Program Information:

Study in beautiful Salaya, just outside of Bangkok, this summer to experience traditional Thai culture in the “Land of Smiles.” You’ll study at one of the most well-regarded universities in Asia, Mahidol University. Mahidol offers courses in Thai language and culture, Social Science, Business, Engineering, the Natural Sciences. and more. As a student, you’ll live in student residences near campus, roll out of bed and throw on your school uniform (no more worrying about what outfit to wear!), and grab some coffee and delicious Thai treats from the convenience store on your way to class. On the weekends, you can explore the mountains, learn to cook Thai food, interact with elephants, and so much more!

Here are some things to expect while studying in Thailand:
  • Comprehensive and affordable program that won't break the bank
  • Internationally-focused university
  • Electives in English with Thai language and culture courses
  • Easy travel to neighboring Southeast Asian countries
Location:
How to sum up the thrilling city of Bangkok? Home to serene spiritual temples and pulsing nightlife, Bangkok is in a class of its own! Nearly 10 million people live in Thailand’s capital, which is a dynamic city synonymous with the exotic. Bangkok is also a dominating force in Asian finance and business. Moreover, it has global influences on politics, culture, fashion, and entertainment.

There's a shroud of mystery over Bangkok that lures nearly 11 million visitors each year. Hop in a tuk-tuk (a three-wheeled motorized cart) and zip in and out of traffic as you visit the Grand Palace, the Vimanmek Palace Complex, and the thousands of temples around the city. Discover and embrace the amazing international cuisine, bustling street markets, and extraordinary energy around you. Your study abroad program is located in the city of Salaya, with easy access by bus, private van, skytrain, or taxi into the heart of Bangkok.

Thanks to Bangkok's proximity to the equator, you'll enjoy warm weather year round. Take a break from the city to visit the many jungles, beaches, artisan villages, and cultural/historical sites in Thailand. Indulge yourself with a Thai massage, ride an elephant, take a cooking class, or learn the martial art of Thai boxing. Whether you're exploring the cuisine, the tropical beaches on the coast, or the animated markets, Thailand will be an unforgettable study abroad experience!
