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.
