Flowchart of the Examinative and Recruitment Separation Program

In order to improve the traditional entrance examination, integrate diversified entrance schemes, and respect the autonomy of technological and vocational colleges and universities in recruiting students, the Ministry of Education [MOE] develops the Multiple Entrance Program for Technological and Vocational Education [TVE]. The program consists of five admission channels: the Examination and Recruitment Separation Program, selection by recommendation, selection by superior skills, application, and joint allocation.


Since the implementation of the Examination and Recruitment Separation Program in the school year of 2001, the Testing Center for Technological and Vocational Education [TCTE] was formed by MOE to be in charge of administration of the TVE entrance examination. Given the new Multiple Entrance Program for Technological and Vocational Education, students need to take the joint entrance exam for only one time and the grade can be applied to the five admission channels, so that students need not take different entrance exams held by different recruitment committees and their burdens can thus be lessened. Along with the establishment of TCTE, Committee of Recruitment Policy Advancement for Technological Colleges and Universities was set up to coordinate the admission procedures of TVE colleges, to review the admission policies, and to improve the recruitment procedure. As for the admission of individual TVE colleges, the joint recruitment committees of colleges or the committee of individual institute are still responsible for the recruiting and admission policies and procedures.
