National Taiwan University is a national co-educational research university located in Taipei’s Da’an District in Taiwan. In addition, the university has 6 other campuses in Taipei and elsewhere. The university was founded in 1928 by the Japanese administration during the Japanese colonial era and was then known as the Taihoku Imperial University. After World War II, the government of the Republic of China resumed the administration of the University, reorganizing and renaming it National Taiwan University on November 15, 1945. NTU is considered one of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan.
