Scheduling your visit to Patana

Due to the rigorous nature of the International Baccalaureate curriculum offered to the students of Bangkok Patana, we cannot allow students to meet with university representatives during class time.

However, we are delighted to welcome university visitors during our morning break period (9:15am-9:35am) and during the lunch period (12:15pm-1:10pm). You will be located in our Senior Studies area, which experiences a lot of student traffic during both periods. We will also advertise your visit to all Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students. Patana students are very engaged in their university search and are excited to chat with visiting representatives!

Bangkok Patana is also happy to host evening sessions in our conference facilities for small groups or single universities when time and space allows.

All visiting representatives must show a photo ID for admission into the school at security. 

Please contact Kevin Keller to schedule your visit at kekl@patana.ac.th
