FAQ: Frequently asked Questions
Q: IS THIS A FULLY ACCREDITED DEGREE?
It certainly is. Siam Technology College is fully accredited by the Royal Thai Ministry of Education. The Kingdom of Thailand is a full member of the United Nations since 1948. Therefore, all degrees accredited by the Royal Thai Ministry of Education are accepted worldwide and certainly allow for entry to graduate degree programs, if you want to further your studies with a Master degree.
Q: WHAT IS THE MINIMUM NUMBER OF CLASSES I NEED TO TAKE TO QUALIFY FOR AN EDUCATION VISA?
A: You need to take a minimum of 15 credits (five classes or some other combination of 15 credits) per semester to qualify for an Education visa. The semesters are the following dates:
- January - June is the first semester of the year. You need to take somewhere around 3-5 courses at least during this time and pay for the courses at the beginning of the semester in January if you need an ed visa. (5 courses is usually 15000 baht)
- August - December is the second semester. You need to take somewhere around 3-5 courses at least during this time and pay for the courses at the beginning of the semester in July. (5 courses is usually 15000 baht)
Q: WHAT ARE THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CLASSES I AM ABLE TO TAKE EACH SEMESTER?
A: The maximum number of credits you allowed to take per semester is 21. Generally each class is worth 3 credits, so by taking 7 of the usual in class face to face classes per semester you will reach 21 credits. If you take the maximum amount of credits each semester than in a given year it is possible to reach 42 credits, making it possible to finish your degree in 3 years.
Q: WHAT IF I MISS A DAY?
A: Our classes are intensive; each class is one semester of course work condensed into a 5 day course. Therefore, if you miss a day, you will lose a letter grade. For example, if your final mark for all completed work is a B+ and you missed one day that week, your final grade will be a C+. More than one day absent results in failing the class and having to retake it at a future time (you will also have to pay for this retake).
Q: IS THIS AN ONLINE PROGRAM?
A: No, this is a regular, face-to-face program that operates on the normal semester system.
Q: WHERE IS SIAM TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE? A: Siam Technology College is located at 46 Charan Sanitwong 10 Road Tha Phra, Bangkok Yai, Bangkok, 10600, THAILAND
Conveniently located to many bus routes (42, 57, 68, 80, 81, 91, 108, 146, 175, 189), access to the college will further expand once the Blue Line of the Mass Rapid Transit Train (MRT) opens in 2019, with a station (Charan Sanit Wong 13) directly adjacent to the campus.

A: Boys - Collared shirt (tie recommended), slacks, leather shoes, all in good repair. No shorts, sweats, torn jeans, t-shirts, or tennis shoes.
Girls - Smart Casual. No shorts, sweats, torn jeans, t-shirts, or tennis shoes.
