The SPD programme aims to close the gap between the classroom and the labour market by maintaining a close relationship with professionals engaged in the field of social policy. As a result, the SPD programme has several partnerships with various different organizations in Bangkok who have committed to hosting SPD students both as full-time and part-time interns.
TU 399 - Internship for regular SPD students TU 399 Professional internship is a mandatory component of the SPD programme for third-year regular students.
