Thailand is strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia and, though relatively small, it is an important center of the region. Known as Siam until 1939, the Kingdom of Thailand is a constitutional monarchy, with a prime minister and a royal family. 95% of the population are Buddhist.

The saying that Thailand is the “land of smiles” is still true, especially in the rural areas where traditional agrarian lifestyles survive. While eastern and southern Thailand is famous for its seaside resorts, the north and west are well known for its peaceful mountains and hill-tribe treks. Thailand is a tourist gateway and the friendliness of Thai people makes travel in Thailand and the surrounding region easy.

One of the premier study destinations in Southeast Asia, Thailand offers an enriching and vibrant experience for college students. Students can immerse themselves in a culture known for its warm hospitality and rich traditions.

Beyond the classroom, students can explore Thailand’s stunning landscapes, from bustling cities to beautiful beaches. Indulge in world-famous Thai cuisine, a delightful blend of flavors that’s both affordable and accessible. In Thailand, students can experience a unique blend of education and adventure, where learning extends beyond textbooks into the heart of an exciting and culturally rich nation.
