The cost of your studies:

Tuition Fees, Costs, and Scholarships

All prices are equal for Thai citizens, permanent residents, and
international students. Only exception is the Online M.B.A. due to the
higher costs outside Thailand.

Please note:
To make it easier for you, all costs of study are exhibited as cost per semester. If you want to graduate earlier, however, you will register for more courses per semester, which certainly increases the cost of study per semester.

Cost of Living for International Students

Cost of living varies widely, according to your life style. In a metropolis like Bangkok, you can perform a luxurious life style as in central Manhattan, Zurich, London, or Tokyo. Alternatively, you can live as our Thai students do. We recommend this way for two reasons. Firstly, you will safe a lot of money. Secondly, and since culture may be defined as the end product of a society, you will understand Thai culture much better when you understand every day life. Our students are more than willing to share their experiences and knowledge with you to find the appropriate accommodation, food, and so on.

For more detailed information on the environment where you will live, please have a look at our Student Live in Thailand section of this Web site.

For international students, the following additional budget is suggested for studying in Bangkok:

Living allowance

150,000  THB / Year

Room and board (off campus)

180,000  THB / Year

Transportation expenses

18,000  THB / Year

Medical expenses

15,000  THB / Year

 

Just a legal disclaimer: Tuition fees are subject to change without further notice.
(They did not change, however, since IIS-RU was founded.)
