Program details

This unique program allows students to gain two degrees through completing one program of study delivered entirely in English at the International College UTCC Bangkok campus. In the first part of the program, students undertake courses through UTCC and Goal Business Education. In the second part of the program, students undertake Newcastle courses taught at UTCC.

Upon satisfactory completion of all course requirements, students are awarded a degree from University of Newcastle and a degree from University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce.

The program can be completed entirely in Thailand. In addition, the program allows multiple pathways for students to study across borders. Students who would like to study overseas may elect to study at Newcastle campuses in Australia or Singapore, after completing at least one semester of study in Bangkok, and such students will receive full credit for UON courses.

Upon completion of the program, students will become part of three alumni networks:
