Though scholarships are awarded to outstanding and needy students, they are also available to other disadvantaged Thai students.
Therefore, requests by foreign students for direct financial assistance are rarely considered.
Scholarship schemes are now being implemented for approved courses in accordance with the manpower requirements of the country. The aim of these schemes is to ensure the relevance (cost/investment) of university education to the economy, with the hope of minimising the rate of unemployment among university graduates.

In nearly every university, a student health service with resident medical officers is provided. Similarly, sports facilities and coaching by trained instructors are also available. Provisions are made for military training through the Territorial Defence Scheme. While studying, students are exempted from military service.
Within the higher education system, the first professional qualification is that of bachelor degree, which is obtained after four years of tertiary study. Five years of tertiary study are required for a bachelor's degree in the fields of architecture, painting, sculpture, graphic arts and pharmacy, whereas six years of study is required for medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. In some fields, an associate degree is available after the first three years of a bachelor course. In professions such as medical doctors and dentists, additional post-degree study is required before professional qualifications allowing the candidate to practise in his or her field are awarded.
Advanced studies of at least one but generally two years, combined with a thesis, leads to the award of a master's degree. A doctorate is awarded in some fields and requires an additional three years of study following a master's degree.
An advanced diploma or certificate may be obtained after two years of coursework. It is intended for students who already possess a degree or professional qualification.
