Thinking about studying abroad for the Fall Semester of 2024 but not sure where to go? Well, the Study Abroad Team is excited to add a new possible destination to your list. Introducing… UA Bangkok!

Embark on your academic journey in Thailand’s popular capital - Bangkok! UA Bangkok is hosted by the esteemed Mahidol University International College. Building upon our successful exchange program with Mahidol University, we are thrilled to officially establish an Arizona Abroad site, offering students more opportunities for academic and cultural enrichment for the upcoming Fall and Spring semesters!

Mahidol University International College is located in the suburban area of Phutthamonthon District, right near the city limits of Bangkok in Nakhon Pathom Province. Mahidol University has a stunning garden-like setting—an ideal place for studying or relaxation! Despite its tranquil setting, Mahidol University remains conveniently close to the vibrant city energy of Bangkok. Whether you're seeking a quiet sanctuary for focused learning or craving the excitement of urban life, Mahidol University offers the best of both worlds.


Study Abroad Coordinator Nicole Staab is excited to see UA Bangkok join the Arizona Abroad portfolio. “UA Bangkok offers an educational adventure within Thailand’s stunning natural sights. Mahidol University International College prepares students to broaden their understanding of Thai culture while cultivating their own personal academic endeavors.”

At UA Bangkok, students will have a variety of academic opportunities. With a choice of approximately 200 courses across the faculties of Arts, Sciences, and Business Administration, the diverse course offerings at UA Bangkok cater to every interest and aspiration. The Study Abroad Team has also developed a Global Track for Business majors at UA Bangkok which provides Business students a list of courses pre-approved by their department.

Additionally, students at UA Bangkok can enjoy the same financial benefits abroad as they do at University of Arizona, meaning they can pay their regular UArizona tuition rate and utilize most of their regular financial aid and scholarships to support their studies abroad! For further details on the types of funding accepted, students can refer to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid Study Abroad Page.

Convinced yet? Head over to the UA Bangkok program page to discover more about this incredible opportunity to further advance your studies and broaden your horizons. Fall 2024 and 2024-2025 Academic Year applications close April 25. Your journey awaits!
