- Most of Thai professors are just plain bad. Why don't you tell me all about that time you studied in France and say nothing about, y'know, lecture and its material? Screaming at me like I'm 5? Badmouthing your colleagues in front of the entire class? One class that lasts 3 hours? Sure, let's see that ping-pong show in Patpong because you're teaching a class about feminism and that makes sense. When the course started, we were made sure to see that Dr Chanintira na Thalang had both British and Thai citizenship (as well as her Chanel purse, very very important), and her humble-bragging throughout the course. Really, people go to study so some pompous wanna-be British excuse for a professor would hold them down. Studying? Empowerment? Nah. Why would you want to do well in your university studies? If people like this were in charge of the whole program and administration, it's clear why it's so bad. These people care more about their ego and pomposity than actually imparting knowledge on other students. - Most of Thai professors are just plain bad.

horrible experience. courses are taught by nasty people. group work with thai students is a nightmare because they try to obstruct you. i've had just one good thai teacher and two foreign good teachers. the rest don't know how to teach so they make simple assignments into these seeimngly deep and profound hard tests to cover up how little they know. my worst class was by deecha tangseefa where he handed out 25 pages long syllabus and used complex words to show off how "smart" (pretentious) he is. no good teacher explains takes 20 pages to explain something if they can do it in 2. no time to travel because ATTENDANCE matters and taking only ONE class is 3 hours of fucking stupidity per day.

i had horrible lecturers and unprofessional staff waiting to undermine me and other exchange students. it's really bad to study with rich students because they expect everything to be handed down to them bc their dad is a big fish of a big name company, and they are some of the most stupid people you'll ever meet. and that's the kind of people you'll see GET AHEAD of you. it doesn't sound bad but you'll grow to hate THAT PART more than anything else. my recommendation is to skip this BS and either go for a FUN university or a university where you can at least immerse yourself in good studies.

Thai students are generally more interested in bragging and talking about their parents' money. They are not your friends-to-be. Admin is pretty much horrible, sneaky, lazy, unprofessional, and backstabbing. AVOID most Thai professors. They are either half-assing it or overcompensating for their lack of education and trying WAY TOO HARD (I'm looking at you Deecha Tangseefa) which will suck the life out of your exchange.

ABOUT
Thammasat is the second oldest university in Thailand. Established by the Thammasat University Act in 1933, it was inaugurated on June 27, 1934 with an objective of generating the learning of law and politics. The University was then named "Thammasat Lae Karn Muang" meaning literally, "The University of Moral Science and Politics". In 1952 the name was shortened to Thammasat University.
