In partnership with the National Kaohsiung University of Hospitality & Tourism (NKUHT), Humber provides Taiwanese students the chance to study, explore Canada and gain exposure to the hospitality industry. Students study English and complete a work placement in Canada.
Our partnership with the National Kaohsiung University of Hospitality & Tourism (NKUHT) provides students from Taiwan with the chance to study business practices and gain exposure to the tourism and hospitality industry in Canada.
For the first two years of their program students attend NKUHT, and in their third year they come to Canada to study, returning to NKUHT for their final year. While in Canada, the students begin by taking English classes and then take academic courses related to the program area they were studying in Taiwan. At the end of their classroom studies they complete an internship placement in Canada.
While at Humber the students host a full day cultural event in the concourse that is attended by the Humber community and representatives from the Taipei Economical & Cultural Toronto office. The event showcases many of the traditional elements of Taiwanese culture including: cooking demonstrations, food tasting, intricate dance performances, calligraphy demonstrations, and much more.
Students from the following programs at NKUHT are eligible to participate:
Humber is honoured to have been selected as a Taiwan Academy Contact Centre and will serve as an important medium for the cultural exchange between Taiwan and the international community.
