Program Origin 計畫緣起
The number of overseas students in Taiwan has grown tremendously. In 2010, there were 45,413 international students. In 2013, this figure increased to 79,730. In 2104, the number reached 92,685, and in 2016, overseas students reached a record high of 110,000. In response to the internationalization trend of education, the Ministry of Education (MOE) intensely expanded the recruitment of international students for its “Study in Taiwan” program.
In order to promote Taiwan’s higher education output, the MOE prioritizes its “Intensive host family operating mechanism for international students in schools”. For this purpose, it established the Taiwan Hostfamily Program office in order to promote a host family atmosphere, create a friendly learning environment for foreign students, attract more international youth to Taiwan to experience the local Taiwanese culture, and achieve the internationalization of both the community and campuses.

我國的境外學生人數成長快速,民國99年我國境外學生為45,413人,自100年始增加大陸研修生後,成長至57,920人,101年為66,961人,102年為79,730人,103年持續成長至92,685人, 104年已突破十萬人,而於105年更是突破十一萬人創新高。
因應教育國際化趨勢,教育部強化擴大招收境外學生來臺留學方案,促進臺灣高等教育輸出,將「精進學校辦理境外學生接待家庭運作機制」列為重點計畫工作,成立「友善臺灣-境外學生接待家庭專案計畫」辦公室,推廣接待家庭風氣,為境外學生營造一個友善的學習環境,吸引更多境外青年來臺,深入體驗臺灣在地特色文化,達成社區國際化與校園國際化雙贏目的。
