Ltd.; McDucation - Study in Scotland; OEC – Global Education; Swiss Education Group; The Dean Inter-Education Consulting and The British Council.

These include advisory and consultancy services, travel and accommodation assistance and financial planning advice to students studying in favourite-choice education countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Switzerland, China, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.”

In addition, HSBC has produced a ‘Studying Overseas Guidebook’ that contains useful information and tips for studying abroad, including journey planning, financial assistance and useful contact numbers and addresses of overseas Thai embassies and consulates. The guidebook will be distributed to new HSBC Premier customers and visitors to the 12 partner educational organisations.
