The employment opportunities available in this exciting city are numerous and varied, with a huge amount of multinational corporations and thriving industry. The advent of ASEAN will inevitably further increase these prospects. Bangkok is also a center for commerce and is Southeast Asia’s key logistics hub.
Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world. It is a place where traditional Thai living is juxtaposed with multicultural urban lifestyles.
Education – international yet affordable
Bangkok is an affordable and easy place to live, with great food and friendly people. It is obvious
why so many have picked the city for their studies.
International students doing a Bachelor’s Degree will study at our Rama 9 campus, near Hua Mark Airport Rail Link station, which provides easy and convenient access to Bangkok city center.
Students doing a Master’s Degree can choose to study the part time Signature MBA program at our Rama 9 campus, or study at the Asoke Learning Center, which has a variety of study modes, class times, and delivery options such as blended learning – a mix of classroom and online study.
Make sure you purchase a ticket to Bangkok in advance. If you are using the university airport pick up service and/or stay in one of the student accommodations, flight details need to be submitted to student services no less than 10 days before arrival.
Before you enter Thailand, you need to have obtained a student visa (non-immigrant ED visa). The visa should be attached to one of the pages in your passport.
We advise you to have accommodation settled, or at least planned, before departure. Students can arrange housing by themselves or contact Student Services Office for assistance.
Other than passport and visa, students should bring with them original copies of any documents used in the application procedure.
When leaving the airport in Bangkok, you should have a sufficient amount of local currency (Thai baht). If you cannot exchange money in the country of departure, you can exchange at the airport in Bangkok.
*Please note that student accommodations (and most other accommodations) require cash deposits and upfront payments
They need to apply for visa at their local embassy/consulate which will initially be for 3 months only. All 3-month visas will be extended by the University visa officer after all requirements are completed.
Upon arrival or during orientation, you would need to get in touch with the university’s visa officer to understand visa matters and what needs to be done. All students need to understand that their passports and visas are their own responsibility. They will be liable for missed deadlines, fines and corresponding visa fees and should also be aware that their study visa can be revoked if rules are not followed.
*According to the Immigration regulations, an international student intending to study in Thailand has to apply for a Student Visa, otherwise known as a Non-Immigrant ‘ED’ Visa through a Royal Thai Embassy or Consulate located in his/her home country. Normally, a student visa application takes 2 working days for approval from the authorities and requires a Letter of Certification from STIU before an applicant is granted one.
The cost of living in Bangkok is very low compared to the U.S. While studying, you will receive a housing allowance of approximately $1,300 (45,000 Baht). This will allow you to maintain and enjoy a fairly high standard of living in Bangkok, whereas your lifestyle would be quite limited in the U.S.
