Off Campus Assistance:
We will assist the exchange students to find apartments.
In preparation for participation in our University, it will be necessary for students to acquire a Thai visa to cover the time they expect to be in Thailand. This is of primary importance as Srinakharinwirot University is unable to assist in the process of obtaining the visa required while residing in Thailand. However Srinakharinwirot University will provide a letter of admission of presentation to immigration authorities.
