How similar is Mandarin Chinese in mainlain China to that spoken/written in Taiwan?

I’m planning to live in Taiwan for a year, and I’ve signed up to take Mandarin Chinese at my university, but I want to make sure this will be beneficial to me? How vast are the differences in speech and writing?
I’d like to add the the class I’d be taking is here in Ohio, USA, before mo departure. I might also take classes while I’m there, but I’ll mostly be working. Thanks.
