Living in Thailand is remarkably cheap due to foreign currency exchanges and a modest standard of living. Bear in mind, however, that living costs vary wildly depending on whether you live close to the city centre. If you choose to live with other students or in a shared apartment your expenditure will again be cut. Food in Thailand is another inexpensive pleasure.
We all know that most of what we learn does not come from teachers. One of the most valuable sources of learning is your fellow students. A great source of learning that makes you a truly multi-cultural student and allows for developing your personal international network. That’s one of the biggest long-term benefits.
Thailand’s culture is rich and deep, and study abroad programs in Thailand with long-standing connections to communities provide the opportunity for you to interact with locals in ways that you wouldn’t be able to as a tourist. Integrate yourself into communities during your study abroad program and you’ll experience first-hand the way Thais live.
