Thailand Summer Programme

The University of Canterbury is pleased to announce that it is offering 12 International Internship opportunities to UC students to travel and stay in Bangkok, Thailand over this summer break (2016).

Students will travel to Bangkok on 11 January 2016 and stay till mid-February – a total of five weeks.

You will be based in Bangkok, on the Mahidol University campus. During your time there, you will be introduced to Thai language and customs, take tours of sites in Bangkok and beyond (some of which do not offer access to the general public) and make the acquaintance of our partner university’s students and staff. You will also undertake an internship in Bangkok.

There will be information sessions about this programme on Thursday, 10 September and Tuesday, 15 September at 4.00pm.
