EXCHANGE / INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Although the majority of the student body is from Thailand, in a typical year approximately 50 to 60 foreign exchange or visiting students (about 10 to 15% of the enrollment) attend classes for one or two semesters. Generally, the visiting students represent more than 12 foreign countries; the majority come from Western Europe and Japan.
A majority of the students enrolled in the Master’s and Ph.D. English-language graduate degree programs offered by the Faculty of Economics are from abroad, and complete their degree requirements in English.
Faculty of Economics Center for International Affairs (ECIA) provides services to all incoming exchange students who wish to study at the Faculty of Economics, Kasetsart University as non-degree students. If you are from one of our partner universities, please contact the International Office at your home university for the proper nomination process.
Visitors may start classes in August or January. Applications are due approximately three months prior to the start of the period of study. We warmly welcome and highly value the contributions of our foreign visiting students.

Some on-campus housing accommodations are available, and private residential rentals are readily available near campus (accessible by walking, taxi or bus). The campus is accessible by public transportation and is located near to a variety of retail shopping venues, banks, restaurants, nightlife, fitness, and health care facilities.
ORIENTATION and “BUDDY PROGRAM”
Orientation for exchange students normally occurs in the week prior to the first day of classes and will be organized by International Studies Center (ISC) of Kasetsart University. You may visit the ISC website here.
As host faculty, ECIA also offers a “Buddy Program” to pair Thai and visiting students. We offer a thorough orientation at the start of each semester, advise students on course selections, and do our utmost to ensure each student is welcomed.
INTERNSHIPS FOR VISITING STUDENTS [info]
We collaborate with local business partners to provide (selective) internship opportunities for our visiting students, while they study with us or after the academic studies are completed. These programs are selective and competitive – students will need to make an individual application.
