Assumption University, located in the metropolitan area of Bangkok, is constructed as a “University in a Park.” The main campus comprises 200 acres of a beautifully landscaped assembly of mixed architecture with influences from around the world surrounded by lush tropical gardens and trees.
Assumption University offers a true immersion experience as Thailand is at the opposite of every cultural dimension with the United States. Thailand is known as the 'land of smiles' and how welcoming the Thai people are to foreigners, which come from 75 different countries to study at Assumption University.
Assumption University was the first international university in Thailand and originated in 1969 as a business college. Assumption University is well-known throughout Southeast Asia for its business program, but offers exchange students a wide variety of course options in several areas of study, including Business Administration, Economics, Engineering, Science and Technology, Law, Biotechnology, Communication, Art, and Music.
This exchange is open to all majors, though Business and Communication majors are particularly encouraged to apply. Assumption University utilizes a similar academic system to the United States in which undergraduate students take 4-6 courses per semester for a total of 12-18 credits.

Housing is coordinated through Assumption University, where most international students live on campus. The University offers three main dormitories, King Solomon (for male students), Queen of Sheba (for female students), and King David (visitor hotel). The three 13-story dormitories form a U-shape embracing the basketball grounds and the middle pyramid. The grounds, with rows of seats all around it, is called the King’s court. Each room has a cable TV, a small refrigerator, a direct line telephone and a pair of connections for computer Internet access. These dorms offer fully furnished modern facilities with 24 hour reception and security, weekly room cleaning service, and high speed internet. For more information on accommodation, please refer to Assumption University's FAQ page here: Assumption University FAQ Page.
The Assumption University undergraduate campus is located thirty minutes from downtown Bangkok and twenty minutes from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK). The undergraduate campus offers just about everything; a mall, hotel, dormitories, a magnificent chapel, a museum, and much more. Multiple food, convenience, and service shops to support student needs surround the campus.
Student Life and Surroundings
Over 14 million people live within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region, which is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. Assumption University has a student body of about 20,000, including a fairly large complement of foreign students, taught by a high caliber international community of scholars.
There are many opportunities for students to get involved with campus programs, student clubs/organizations, festivals, and athletic organizations. The John Paul II Sports Center offers a full size basketball court, fitness room, sauna/steam room, and two Olympic-sized swimming pools available for recreational use.
Exchange programs are affordable study abroad options that allow students to pay UW-W tuition while studying abroad. As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W students may use their financial aid on this program. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are also available.
Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships
UW-W tuition, as well as the Global Experiences Application Fee and CISI international insurance, are billed to the student’s UW-W account. Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. living expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).
