The Social Policy and Development (SPD) programme is an international BA programme that focuses on excellence in teaching and research on social welfare development. The programme covers economic, political, social and environmental aspects. You are most welcome to be a part of social change with us
The SPD programme is open to ambitious and driven Thai and international students. The exchange programme guarantees exceptional academic and extra-curriculum experiences in the host universities through the strong network of partnerships with the SPD programme itself and with Thammasat University. Our international students come from countries such as Bhutan, Cambodia, China, France, Germany, Myanmar, Netherlands, Japan, Sweden, and USA.
A two-month internship aims to close the gap between the classroom and the labor market by maintaining a close relationship with professionals engaged in the field of social policy and development. The organizations that have previously hosted our students as interns are, for example, ASEAN Foundation, British Council, Southeast Asia Ministers of Education Organization and Ministry of Social Development and Human Security.
SPD provides partial scholarship up to 50% for foreign students from developing countries. Candidates can also seek scholarship opportunities from other organizations. Examples of these kinds of organizations include Thailand International Cooperation Agency, Child’s Dream, Prospect Burma and Cambodian Children’s Fund. Some ‘Emergency Grant’ are provided to students in emergency situations.
