Prices of Doctorate Degree Programs for non-Thai Students
Tuition fees of international post-graduate programs in Thailand
When it comes to the highest level of formal academic education, other aspects may be way more important when choosing the right program. The field of specialization, the supervisor, the research ranking of the university, and the support a students get, for example in publishing partial results of her/his research, and certainly of the final thesis.
Certainly, there are often scholarships available, but in practice they are limited to the best of the best students. Many students, however, developed their interest in doing research only later on, often during the Master studies or in praxis. For them, scholarship support is often not available.
Thus, the choice of program and university often will be a compromise of what one can afford and the own perseverance and motivation to do the research.
Here, a price comparison steps in to help. If you want to do your research, a low-cost program may still be much better than no program at all.
We hope you find what fits you!
Some universities show their fees in U.S. Dollar or Euro. To allow for comparison, we calculated the fees in Thai Baht, as of October 2017 exchange rates. If different rates were published for different nationalities, we chose Germany for a comparison value.
All fees shown are for degree program students. Some universities offer lower fees for audition or non-degree students who come only for one semester.
Finally, according to the universities' Web sites, prices are subject to change without further notice. So please counter-check.
