FOR WHOM IS THE PROGRAM INTENDED?
The study abroad program in Phuket is ideal for students who want to get to know Thailand and Asia while living on the famous paradise island of Phuket. Exchange students are able to combine a challenging academic program, exotic free time activities and unforgettable experiences during their study abroad semester. The aim of the program is to broaden students’ knowledge of Asia in an international and inspiring environment.
Phuket is a good destination for anyone living abroad for the first time and the host university takes great care of its international students. Students have the chance to discover the island during the many extracurricular activities PSU organizes, such as home stays, Thai cooking classes, clean the beach boot camps, a night at the surf house, and so on. It is also possible to do voluntary work in Phuket (which looks great on CV!), if student so wishes, for example at the Asia Center Foundation children’s home.
