Students interested in the undergraduate program of the Department of Mathematics can apply for admission through the following four methods:
1. General Scholastic Ability Test (GSAT, held annually in late January or early February for (vocational) high school graduates or those with equivalent education level) + the Department’s test (held annually in April for applicants passing GSAT)
2. Advanced Subjects Test (AST, held annually in July for high school graduates or those with equivalent education level)
3. Transfer students from other universities (held annually in July for current college students or those with equivalent education level)
4. Transfer students from other departments within Fu Jen (held annually in July for current Fen Jen students)
1. For (vocational) high school graduates or those with equivalent education level: The total number of students admitted to the freshmen classes is 105 including 50 for the Information Mathematics Group and 55 for the Applied Mathematics Group. There are two methods for the application:
(i) The General Scholastic Ability Test (GSAT) + the Department’s Special Screening Test: The first stage test is held nationwide by the College Entrance Examination Center (CEEC) focusing on high school subjects including English, Mathematics, and Science. Students passing the first stage test are qualified for the second stage test. The second stage test (the Department’s Special Screening Test) is held by the Department of Mathematics including a review of application materials and an oral exam. The application materials should include the official (vocational) high school transcript, an autobiography, a study plan (including the motivations of your application), certificates of competition achievement, certificates of student leadership, and any additional documents which may favor the application. Applicants are weighed on their GSAT score (50%), application materials (25%) and oral exam performance (25%) for the final decision.
(ii) The Advanced Subjects Test (AST): For high school graduates of science & engineering major, the test involves three subjects: Chinese, English, and Mathematics. The result of the test is computed by the formula of (Chinese X 1.25) + (English X 1.25) + (Mathematics X 2).
3. Transfer students from other universities for the sophomore year are evaluated by the test results of language proficiency (English only) and Calculus. Transfer students from other universities for the junior year are evaluated by the test results of Calculus and linear algebra (same for the pure and the applied Mathematics Groups).
4. Transfer students from other departments within Fu Jen University are evaluated by the result of an oral exam.
The department annually recruits a total of 12 students including 3 for the Mathematics Group (including 2 admissions via interview), 3 for the Statistics Group (including 1 admissions via interview), and 5 for the Medical Informatics Group (including 3 admissions via interview). The Master’s program currently admits students via following two ways:
1. Taking the annual Master’ Special Screening Test in November.
2. Taking the annual Master’s Entrance Exam in March.
Students who have obtained bachelor’s degrees from registered universities or colleges in Taiwan or from foreign universities and colleges recognized by the Ministry of Education, and those who possess equivalent academic records while satisfying all exams or application criteria outlined in the recruitment summary, are eligible to participate in the admission exam, and enroll for master's studies once admitted.
1. Master’ Special Screening Test: Applicants are weighed on the application materials (50%) and oral exam performance (50%), for the final decision. The application materials should include an official copy of college transcript (including all grades and class rank for each of the academic years), a study plan (including undergraduate study experience, motivation for application, learning plan, and future life planning typed in A4 papers), and any additional documents which may favor the application. The oral exam will test on the domain knowledge in each group and evaluate on applicant’s study plan. For other requirements and procedures of the master interview entrance program, please refer to the admission brochure available around mid-October each year or visit our website at http://www.math.fju.edu.tw.
2. Master’s Entrance Exam: The Master’s Entrance Exam are evaluated on the following subjects:
(i) Calculus and linear algebra for the Mathematics Group;
(ii) Calculus and Probability and Statistics for the Statistics Group;
(iii) Calculus and Introduction to Computer Science for the Medical Informatics Group.
Applicants with the same total score will be ranked by the score of Calculus. The applicant with the higher rank have the priority for admission.
All master students can apply for special scholarships, TA, or RA-ships each year. For exam details, qualification issues, application fee, possibility of scholarship, or other application regulations, please refer to the examination brochure available around December each year at http://www.oie.fju.edu.tw/admission or visit our department website at http://www.math.fju.edu.tw.
