Where you'll study
Thammasat University (TU) offers courses in English in a tropical location perfect for crafting your own adventure and learning independence. TU is a public research university with a long history of student involvement in the politics and social movements of Thailand. Its guiding philosophy is on service to society, social equality, and social justice. TU is the second oldest university in the country and the most selective institution of higher education in Thailand. In keeping with the school’s social awareness ethos, all local students participate in service learning classes to educate the homeless, build kindergartens, and deliver public services. These opportunities are also available to you as an exchange student! One of TU’s main campuses, the Tha Pra Chan campus, is surrounded by many of Thailand’s most famous landmarks. When you’re not in class, you can continue your cultural education visiting nearby sites such as the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Wat Mahathat royal temple of Bangkok, or Thailand’s oldest university for Buddhist monks. Sanam Luang, a grassy city park that borders the university is a great place to take a picnic lunch or break between classes.
