when to apply
The Preparation Center for Languages and Mathematics (PC) offers TWO tracks of admissions for students:

  1. PC Regular Track (MUIC Entrance Examination)
    Eligible applicants: Thai and foreign nationals living in Thailand
  2. Applicants from this track are eligible to study at the Preparation Center (PC) only after taking the MUIC Entrance Examination and when the entrance results show that their English skills do not meet minimum requirements for entrance to MUIC but show potential for future studies at MUIC. These applicants will be eligible to sit for a PC interview and study in the PC program before gaining entrance to MUIC.

    Applicants CANNOT apply directly to study at PC via this track. However applicants who wish to study at PC for further study at other institutions, they are welcome to contact the PC office directly or at icpc@mahidol.ac.th.

    when to apply
    Applicants interested in the PC Regular Track MUST apply through an MUIC Entrance Examination.

    Eligible applicants: Overseas students living outside of Thailand
  4. International students who live abroad, have completed high school, and possess IELTS/TOEFL certification that does not meet the minimum requirements for entrance to MUIC can directly apply to PC via the PC International Track. This admission type aims at facilitating students from overseas who are pursuing a language preparatory course before furthering their studies at MUIC.
