Bangkok is also one of the best places to call home if you are planning on travelling around South East Asia. Its convenient location and excellent transportation connections make it possible to visit the many beaches, jungles and mountains as well as neighboring countries during the weekends.
Siam University (SU) is Thailand’s fifth largest private university and has several exchange agreements around the world. It is a popular exchange location among international students: there are 400 international students who participate in SU’s international programs every year.
Studying at Siam University gives you the options of joining the program for one or two semesters or doing an entire undergraduate degree at Siam University.
Students who study at Siam University via AE, participate in SU’s International Business Program (IBP). IBP is an undergraduate degree program taught in English and the participants are both Thai and international students.
The program is business focused, i.e. most of the courses are in Economics, Finance, Marketing, Management and Trade, but there are several courses from Social Sciences as well. Following, students participating in IBP do not need to have a background in business studies.
Exchange students at SU have plenty of options when making their course selections since they can pick their IBP courses freely from the level and subject area that is most suitable and interesting for them.
Siam University arranges approximately 20 courses in English each semester as part of the program. The tuition fee covers six courses. Two of the six courses can also be picked from the MBA program.
The fee for non-European students is 2880 USD per semester starting in 2017. The registration fee is 97 USD.
The tuition fee covers:
- Guaranteed placement in the program within a week of sending in the application

- An official acceptance letter and an official transcript from the Asian university
