‌The first students from Thailand arrived in 1910 to study Engineering and Naval Architecture. Since then many Thai students have come to the University and studied a range of subjects including Engineering, Science and Medicine. We currently have over 100 students from Thailand and are looking forward to welcoming many more. Popular courses include Politics, International Law, Finance, Biomedical Sciences and Aerospace Engineering.
