Student Exchange Program

This short-term student exchange program, which was initiated in 2007, is a collaborative effort between Mahidol University and Kyushu University of Japan in order to foster stronger relationships between their respective students and staff members.

Mahidol’s contribution is coordinated by (1)the Office of International Relations, which serves as a contact point for all correspondence, accommodation and transportation arrangements, (2) the Faculty of Liberal Arts, which provides lecturers for the Thai language course and introduction to Japanese language and culture, and (3) MUIC, which supervises all cultural activities, including a number of field trips.

This two-week exchange program serves 10-15 participants each time, once in August/September for Japanese students who visit Mahidol University and again in March-April for Thai students who travel to Kyushu University, with a focus on language and culture.
