新住民因大學法修正條文 可享有同外籍生申學辦法｜Taiwan new immigrants to benefit from University Act revision
The Legislative Yuan Committee adopted a bill regarding the revision of article 25 of the University Act on Nov. 27, subsequently including Taiwan’s new immigrant spouses as students with “special status.” The bill states that they will no longer be subjected to the same educational regulations as students born and raised in Taiwan after naturalization. This would enable them to attend local universities based on their high school diplomas and other certificates.
According to the previous version of article 25 of the University Act, when one wishes to enter into a university to study for a degree/degrees, students, who are from significantly affected disaster areas, are children of government officials assigned overseas, have received excellent grades in international fields or writing contests, have been awarded excellent sports achievements, are a veteran, are from Mongolia/Tibet, are overseas compatriots, are from mainland China, or are foreign students, shall not be subject to the published recruitment quota or means of the corresponding law.
The article’s revisions provide Taiwan new immigrants with more effective ways to apply for schools. The Ministry of Education also points out that the naturalization process usually takes up between 4 and 8 years. During this time, new immigrants share the same benefits as foreign students and are able to use their junior high or high school diplomas to pursue a college-level education. However, after naturalization, they are no longer subject to this article; thus, they will be held to the same standards as local students, resulting in their previous diplomas being inapplicable which could create difficulties for them.
To solve this problem, the Legislative Yuan revised the article and lifted the restrictions on Taiwan’s new immigrants who have undergone naturalization, enabling them to further their education without limits.
