I liked the way all classes were structured, that we had the group task as well as individual, so every student could improve his/her skill as a team member and foster self-discipline for personal tasks. Big thanks to all lecturers who were very supportive of us during the whole semester!


For me, the main advantage of studying at AIHM were the lecturers. They are truly passionate about their disciplines and sincerely ready to help every student. Classes are conducted in small groups, so sufficient attention is paid to all students.


I like all the teachers because they always support and encourage me – when I have a problem, they are always there to help. I like my classmates as they always help each other and explain things that I don’t understand. Honestly, on the first day of the semester, I put a lot of pressure on and challenged myself because this was my first time learning in English only, without Thai. In the beginning, it took time to adjust, but as I continued to study, I felt that I began to adapt to this learning system and felt very fond of what I learned because it was to develop myself to be more efficient. I thought at the beginning the assignments were very difficult, but because of the teachers and friends helping me, it made the tasks seem easier whilst still challenging.


There were many moments in those five months that I enjoyed. My favourite, most memorable, and the thing that I was impressed with the most in the classes would be the lecturers. All of the lecturers are very inspiring, motivated, and passionate about the subjects they teach, which truly encourages me to try harder in the upcoming semester. Another thing I enjoyed about the first semester was that all of the classmates were very friendly and helpful. They always helped me and inspired me to work harder in and out of class.
