The President of Tamkang University, Dr. Huan-Chao Keh, has been leading a delegation of senior TKU staff on a visit of sister universities in Europe. On March 12, 2019, the delegation concluded the French leg of the tour, and then flew to Germany, where it visited three universities with whom TKU holds mutual student exchange agreements and substantive exchange and interaction: Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the University of Bonn, and the University of Cologne.

After the TKU delegation arrived, they attended a forum held by the host university, in which TKU staff introduced various unique features of study at Tamkang, including its emphasis on internationalization, as well as inviting the president and vice-president of the host university to attend TKU's 70th anniversary celebration next year.

On the afternoon of March 15, the delegation visited the University of Cologne, where they were met by the Head of the International Office, Dr. Stefan Bildhauer, the Head of the Department “International Science” within the International Office, Dr. Susanne Preuschoff, and other personnel from the International Office, including Dr. Peter Haase and Miss Nicole Conde.
