International Chinese Language Program
The International Chinese Language Program (ICLP), the world’s premier institution for the instruction of both modern and classical Chinese, was established in 1963 as the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies (IUP). Since then, it has offered intensive language training to over 2,000 students from more than 20 countries.
ICLP provides a year-long language program and an intensive nine-week summer program in a Mandarin-speaking environment which upholds much of its traditional Chinese heritage and culture within the framework of a modern democratic society. Students in the academic year program are encouraged to attend for the full academic year, though ICLP also accepts applications for one semester (UVA fall semester = ICLP fall quarter, UVA spring semester = ICLP winter + spring quarters).
ICLP enables students to achieve broad and independent competence in spoken Chinese and to develop reading skills needed for academic research or other professional use. The language center has an audio-visual room, reference library and computer lab with full Internet access for the use of students. Situated within the campus of the prestigious National Taiwan University (NTU), it enjoys the benefits of a central location in Taipei along with access to the full range of NTU's academic, recreational, and sporting resources.
