Win a free study abroad semester in Phuket plus a compensation of a flight ticket!
Have you ever dreamed of studying abroad on a paradise island where most people only go on holiday? How about being able to do it for free, with a compensation of a flight ticket covered as well?
Take a shot at a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience and participate to win a free semester in Phuket, Thailand!
Yes, you heard right. Although Phuket is a highly popular tourist destination and known for its mesmerizingly beautiful white beaches, it’s simultaneously home to one of the top 5 universities in Thailand, the Prince of Songkla University.
The international study abroad semesters at Prince of Songkla University are supremely popular among students from all over the world. You might think it’s no wonder, since who would not want to study abroad in a paradise?

As a study abroad destination, Phuket is indeed beyond comparison. Extremely friendly people, high standards of living and excellent connections to all over Southeast Asia make it an ideal destination, especially for someone studying abroad for the first time.
But the university itself has also received overwhelmingly positive feedback both for the quality of its courses and the way it takes care of its international students. You won’t be just sitting around in the classroom, but will get to participate in many free-time activities organized by the university from homestays to Clean the Beach events and Thai cooking classes. And then there’s Colin.

Prince of Songkla University has generously waived the winner’s tuition fee for one semester, taking place from August 6th to December 16th, 2018 (4 ½ months).
