About Mahidol University
Mahidol University is the oldest institution for higher learning in Thailand. The relatively new International College is modern and forward thinking offering a dynamic, challenging and exciting experience for international students. The 520-acre campus is filled with natural beauty, landscaped gardens and lush tropical scenery. The relaxing semi-rural setting, within easy reach of central Bangkok, makes it an ideal setting for studying or working in tranquility, without losing out on the countless cultural, sightseeing and entertainment opportunities available in the city.

From the breathtaking beaches of the South, to the vast rice fields of the Central Plains and exotic wooded mountains of the North, Thailand is known for its varied natural features. For any student interested in social, cultural, scientific and artistic studies, Thailand is an ideal setting. The culture, a balance of ancient tradition and modern influences, is diverse and harmonious. Situated at a centuries old crossroad between India, China and Java, Thailand is a natural gateway not only to Southeast Asia, but also to the entire Pacific Rim. As a center for international business, Thailand is fascinating, energetic, and friendly and a gracious host to visiting international students.

"The only way in which I can describe both of these experiences is being in a state of complete consciousness of living fully in the moment and feeling so alive! I lived in the outskirts of Bangkok, which is a major travel hub in Asia I took full advantage of this and traveled all over Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia in my free time. Studying abroad in Brockport's programs has given me, 'a poor college student,' a chance to see parts of the world that I otherwise would not have imagined going to. I have been forever changed because of my experiences abroad and I only hope that others will take advantage of the amazing opportunities offered here at Brockport."
