Chulalongkorn University is not accepting exchange students for the Spring 2021 term.
Chulalongkorn University is the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in Thailand. Founded in 1917 by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), the university was named as a tribute to the king’s royal father, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). Over a period of time, Chulalongkorn University, or Chula for short, has grown to become a full-fledged university. Today, Chula has eighteen faculties, a graduate school, eleven research institutes, three teaching institutes, and four affiliated institutions with more than 2,800 faculty members. The Chulalongkorn University campus covers 500 acres in the heart of Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. The campus is within reach of the major business and financial district, as well as various other facilities.
The word “Thai” means “land of the free” even though it is more well known as the “land of smiles”. When visitors arrive in this kingdom, they are greeted with warm hospitality and a smile. This country of approximately 60 million people is also the only country in Southeast Asia that has never been colonized. Tourism has become an important industry in the country. More people visit Thailand than any other country in Southeast Asia. In 2000, more than 9 million people visited Thailand.
Fall Semester: Mid-August to Mid-December Spring Semester: Mid-January to Mid-May
The Thai Business Degree is broken up into a Four-Year Study Plan. Students can choose any course offered in each semester as long as they have the appropriate prerequisite background. The class schedule for each semester will be updated and finalized a month prior to the beginning of the semester. It is advised to have a list of alternate courses in case you cannot get your first choice.
Chulalongkorn strongly recommends that all exchange students live in Nonsi Residence. Highlights include a shuttle service to the campus, individual room options, and an on-site pool.
Thailand is in the heart of Southeast Asia and therefore a convenient gateway to Indochina, Myanmar, Cambodia and Southern China. It is very easy to travel by air to many of the seventy-six provinces in Thailand. Internal air travel is cheap, easy, and quite efficient. The BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) Office will also arrange off-campus field trips.
