Press release november 7, 2007 Education

Meet us in Oslo on November 17 - 18

As educational experiences become more and more globally dispersed, Scandinavian students are invited to consider one unique and particularly appealing educational opportunity not to be missed: Thailand campus of Webster University. Webster was founded in 1915 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA and is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission on Institutions of Higher Education in the USA. It also has a worldwide enrollment of over 20,000 students from over 130 countries and has graduate locations in 17 US states and six international campuses located in London, United Kingdom; Vienna, Austria; Geneva, Switzerland; Leiden, The Netherlands; Shanghai, China; Bangkok and Hua Hin, Thailand.

The Thailand campus was founded in 1999 and is located 185 km south of Bangkok near the beach-town of Hua Hin. Currently, Webster University Thailand is home to students from 34 countries offering to them five Masters Degree programs (both in Hua Hin and in Bangkok) and nine Bachelor Degree programs (in Hua Hin only) in areas of Business Administration, Media Communications, Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations, Psychology and International Relations. Webster is distinguished by encouraging and fostering students' intellectual, emotional and social growth.  Emphasis is placed on making learning more exciting and relevant to real-world situations.  The intimate (small-class size) nature of Webster enables students to enjoy the personal attention which is the hallmark of a rewarding and productive educational experience. In small classes, professors help Webster's diverse student body to prepare today for the global challenges of tomorrow.

An international university for a truly international era, Webster prides itself on combining the vitality of a personalized American education with the best international opportunities of a multi-campus university. Students may complete their degree in Thailand or may transfer to other Webster campuses during their studies but regardless of the campus, all students receive an American accredited degree issued from the St. Louis home campus which is also recognized in Thailand by the Ministry of University Affairs. Webster University Thailand also welcomes Study Abroad students to Thailand from all over the world.

In summary, Webster University Thailand provides students from Scandinavia with:

  • American fully-accredited globally recognized degrees. It is one of a few American universities outside of the US and Europe and the only one in S.E. Asia.
  • lower level of costs. The cost of studying at Webster University Thailand is about 60% less than studying in the US for an international student. Living expenses are low in Thailand as well.
  • well established university with over 25 years of experience in founding and operating international campuses.
  • opportunity for students to complete a single degree at various sites in the world.
  • exquisite tropical location and unforgettable culinary and cultural experiences
