Study In Thailand! Discover the Land of Smiles.
Experience Thailand’s charming natural beauty, fascinating history, unique culture and welcoming people during your exchange program to the heart of Southeast Asia. In just a few short months, you could find yourself living the life of a WEP exchange student as you study in Thailand!
Thailand’s only official language, Thai, is spoken by almost 100 per cent of the population. It is a fascinating monosyllabic and tonal language and the pride of the Thai people. In fact, on 29 July each year, the population celebrates National Thai Language Day with several activities, such as discussions, special lectures, exhibitions, and contests, being organised each year. Thailand enjoys a high level of literacy and education is compulsory up to year nine.
Last but not least, discover Thailand’s internationally renowned cuisine and regional specialities often described as a rich, harmonious fusion of centuries-old Eastern and Western influences. Whether you’re in the mood for Tom Yam Goong, Pad Thai, Kao Pad or Som Tam, you can be sure that Thai food will be full of flavour and substance! Often described as fresh and fragrant, it is the contrast between sweet, sour, hot and salty flavours that give Thai food it’s distinct and interesting taste.

Most Thai schools have two semesters; May - early October and November - late February. All students must be at school before 8am, in time to sing the national anthem and watch the raising of the Thai flag.
Although the schooling system is very similar to school here in Australia, there are several fascinating cultural differences that make going to school in Thailand a unique experience! Students, for instance, do not wear shoes in school buildings!
Thai (sometime referred to as Siamese) is the official language of Thailand and spoken by over 20 million people. The Thai language has five tones: high, mid, low, rising and falling. Each of these tones change the meaning of the word being spoken. Many English speakers who haven't had experience with tonal languages, can find identifying these tones to be a difficult task. This being said, English is taught in schools from grade 5 as a second language, and many people in Thailand can speak conversational English.
Generally speaking, most of Thailand experiences a hot and humid climate year-round. While the seasons are commonly broken down to the hot, cold and rainy seasons, the temperature remains relatively hot throughout all three.
Depending on daylight saving, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane are between two to three hours ahead of Thailand.
