TAIWAN: Falling Birth Rates Begin to Hit Universities

# 05, May 2016
Earlier this month, individual university application results were released, showing the largest ever gap between the number of openings and successful applicants. Toko University had offered admission to 118 applicants nationwide, but only secured 20 new recruits, writes Christine Chou for TWN.
One place was even left empty in the generally full National Taiwan University's medical department, which has never seen any vacancies in the past. To quote Nicole Lee, head of the Ministry of Education's Department of Higher Education, the record-breaking statistics tell us one thing for sure – the impact of low birth rates has begun to hit higher education.
Government officials and educators have been aware of the trend for years, starting from 1998, the year when the number of babies born dropped significantly. This sudden slump led to a cut in the number of elementary classes in 2004, junior high school classes in 2010, and then affected senior high classes in 2013.
