✨海外實習有甚麼需要注意的地方呢 What should be noted for overseas internships？
Before embarking on an overseas internship, one should thoroughly understand the relevant regulations and labor conditions related to internships in the host country.
Obtain a valid visa that corresponds to the purpose of the internship and allows legal entry into the country.
Sign both the domestic and foreign language versions of the internship contract and individual internship plan.
Insurance regulations related to internship work vary from country to country. Even in countries with compulsory social insurance, medical expenses can be quite high. It is advisable to research the relevant health insurance options in the host country before the internship. In addition to the insurance provided by the institution, students may consider obtaining additional travel insurance to enhance their coverage during the overseas internship.
Always be vigilant about personal safety, safeguard your passport and other personal identification documents, and comply with local laws and regulations.
In case of any special circumstances, students can contact the guidance teacher, department, and alumni center at any time

Based on the Cross-Strait Relations Act, the purpose of educational exchanges between Taiwan and mainland China is to promote mutual understanding and communication, following the principle of "equal and reciprocal" treatment. All educational exchange activities should adhere to the laws, regulations, and current policies of both sides. Please be aware that such exchanges should not violate any legal provisions or involve political content, and they should not include exchanges with the mainland Chinese government or military institutions.
According to the letter with reference number Taidiao-Wen-2 Zi No. 1122501861 from the Ministry of Education, each department should provide relevant information about the exchange program to the Office of International Affairs at least one and a half months before departure. This information should include the details of the activity, the list of participants, and the checklist for handling cross-strait educational exchanges. After completing the activity, please submit a summary report to the Office of International Affairs within 20 days to facilitate the registration of the activity on the "Platform for Recording Cross-Strait Educational Exchanges."
Please remember to apply for a Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents (Tai Bao Zheng). For military conscripts, please follow the instructions above to complete the exit procedure.
✨我有中低收入戶資格，有甚麼需要需要注意的地方嗎 As a qualified recipient of low to moderate income household status, are there any points to note？
According to the "Social Assistance Act," the determination of low to moderate income household status is based not only on the family's income but also on the requirement that all household members must have actually resided in Taiwan for more than 183 days within one year. Therefore, participating in an overseas internship for more than 183 days may result in the cancellation of the low to moderate income household status. To avoid severe impact on students' rights, the Ministry of Education has been working with the Ministry of Health and Welfare to devise subsidy measures.
It is essential for all students to report to their respective departments and alumni center at least 2 months before going abroad. This facilitates the reporting to the Office of Student Affairs and completion of relevant documentation.
Upon returning to Taiwan, students should take note of the following:
After reporting back to the school, the department should promptly inform the alumni center and notify the local government's social welfare department of the student's household registration status.
The responsible personnel in the Office of Student Affairs can access student information in the system for tuition fee waivers. If the information is not found, students should apply for a paper certificate from the local social welfare department.
