Overseas Research Internships

Program Introduction

To encourage NTU students to engage in research internships at prestigious overseas institutions and gain early exposure to foreign academic research, NTU has partnered with esteemed universities. Through NTU Study Abroad, exceptional students will be nominated for these opportunities.

These research internship programs typically range from 3 to 6 weeks in duration. Guided by experienced faculty, students can delve into in-depth research in their respective fields, paving the way for future academic growth. Furthermore, each program offers subsidies covering accommodation and generous living allowances, allowing students to access world-class research resources with only personal expenses for airfare, visas, insurance, and more.

Rice University


The MACHI program at Rice University is a study program designed by Professor Junichiro Kono at Rice University in the United States for outstanding female undergraduate students specializing in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The program includes a 2-week online course and a 5-week short-term research internship. The main purpose of the program is to introduce American higher education and cultural exchange experiences, expand students’ worldviews and STEM-related research experience, and inspire students to commit to scientific research work in the future.
