Cost of Living is very affordable on an international scale, and so is cost of study (tuition fee) at most Thai universities. Thailand is not really a 'cheap' country, however. As it is anywhere else, you get what you pay for. Prices vary widely, and so does quality, from 'Asian style' (rote textbook learning) to 'western style' (developing understanding and skills). This Web site aims to be your guide to making a qualified decision independent of whether you want to study a degree program, just spend one semester abroad as an exchange student, or take continuing education in the friendliest country in Asia. By the way, any foreign student is called an 'exchange student'. It does not need a formal exchange agreement with your university back home to study one semester abroad in Thailand: Study abroad in Asia!
Living in Thailand is something special, as you will learn. To provide you with the tools and background information you will need, we run separate Web sites on Learning Thai Language and Thai Geography, Culture, Customs, and 'Dos and Don'ts'.

The degrees follow the US system with Bachelor (B.A., B.B.A., B.Ed., B.Eng., B.Sc. etc.) in undergraduate studies, and Graduate Diploma, Master (M.A., M.B.A., M.Ed., M.Eng., M.Sc., LL.M. etc.), and doctoral degrees (D.B.A., D.Eng., E.D., LL.D., Ph.D. etc.) on undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate level at graduate schools. The terms 'international college' and 'international graduate school' are not clearly defined in Thailand. Some international colleges only offer graduate studies. 'International program' and 'English program' are often used synonymously. That is misleading, since some universities offer international studies in a 'Chinese program', conducted in Chinese (Mandarin), or even in Arabic language or German language. 'Graduate school' and 'business school' are also term that are not clearly defined.
The most popular fields of study among foreign students are business administration, marketing, business English, Thai language, general management and international business management on undergraduate and graduate level.
Don't worry that your English language skills might not be sufficient for studying in an international study abroad program in Thailand! Our experience shows that every student has a quite impressive passive knowledge and just lacks speaking English language. The more English becomes your everyday language, the faster you will master it. It's a matter of weeks, rather than months!
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Thailand, be it just for a semester abroad or for a full degree program!
