Semester exchange in Thailand

Study and intern in Bangkok, Thailand for a semester with an $8,000 grant

The grant aims to provide undergraduate Business and Law students the international semester exchange opportunities to study in Thailand where students will live, learn and develop valuable and essential local cultural knowledge from locals apart from their semester studies, and to learn and practise from the real-world workplace situations (internships) that enable them to develop their working skills and build international and professional networks in order to benchmark their competitive advantages and employ-ability (work-ability) after graduated.

With its long established reputation and innovative commitment, Assumption University (Thailand) as UOW host university partner will provide an incredible learning experience with substantial business subjects (taught in English by distinguished Thai and foreign professors) to students.
