Webster University, Cha-am
Webster University Thailand is part of an international network that includes campuses in London, Leiden, Geneva, Vienna, and Shanghai as well as the home campus in St. Louis, Missouri. Webster's international faculty boasts both academic standing and professional expertise representing 15 different nations. The instructional style is American, the language of instruction is English, but classroom participation is cross-cultural.
Located a few hours south of Bangkok in the coastal town of Cha-am, Webster University Thailand is the newest addition to the Webster International Network of Campuses. The campus is conveniently located close to the Gulf of Thailand and the resort towns of Cha-am and Hua Hin. Regional sites include Angwor Wat, the Emerald Buddha and the Grand Palace.
A complete list of courses offered is available on-line.
The course equivalencies spreadsheets have been compiled from past approved Academic Plan forms. They show when the course was last approved and how it transferred back to La Crosse. You may notice that some classes satisfied several UWL options.
This list is not comprehensive nor does it take the place of meeting with your advisor for final approval! They are meant to be a guide of what courses may be appropriate for your studies abroad.

Depending on the country to which you're traveling, a visa may be required as well. Entry requirements vary from one country to another.
