Ideally if you can bring your school transcript, proof of English ability (eg an IELTS score), study plan, reference letters and portfolio if applicable, we can accelerate the process of your application. However, it is not necessary to have all this paperwork ready for the first meeting. You can just come to our office for the initial counselling and we will advise you on what and how best to prepare the application documents.

Institutions are keen to attract a wide range of students to study there, as this gives each and every student a broader education and introduces them to a variety of different cultures and ways of thinking.

BELOW IS AN EXAMPLE OF A PERSONAL STATEMENT
I am Visava Chobkol, a third-year bachelor student in the department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Burapha University.
My hometown is Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. I graduated in Science-Mathematics major with GPA of 4.00 from the Pinoonbunpend Demonstration School, Burapha University, Chonburi in 2006. I love problem solving and strategic planning. I therefore joined Chess club during the high school. I earned many chess trophies from various competitions. My favorite subjects are Mathematics and Physics.
I decided to go to Engineering School at Burapha University. I chose Mechanical Engineering because I realize that the technology always changes. Mechanical Engineering is important to all parts of our everyday lives and is everywhere you can imagine. It is a challenging subject that covers a wide range of fields such as machines, energy, manufacturing and processes. For past two years, I have enrolled various subjects including mathematics, engineering mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and mechanical design. Currently, my GPA is 4.00.
As a part of my Bachelor’s experience, I have served a position on Student committees of the Faculty of Engineering for two years. I have been part of Mechanical Engineering committees for one year. I have also led the Mechanical Engineering Club last year. I have served as a tutor in a course of Dynamics for two semesters. I have gained experiences to carry out my duties with high responsibility.
As part of lectures/courses in the Bachelor degree, it requires for all students to enroll the Mechanical Engineering Practice Training subject during summer time. Your company is well-known in the field. It would be a great opportunity for me to learn experiences from your qualified staffs in a great environment. I wish I have strong backgrounds and high responsibility to suit your qualifications. I am looking forward to have such an opportunity for the training in your company.
