P2A Thailand Summer Programme

Overview

This programme is run by the College of Human and Health Sciences - students are selected to participate by the College.

Last year our students visited Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. This year we will have a choice of 3 routes to choose from:

Thailand-Cambodia-Vietnam

Thailand-Malaysia-Singapore (one day)

Thailand-Malaysia-Indonesia

The cost of the programme is approximately £900 for the two weeks, including internal travel, accommodation and some meals. Students will need to have additional funds for return flights to Bangkok (approx. £700), tourist visa costs if applicable, and personal expenses. Students will also need to budget for personal expenses, including some meals, and entry visas (depending on the route selected). 

In addition to the Global Opportunities Bursary, the College of Human and Health Sciences will also be offering 15 International Mobility Fellowships of £600 to students applying to take part in the P2A Summer Programme. Allocation of funds will be determined based on successful completion of the application criteria.

The tour is expected to take place between the last 2 weeks of July and first 2 weeks of August - more details to be confirmed in due course.
