Online Education Resources

There are many resources online for students hoping to continue their studies while in Thailand. Unfortunately, many of the resources that BASRAN knows about are in English and require high English literacy. If you know of any educational resources in other languages commonly spoken by refugees in Thailand, please share in the comments below.

  1. For refugees and asylum seekers wanting to continue higher education online, they can register for free to Kiron Open Higher Education. The online courses at Kiron are in English, and there are also English language-learning tools provided. At this time, Kiron itself does not offer full bachelors degrees; however, it is working towards offering this and partners with other universities worldwide to complement its course offerings.
