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.

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 bring the beaches, jungles and mountains, in addition to  the neighbouring countries, only a weekend trip away.

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
