Samester Abroad (Outbound)

The four-year Bachelor of Arts and Science in Integrated Innovation (BAScii) program offered by the Chulalongkorn School of Integrated Innovation (CSII) includes a mandatory outbound semester abroad for all students. The program offers a great opportunity for BAScii students to enhance their international life experience both academically and culturally. A semester or a year spent abroad will help to prepare our students to truly become global citizens of tomorrow.
