funding is very good
