  Study & Live in Phuket – Destination Guide

Pearl of the Andaman Sea

Phuket is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. There are about 400,000 inhabitants in Phuket but from November to March, during the tourist season, the population grows exponentially. Around 5 million tourists visit Phuket yearly and they have several good reasons to do so.

The majority of the people in Phuket are disarming in their friendliness and extreme helpfulness – a big reason for developing a serious crush on the place. Thai people in general are one of the genuinely nicest nations in the world.

Read more in our destination guide for Phuket.

  • Student Visa for Thailand

    To study abroad in Thailand you need to apply for a student visa before the start of the semester. Please check the latest news and information about visas before applying for a visa at the Royal Thai Embassy website, where you can also get the required application forms and other information about the application procedure.

 Student Testimonials

The study program developed my skills for interacting in a multicultural environment. It increased my self-knowledge as well as my knowledge on Asian business life and culture. The quality of the courses was excellent. Many of my courses were better than at my home university.

"I didn't just have the time of my life but the most life-changing time of my life"

I studied in Guangzhou in 2012 and in Phuket in 2013. In both places, I didn't just have the time of my life but the most life-changing time of my life. Asia Exchange made the leaving feel much less daunting because of the support, instructions and help they offered throughout the process. They made it possible for me to leave again as a freemover in 2015 because of the contacts I had made. Everyone should live few months in Asia - that teaches you things about yourself you can't learn by staying home!

"Travel, grow and live in the moment"

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.

Angelina, Germany (

“Hey guys! Germany was my first choice. While I was thinking it over, a friend came up to me and invited me to go with him to Phuket. I’m so glad I went with him because the experience was priceless. If you are having a similar problem figuring out where to go, I’d love to talk with you and convince you to go to Phuket”

Josh, United States (

“Studying in a real paradise? I never thought these two things would go together but those 6 months felt like a dream life. Don’t miss this experience which will change your life forever. I’m happy to provide more details and answer any questions. Just drop me an email!”
