In addition to the study place, you’ll benefit from AE’s services, receive an AE Guide, an AE Student Card (student discounts) and the Orientation Days at the destination. The study materials are either provided free-of-charge or can be acquired very affordably.

Unlike other free movers, non-native English speakers studying abroad via AE are not required to take a TOEFL English language proficiency test, which costs approximately 185 $. Please also take into account that the cost of living in Asia is very low.

Applying to universities in Bangkok

It’s easy to apply to the universities in Bangkok. You will receive a confirmation from Asia Exchange within a week of applying. After that you can start preparing for the upcoming study abroad semester.

For whom is the program intended?

Both of the programs in Bangkok suit students who are interested in international careers. There is a large expatriate population in Bangkok, due to the number of multinational companies’ Asian headquarters, and the community provides excellent opportunities for networking.

In addition to offering a chance to build your international network, a study abroad period can enhance your creative thinking skills and intercultural competences. These are seen as a great asset by many employers on the competitive and globalized job market of today.

Bangkok is also one of the best places to call home if you are planning on travelling around South East Asia. Its convenient location and excellent transportation connections make it possible to visit the many beaches, jungles and mountains as well as neighboring countries during the weekends.

Students testimonials

"Being a student at Kasetsart University, which is a world-class university, allowed me to get to know and enjoy every single aspect of Thai life & culture. Even though I studied hard, I had also time to visit other South-East Asian countries. A student gets to know locals and the culture much better than a tourist. I heard each and every student saying 'I will come back here as soon as possible'."
- Angela Carella, Italy

"I can’t think of a single reason why not to study abroad in Thailand. My choice of destination was excellent and I would go there again. Studying abroad is a great opportunity to experience living in Asia – don’t miss your chance!"
- Henna, AE student at Siam University
