As a professor who has worked at a few thai universities I will give you the same advice as I give the students

once I have pointed out thai wages for graduates

and other ways to make money

why on earth would you do such a thing?

 

I can only guess you want a visa to stay here , if you are interested in education some very good free online courses which can give you a qualification for a price such as mit online, lots and lots of free online courses.

Meeting prerequisites, a student graduating from even a modest university can definitely go abroad for further study from any reasonably decent Thai university.

 

Likelihood of scholarship IMO is nill.

 

They are regarded more highly than Filipino degrees. Philippines has nothing.

 

In USA they will need TOEFL although some schools may accept IELTS.

I don't agree.

 

In professional qualifications the Phillipines has it all over Thailand.

 

Most Thai degrees are worth a rotten slice of durian.

 

Amyway if you fork up the money for such a scheme than they will merely come home and feed chickems..

 

Never saw a Thai with a professional degree in my home country in my life,.

 

I have seen South Koreans,Chinese,Malaysians and Indians..etc

 

But from the hub of the intellectual and cultural universe-Thailand,Myanmar,Laos and Cambodia nothing but prostitutes and bottle washers.

Thai Engineers are unemployable anywhere outside of Thailand.

 

As are Thai nurses and Thai medical technicians of all disciplines.

 

Yet if you are South Korean,from the Philippines,Malaysian or Indian you will get paid professional employment in my country.

In my last company we had a lot of Philippino employees, and I would suggest their degrees are about as well regarded as Thai universities. Whereas the Indians and Chinese were managers, software, engineering developers, the Philippino's worked at data entry and admins.
 

 

So you bag the educational standards of an entire nation and yet you can't correctly spell the name of those people - in your own native language.

 

Not a good look really.

As long as you are attending an accredited (recognized) establishment you shouldn't have any problems.

There are many Thai universities who have two-way exchange agreements (both bachelor and masters level) with very credible universities abroad, Germany, France, Sth. korea to name a few.

 

None of these credible universities from abroad would enter such agreements unless they were well satisfied with the 'quality' in the university abroad (in Thailand).

 

I've been on several committees from Thai unis tasked to meet the representatives (academic and admin.) from the unis. abroad (both here in Thailand and in the other country involved) and take their questions / discuss their stated quality requirements etc. 

 

Never once have the visiting committee members raised any doubts.

I worked in grad school admissions at a top 10 university in the U.S.  We accepted undergrad degrees from all over the world as long as they were from accredited institutions and had good GPAs. It's much easier to have a 4-5 year degreed if you want to go to school in the US. One of our faculty got his MBA at Chula and later went on to get his PHD in the US. 

 

If you want to go to school in the UK, the requirements are structurally different, but you can speak to overseas reps from schools to help navigate the process. Across the Pond is a good company to use to pursue higher ed in the UK.

 

So yes, degrees from Thai schools are recognized. Make sure to do the research and speak to alumni from that school to find out who went abroad after graduation to help you plan your path.  

 

Good luck.

None of the Companies that I worked for would have accepted Thai University or post graduate qualifications as comparable to those from western Nationally registered and authorised universities. The best that can be said is that they compare with online degrees from those, mainly US Universities, that advertise their "virtual institutions" as credible educational institutions. They may gain a person entry to a western first degree course, but even that is debatable for some subjects. In my airline work with an Asian carrier, we would not accept Thai registered and trained aircrew, only those holding western ATPL, frozen or active, usually together with a suitable rating, even got considered.

I take it that you are quoting cost of training?  If so, that is cheap in comparison to the UK and US where the training cost up to frozen ATPL with IR can top the equivalent of 4 million Baht.

My brother in law is a graduate of King Mongkut University of Technology with a degree in electrical engineering. He received futher traing from Intel in the states and has worked for semiconcuctor producers in both Taiwan and Singapore. He's one of the most genius men I've ever met. Kind of a nerd though.
