If you are soon to be leaving school after 12 years of formal education, your mind will be focusing on a further education program, which will be your springboard to your career. Of course, there are many BA programs at colleges and universities across the country, and as none will be cheap, it is essential that you get the most out of the program you choose.
International BA Program
If you are living in Thailand, you are very fortunate to have a special 3-year BA program that includes a 12-month stint at a top UK university of your choosing, and the great thing about an international course (called เรียนหลักสูตรอินเตอร์ in Thai) that incorporates study in the UK is you get to develop your English language skills in such a way that would not be possible under normal circumstances.
The Importance of English Language Fluency
When you graduate with your Bachelor Degree and start to apply for jobs, your potential employers will all be looking for a high level of competency in the English language, and with you having spent a complete year living and studying in a top British university, your language skills will be superior to other non-native English speaking students, which will give you a big advantage when searching for a career.
Range of BA Courses
If you can find a Thai college that has an affiliation with the UK government, they would offer a 3-year BA program in the following topics:
- Business Management
- Digital Marketing
- Marketing Management
- Tourism & Hotel Management
- Accounting & Accounts Management
The above are just a few of the BA programs that would be available, and with a Google search, you can soon be talking to a leading college and they can give you all the information you need in order to make an informed decision.
Studying in The United Kingdom
There are several advantages to studying at a top UK university as part of the 3-year BA program, which include developing essential language abilities, plus learning in a project-based environment that mirrors real-life environments that you will face when you start working. The method of teaching in the UK is very student centered, which gives you opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and teamwork as you and your classmates work together on projects that are based on real-life issues that you will encounter when you commence your employment.
Sourcing a Suitable College
Using Google, it should not be difficult to source a college or university in Thailand that has an affiliation with the UK government that allows their students to study a 3-year BA program that involves a one-year study period at a top British university of your choosing. Once you have found the college’s website, you can find out all you need to know, then make an appointment to visit the institution, where you can talk to the professors and get a feel of the program.
Taking an international BA course in your chosen subject will bring you many benefits, not least the English language proficiency, and this will give you the edge over other Thai students who are also looking for the best career opportunities.
