The UK is one of the most popular places for Thai students to attend university. A recent University Fair, run by SIUK in Bangkok, showcased universities and colleges that are hoping to attract students from Thailand and the region. The SI-UK team has offices in seven countries. One of the newest is in Bangkok where the group provides free independent advice and support to international students applying to UK universities. With a 98 per success rate they are one of the most respected advisory firms in the world and a consultation here will help a student and his or her parents decide on the right university to apply to, how to fill in the application form and even how to get a student loan. Around 6,500 Thai students apply to study in a UK university each year and all in all about 600,000 international students annually set their sights on a degree or diploma in the United Kingdom.
