Going to school for Mandarin defer Military Conscription?

Postby kuanchengsong » 22 May 2012, 11:05

I'm a 26 year old taiwanese born American citizen with a R.O.C. passport. I want to go to Taiwan and study Mandarin which isn't the same as studying for a masters in any subject, so I was wondering if anyone else was in my situation and knew whether or not you'd have to be conscripted if you attend chinese courses at a university of some sort.

So you're a Taiwanese and now living in the states? Can you read Chinese ?

I doubt Mandarin studies are "real" studies that would get you a deferment. Language students are just part timers in their eyes.
