"I would recommend Thailand for students who are thinking they cannot afford other countries. The quality of education is still present for those thinking Thailand isn't a place to go to school."

"I can't imagine being in a more stimulating place than Bangkok. I never ran out of new things to see and do, and luckily there was a group of Thai classmates that took a few of the exchange students on outings every weekend."

"If you are thinking about doing the Thammasat exchange…go for it! My time at Thammasat was unforgettable and I'm amazed that more students haven't taken advantage of this opportunity."
