We are a dynamic office of 8 people on City Campus in Dr. Charoen Kanthawongs Building, 11th floor, and our task is multifold. As the name suggests, we are involved in international affairs that relate to the university.
We take care of the university's English correspondence and arrange academic collaboration agreements with other universities worldwide. We also organize guest programs for visitors to the university, which can involve pick up at the airport, meetings with executives and faculty, campus tours, city tours, and more.
For the community of foreign faculty members, our office does the employment, visa and work permit documents processing. This paperwork involves the Office of the Higher Education Commission, Department of Employment - Ministry of Labour, and the Immigration Bureau.
Since we are a bi-lingual (Thai-English) operating office we also have a special section that takes care of translation work, mainly translations of official forms and announcements, but also proofreading and editing of English texts and articles to be published by the university.
For BU graduates who decide to continue their studies abroad, or who want to apply for a job, we process and produce a letter of recommendation written by a faculty member who has known the student during his/her study at BU.
Our office also runs the BU Liaison Project that can provide temporary jobs for students who are interested in improving their English skills by helping us in receiving guests, or helping other organizations in Bangkok to run their conferences and seminars.
