About the project
This short course is a project initiated by Silpakorn University International Affairs department to welcome International students to study in 14 of our faculties for 10 days period throughout 2019-2020 academic year. Each faculty including Faculty of Music has been given 15 number of international students to join the program in which accommodation, meal, ground transportation, study and registration fee during the entire stay will be covered by our side.
