Education in Thailand: conditions and prospects

Education in Thailand

Higher education institutions in Thailand consistently ranked in world rankings. Thai diplomas of higher education are recognized in all countries of the world. In addition, economists claim that against the backdrop of the crisis in Europe and America, it is precisely the countries of the South Asian region that attract increased attention of the whole world. Therefore, studying at universities in Thailand is a reliable investment in the future.

Most universities are located in Bangkok, but Phuket also has good universities. For example, Prince Songkla University is the oldest university in southern Thailand. The date of its creation is 1967, and during this time he managed to establish himself as one of the best higher educational institutions of the Kingdom. He is consistently included in the Top 10 Universities of Thailand, in the Top 200 of the world ranking, and in Southeast Asia he has been repeatedly recognized as the second most popular after the National University of Singapore. In general, universities are located throughout the country - from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and from Khon Kaen to Phuket.

Now Thailand is actively trying to occupy the niche of the best country for education in the Asian region. At the Southeast Asian Education Ministerial Conference (SEAMEO) in Hanoi, the Minister of Education of Thailand and Advisor to the Vice President of the CEEMEO Conference, Mr. Ponttep, said that this was the main task of his department for the next few years. Therefore, Thailand is now very actively investing in education, providing the best technology to universities and attracting the best teachers from the USA, Australia, Canada and Europe.

Universities offer programs at various levels of education, from bachelors to doctors of sciences. In all major universities of the country, teaching is conducted in Thai and English, in some - only in English. All teachers who speak English are from England, the USA, Canada and Australia. They specially come to work in Thailand.

University Application

For foreign students for admission to some universities for undergraduate, a certificate of completion of high school and knowledge of English are enough. However, in general, those students who have one course of study at a Russian university are more likely to enter, since Thailand has a twelve-year education system.

To enter the magistracy, students will have to show a specialist diploma or a bachelor's degree, or an academic certificate, if they are still studying at the time of submitting documents.

For admission to doctoral studies you need a master's degree.

Students will additionally have to provide a letter of motivation, resume, recommendations, demonstrate knowledge of English using the TOEFL / IELTS certificate and pass an interview. Documents are usually certified by a notary and sent by express mail to the university until July.

The cost of education and accommodation

Tuition is low, much lower than in some European countries and America. On average, the cost of one academic year is 2000 - 6000 dollars. The cost of a monthly stay is about $ 600, including rent.


Prospects for students who graduate from Thai universities include the following:

  • obtaining an international diploma;
  • universal training programs in demand all over the world, especially in such specialties as business and management, advertising, design and many others;
