Converting Thai credits

Earning credits while studying abroad in Thailand

At Thai universities, completed studies and grades are measured in credits. The courses held at our Thai partner universities are mostly worth 3 or 4 Thai credits per course.

One credit equals 15 hours of lectures. One completed course most often converts to 5 ECTS credits or 3 US credits.

When considering the overall workload, students at our partner universities in Thailand should also remember to consider independent studies, exercises, group works, business visits, preparing for quizzes and exams and the quizzes and exams themselves into account. Local students generally complete 5 – 6 courses per semester.
