International Educational Programme

International Education Programme (IEP)

The International Education Programme (IEP) is a specially designed curriculum for students to take part in academic, cultural and professional activities in key destination countries abroad. The IEP includes in-class instruction, educational trips to local universities as well as site visits to professional and community establishments. The Asia Centre aims to provide students with a holistic overview of the world and to better prepare them for global citizenship.

connection to Asia and the rest of the world. Located in the heart of Thailand, Bangkok is one of Asia’s most popular cities, with deep historical, economic and political significance. A truly global city, Bangkok hosts a variety of multinational companies, United Nations agencies as well as international and nonprofit organisations. Bangkok is also fast becoming a regional educational hub and is home to some of Thailand’s foremost tertiary institutions such as Bangkok University, Chulalongkorn University, Mahidol University and Thammasat University. Drawing on the diversity and opportunities that this capital city presents, IEP Bangkok connects students to these networks through its various programmes.

Programme Structure

14886183_10202859479245107_1525629335_nIEP offers specialised courses within a suite of programmes on Asian culture and international studies, business and entrepreneurship, development and the nonprofit sector, media and communications and others. Individual courses within the programmes can be designed to meet the specific needs of our clients. Courses can be structured as credit-bearing courses to meet the transferability of credit and the curriculum requirements of students’ home institutions. Specialised courses can also be run as non-credit bearing courses. Each programme typically can run for between 1 to 4 weeks. Courses are run on-demand.

IEP employs a mixture of lecture, discussion and practical application, facilitated by noted academics and leading practitioners. Most of the instruction and advising will take place on-site at the Asia Centre’s facilities. This will be complemented by guest lectures at selected Bangkok-based universities, professional visits and experiential learning trips. Students will be given the opportunity to apply the knowledge they gain through practical exercises, group work and assessments.

Teaching Materials

Asia Centre will also provide e-learning material in the form of preparatory readings and notes, to give students an introduction and background to the topics that will be covered. We will also provide a supplementary reading list for students who wish to do some independent study on the topics covered in the course outline. The remaining course material such as copies of teaching presentations, handouts and worksheets will be given out at the start of the course. Students will be encouraged to take their own notes and to actively engage in class discussions and activities.
