+1... completely agree!Bloomaul wrote:Hi,
let me tell you first: I did an exchange semester in BKK, so I might be not that objective. There are two aspects you should think about:
First, academic standards. Hands down, Singapore is way better. You cant compare the reputation of NTU or NUS with Thai universities. I was at Thammasat, one of the best/or the best university in Thailand. If you want to polish your CV and study hard, go to Singapore.
Second, leisure. Bangkok - it cant get better. Bangkok is the perfect hub to travel Asia - Thailand itself, Lao, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam. All destinations can be easily reached via van or airplane. Compared to Singapore it is very cheap. Thais are extremly friendly and welcoming. No problem to integrate yourself in community or get contact to locals. Not to mention the nightlife
If you got any question, do not hestitate to ask
No matter what you choose, it will be a great time
I have to disagree on that. Rangsit campus is at Pathumthani. Max 50min with the van to Victory mounument (the van always uses the highway). And it costs you 20Baht (very cheap). Of course this sucks a bit, but its a good opportunity to take a nap - you will need itbeppi wrote: I also lived near Thammasat university in Thailand and can confirm that there is no social life for a foreigner anywhere near it, as it's is a bumpy one-hour-busride away from downtown Bangkok - if there are no jams (it also took me three hours on occasion).
Well, Reputation would have been the better word - sorryx9200 wrote:You said a bit more. It was about academic standards. Hard to tell anything about it if you never actually worked or at least study over there (NTU/NUS). Don't you think?
The problem is that for many many people what you wrote about the Thai students is what the whole SG education is about.
You can understand my confusion now.
