TCUS not only facilitates the integration of teaching and research resources between four universities, but also maximizes the benefits to students and faculty. Students who enroll in any university of TCUS can take courses, participate in activities and lectures, borrow books, and enjoy all the advantages from the four universities.
The NSYSU-KMU Aim-for-the-Top Alliance was formed in 2012 on the basis of the existing cooperation between the two universities. This Alliance integrates the resources of the two institutions, not only to enhance teaching and research but to transform the two universities into an influential think tank for Kaohsiung City.
KMU was established in 1954 as the first private medical college in Taiwan. Among all the medical universities in Taiwan, KMU is the only university that was honored as a model for teaching excellence in 2014 by the Ministry of Education.
