Students testimonials

"Study hard, and learn as much as you can both culturally and academically! Always remember to make time for putting that cultural knowledge to use. Travel, grow and live in the moment. Nothing could be more important than all of these."
- Lacey Cooper
Grand Valley State University (USA)

"The world has an interesting way of giving great experiences to the ones who are passionate about their dreams and want to live up to them. Thanks to the International Office at my home university and thanks to Asia Exchange for making this possible! Asia keeps calling me back!"
- Miia, Finland

"Phuket turned out to be an excellent study abroad destination and Thailand a fascinating country to live in. There is plenty to do but also serene, calm places in the wild, when you crave for some alone time. My preconceptions of Phuket as a mere holiday destination started to crumble from the first day onwards."
- A Finnish student in Phuket
