    Studying in Thailand

    Wasn't sure where to put this so here we go...

    To make it brief & to the point..

    I want to finish my degree without going home. I completed my first year of a 'games development & ai' BA....I'm now considering finishing my BA, in a similar field, whilst in Bangkok studying part time. I would want to be able to transfer my credits...I want it completed in the shortest time possible & the cheapest way possible!!! (don't want much eh)

    I've been on google for a while & not come up with a lot of handy info. Can anybody here give me a better insight please.

    Thanks in advance =)

    Re: Studying in Thailand

    About a year ago I was looking for classes in English in the evening , All I could find was Assumption University, bit I didn't see anything in that kind of degree, my guess is anywhere that does provide it its in Thai.
    Have you looked into to doing it online, you'd have to pretend your in the States(if your American) because you'd have to pay through the nose for out of state tuition rates.

    Assumption (sorry typed a not so nice word about this place and then I remembered that we are not supposed to say bad things about schools because it is actually consider a school) to study at anyway... longdistance would be better

    Re: Studying in Thailand

    Well this is has been doing my head in for a while now & i've come to the conclusion that I would be better off going back & finishing what I started. As long as I'm not too late to proceed in this coming semester I'm pretty sure I'll be heading back within the next month or so.

    Re: Studying in Thailand

    transfer credits to another field, part time in BKK is only ABAC and it's so expensive is laughable.......distance is the way to go, www.rdi.com (LDMA is studying with this outfit) from the uk or www.londonuniversity.com from the uk are both excellent, the latter is the cheapest (believe it or not) but it's complete self study instead of on line. if you're not a merkin doing something from the US is IMHO a waste of time as any future employee would question why Fred from Basildon has a degree from Alabama when he's never been there.
    Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.

    that's http://www.rdi.co.uk

    Yep, they're a very good organisation, but are limited in terms of either computers or business programs. I'm 3 modules away from my entry proper to their affiliated BA final year in Business Management with the Univ of Sunderland. They do other courses with various other unis too. No complaints so far and very reasonable prices.

    I'll send you the price list over if you like....

    Having said that I've only got the price of my course.....

    Why not call them and ask them directly....they're pretty helpful people.
