USAC Thailand Info Session ( spring 2022, summer 2022, or fall 2022 options available)

Thailand is strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia and though relatively small, it is an important center of the region.

The saying that Thailand is the “land of smiles” is still true, especially in the rural areas where traditional agrarian lifestyles survive. While eastern and southern Thailand is famous for its seaside resorts, the north and west are well known for its peaceful mountains and hill-tribe treks. Thailand is a tourist gateway and the friendliness of Thai people makes travel in Thailand and the surrounding region easy.

Learn about programs in Chiang Mai, where classes include economics, philosophy, politics, and religion, and Koh Kaen, where you can study health, wellness, and culture in the heart of northeastern Thailand, rich in natural beauty with civilizations and customs dating back to pre-historic times.

When: Apr 8, 2021 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Please watch the Planning For Study Abroad At Hunter College informational video below in place of a Study Abroad 101 Info Session. Study Abroad 101 is a presentation designed to give you an overview of studying abroad through Hunter College. It is intended to help students set goals for study abroad, consider the various program types, understand the financial resources, and get started on an application.  Applications to study abroad or Advising appointments should not be started until you have attended a 101 session!

After attending a Study Abroad 101 session, students are also encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to discuss academic requirements and to identify potential classes or subjects that they will be able to take while abroad.


Education Abroad staff and ambassadors facilitate live and in-person Study Abroad 101 presentations. Our Ambassadors are Hunter study abroad returnees who have enjoyed their experiences so much that they volunteer their time to advise other students on education abroad opportunities at Hunter. Each ambassador can explain program options, give an overview of the study abroad process, as well as provide information about their experience abroad.

Sessions typically last about 30-40 minutes.
