BU Liaison Project

         With the English language having become the major language in international communication, Bangkok University wants its students to have practical opportunities to develop their English skills. There is now a project that provides hands-on learning called the BU Liaison Project.

What does BU Liaison Project involve?

         Throughout the year, Bangkok University receives many delegations from various institutions in the world. International Affairs Office takes care of the Guest Program that provides foreign delegations with assistance when they have meetings here at the university, and when they are interested in seeing more of the Thai culture.

         Since 2002, International Affairs Office gives students the opportunity to participate in this guest program. As a student you have the opportunity to develop your English language and hospitality skills and at the same time you are of much help to the university. Such experience can be added to your list of extra-curricular activities and will stand out on your resume.

                

         Foreign delegations are met at the airport and taken to their accommodation arranged by the university. They are guided to the meetings they have with BU Executives, campus tours are given, and sometimes they are taken on a sightseeing tour in and around Bangkok. IAO also looks for opportunities where students can work with other organizations that hold international seminars and conferences in and around Bangkok. At such seminars and conferences, you can help in the practical organization which involves interaction with foreign delegates as well.

Q & A

What does liaison mean?

We have called this program for students the BU Liaison Project. The word liaison means cooperation and exchange of information between two organizations. These two organizations are Bangkok University and the foreign delegates, guests, clients, or, the institutions that organize seminars and conferences. A liaison represents Bangkok University and collaborates with other persons and groups.

Are liaisons paid for their work?

Your participation in the liaison project is not financially rewarded, although other organizations might offer a modest sum of payment. We would like you to see this kind of work as a service during which you can gain valuable experience that will be of benefit for your future career.

What do I need to do?

If you are a Thai student with a GPA not lower than 2.50 and have already good English language skills but like to develop yourself more in conversation with foreigners, then you are welcome to apply this project. The applicants can download the application form from BUIAO website or send a request to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We will also need to attach a copy of your current class schedule, an unofficial transcript and a photo. You will be invited to an interview and finally placed on our stand-by liaisons list. Whenever there is a seminar, conference or guest program that requires more people, you will be contacted and asked to participate.

What about project work during study time?

We will not ask you to work for us during your class hours, although in urgent situations exceptions can be made for which you will receive a letter of absence request for your teacher.

How do I prepare myself for the project work?

Mostly, foreign delegates want to know about the study programs offered at Bangkok University. They also may ask about BU's history. Questions are also asked about the jeux de Taxi jeux de Camion jeux de Parking jeux de Moto Thai culture, the meaning of special festivals and ceremonies. You need to become knowledgeable in this regard and able to explain simply and clearly. In the working world, to be on time is important and we ask you to be punctual. We also ask you to wear the university's uniform because you represent Bangkok University during your liaison work.

This is a letter issued by Bangkok University that you will need when applying for admission into an international study program at another university, in Thailand or abroad.

International Affairs Office (IAO) provides the form to apply for a letter of recommendation, and takes care of the processing of the letter of recommendation. At the bottom of this page you will find the form to apply for a recommendation letter. You can print out this form, or obtain the form at Records Division on both campuses or International Affairs Office at City Campus. Either way, you will need to return the completed form to us together with the required documents.

What are the required documents?

For the processing of your letter of recommendation, you will need to bring:

  • The completed application form
  • One original copy of either the official or unofficial transcript for each recommender.
  • Receipt of your fee payment to the Financial Office: 30 Baht for each requested letter of recommendation.
