You must be currently enrolled at your institution. To apply as an exchange student, your home institution must have a reciprocal Exchange agreement with either CMMU or Mahidol University and be nominated by your home university. You should meet the requirements in your home university for the student exchange program.
If your home institution does not have a reciprocal Exchange agreement with CMMU and Mahidol University, students have to apply as a visiting international student that means a self-financed student. Students should be currently studying in a similar area to the study programs of CMMU.
Both exchange and visiting students must provide recent one of the following evidence of English language proficiency, TOEFL or IELTS, for application. If you have applied for the tests and awaited for the results during the application period, a certification of English language proficiency from your home institution can be used for replacement.
We will send an acceptance letter and a certification letter for visa application to your home university. Pre-arrival information and the Exchange Student Guidebook will be sent to students later.
As full-time students, you can register up to 4 courses or 12 credits per semester. An announcement of courses offered in a semester will be posted on the CMMU Registration website before the pre-registration period of that semesters start, so you can make a change of courses again by the first week of that semester.
Course syllabi of courses are available on request only.
A number of courses for registration depends on the credit transfer requirement of your home institution. Please note that 1 course = 36 hours = 3 Thai credits = approx. 5 ECTS.
The orientation program is held at the beginning of each semester for new international students. During the program you will meet new starters from different universities as well as current CMMU students and staff who will be available to help and advise you. The program aims to cover practical details for living in Thailand and studying at CMMU, so that you are ready to begin your studies here with confidence and with many new friends and contacts. We strongly recommend students to attend all activities and events.
Exchange students will be exempted from tuition fee payment to CMMU. For visiting international students, you are required to pay course registration at 32,000 Baht per course, and no other fee to be paid. An invoice will be given to students after the registration period ends.

For coming to Thailand to study for one or two semesters, students will be granted a Non-Immigrant Visa 'ED' by a Royal Thai Embassy in your country.
In general, visa application must be made in person. However, in some countries, Royal Thai Embassies and Royal Thai Consulate-General may also accept application submitted through representatives, authorized travel agencies or by post.

There are two categories of visa granted by a Royal Thai Embassy or Royal Thai Consulate-General for entry to the Kingdom of Thailand: three months for a single entry and 1 year for multiple entries. These are priced differently; the longer stay is the more expensive. No matter types of visa, students will be required further extension after 90 days of your arrival in Thailand.
Students must extend the visa no later than 3 months after your arrival. The visa should be extended at least 15 days in advance. If you ignore the extension, you will pay 500 Baht per day. To extend the visa, you need an official letter for visa extension from CMMU, so please contact the International Relations Office for further arrangements.
