How soon can I choose an advisor?

Students shall confirm their advisor upon admission to the program, and confirm their co-advisor before the end of the first study year. The advisor could be from Academia Sinica or the Partner-University, and the co-advisor has to be from the other side. By the end of the first study year, a student may apply for a change of advisor with the agreement of the original and new advisors. If students experience special circumstances and wish to change their advisor after their first study year, they must submit a case that will be subject to the decision of the Student Affairs Committee of our program.
