For speakers of Chinese, Middlebury Schools Abroad has locations in China and Taiwan.


Middlebury in Beijing is based at Capital Normal University (CNU). Known as one of the best teachers’ colleges in the city, CNU has a broad range of disciplines, including the social sciences and linguistics. With its central location and some of the most impressive facilities in the city, CNU offers an ideal home for students eager to explore Beijing.


Middlebury in Taiwan is based in Kaohsiung at National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU), which consistently ranks in the top ten universities in Taiwan. The university is based right on the harbor, between the ocean and the mountains, and the campus offers many opportunities to students interested in marine ecosystems and the natural world.


These programs are designed for students with proficiency in Chinese, who adhere to the Middlebury Language Pledge® while studying abroad. The Pledge shows a commitment to linguistic immersion and is the key to students’ successful language development and cultural integration.
