Exchange Student Programs

ESP at Chiang Mai University, Thailand

1 Outline of Chiang Mai University, Thailand
Chiang Mai University, one of Thailand's leading national universities, has over 15,000 students and comprises fifteen faculties. Chiang Mai is a central city in northern Thailand with a population of 200,000. There have been occasional exchanges of instructors between Shiga University and Chiang Mai University. Following the conclusion of academic exchange partnership agreement between SU and CMU in 1999, Exchange Student Program has also been launched.
2 About Courses Provided
Exchange students will be exempted from tuition fees charged for “task-oriented course”, “Thai language” and “Thai culture” provided at Faculty of Education. However, they will not be exempted from tuition fees charged for other courses or individual training. Such fees are charged by the hour.
3 Period
It is advisable to start your studies in the first semester of each year (in early June). Students on ESP can study for two semesters (February_June, July-November) maximum. Some students may start the program in the second semester (in late October) depending on the commencement date of scholarships.
4 Language Skills
Some courses are provided in English. English skills are necessary in daily lives until students learn to speak/understand some Thai.
5 Accommodation
Off-campus private housing or homestays
6 Living Expenses
Prices in Chiang Mai are considerably lower than in Japan. However, luxury products (e.g. Japanese food, electric appliances, etc.) are sold at a similar level as in Japan or even higher.
7 Security
Generally, Chiang Mai is in a safe area. However, walking alone in downtown at night should be avoided.

9 Other Remarks
In FY 2000 and FY2001, one Shiga University student each year studied at Chiang Mai University. In FY2003 and FY2004, one student each year studied at CMU with private funds. In some cases, students may join an intensive course of Thai language and culture provided at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University about one month prior to the commencement of the semester.
