Cooperation in education, science, research and training is a central and significant aspect of the bilateral relationship between Thailand and Australia. Australia shares a bilateral relationship that is broad and deep.
Last year, 2017, marked the 65th anniversary of our diplomatic relations. The Australian Government is actively supporting Australian students to undertake part of their study in the Asia-Pacific region, including Thailand through mobility grants and scholarships under the New Colombo Plan, Endeavour Mobility Program, and related programs, so that they too might benefit from an overseas experience and gain a deeper understanding of Asian cultures.
In the Ambassador to Thailand’s forward remarks in the booklet he noted that he was very pleased therefore to introduce the second edition of Thailand study abroad guide to encourage Australian students to consider study options in Thailand. The first edition was published in 2012 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our diplomatic relations.
