** Entry as an undergraduate to study for a bachelor's degree at a UK university is usually dependent upon having studied in the British system. It may, therefore, be necessary for Thai students to do a 1 year Foundation Course first. Alternatively, students who have studied 1 year at a good Thai university can usually transfer to the 1st year of a UK university.
