    Reccomendations for University North Thailand

    Could someone that might know please give me (if there are any) the names of any university/universities that would provide an intelligent and hardworking kid with a degree (in any sensible field ) that might actually get them a quality job/career?

    I'd also like to know what sort of entrant requirements they would need.

    I guess anywhere within an hour or so drive/ride from Chiang Mai (southwest of it preferably - but anywhere ok)) would be great.

    Medicine/Modern Farming/Engineering

    Something useful, interesting, morally sound and hopefully modern/current.

    Thanks for any info.

    Not something I know a huge amount about but I would have thought Mae Jo would be the obvious choice for farming.

    Generally, CMU is probably going to be the best but some of the main universities have external campuses now (Thammasat has a branch in Lampang, for example) so I'm not too sure.

    ^ My father-in-law went there (a long time ago) and he did pretty well for himself.

    ^ Not quite within a hour's drive of CM, though. 90 minutes, OK but an hour is kind of pushing it.

    Cheers. Maybe a little too far - but will still look into it.

    This is Thailand - some things just aren't worth worrying about, as they possibly will never change. You just have to crack on with life as it is. I think the best solution is to focus on the best of what's available.

    Thai side of my family has a lot of land - I think it would be wise to get the younger members to become experts in the field of modern farming technologies. More and more people globally with less and less resources. Feeding people also must give you a good sense of worth I'd assume.

    It's a 14 hours round-trip from Chiang Mai to Khon Kaen. If he's going to do that on a daily basis he might as well commute to Massachusets, I hear they have quite a good University there.

    Are you going for the biggest idiot on TD award at the moment? Nothing you've posted in the last couple of weeks makes any sense whatsoever.

    I know this is nothing to do with teaching.I want to study at Ramkhamhaeng university and I need to know how to prove that my GCSE's and A-level are equivalent to U.S. grade 12.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Peace

    Thanks for that. Please don't think I'm taking the piss, but degree's are pieces of paper given out by businesses (on the whole). Do they seem intelligent and well educated to you? Do you see a lot of knowledge in them?

    Cheers.
