COLBS INSTITUTE is fully aware of the problems that Covid-19 is bringing to nations and potential students worldwide. In order to support potential candidates we have adopted the following initiative:

If you have been admitted into one of our academic programmes (undergraduate 3 years programme or 1 year postgraduate) and you are not 100% sure about enrolling definitively with us, we invite you to visit our campus in our "Induction Week". During this week we will allow you to stay FREE OF CHARGE at our campus in a shared* room. Also, we will reimbourse you 400.00 USD of air tickets of the cost of flying to Thailand! Note that this option is limited to 20 students only

How does it work?


You should confirm your participation in the "Induction Week" by email to (Just send us copy of your passport and copy of the "transfer deposit" of 250.00 USD so we can book a seat for you in the induction week. This deposit is made to reserve a seat for the week. Once you arrive to Chiang Mai and start the Induction Week the former deposit will be refunded to you by our Admissions Dept (either if you finally enroll or not). You can access here to our bank details to transfer the deposit. Important: this deposit will not be refundable in case the student cancels its participation, does not show up or does not obtain entry permit in Thailand. Entering into Thailand is full responsibility of the student, we don´t offer any support at this stage.

It is expected that you stay in Chiang Mai all week long. (5 days). In most cases students enter Thailand using a Tourist Visa ( ask your local Embassy).


After the Induction Week the student finally should decide if he-she wants to start the program with us on May 23rd, 2022. So your decision can be:

2.1. I WANT TO FOLLOW THE PROGRAMME. If your decision is positive and you wish to study with us and stay in Thailand, then you finally enroll in the program and we start preparing your visa permit to stay in the country from Thailand. In most cases students don´t have to leave the country, in other cases maybe they need to leave to prepare visa in their country of origin, in this case, the admission get defferred for the next semester.

If the student can obtain visa from within Thailand (depends on country and conditions) then its starts the program 1-2 weeks later. (Note that depending on your country and travel interests, Immigration Dept. can grant you different kinds of visa. Ex: multiple entry, ed-visa, tourist, etc, ). We expect you to stay in Thailand from May until Nov-December 2022 so we will support** you to obtain an Education or Tourist Visa. All tuition and accommodation payments from this date onwards must be cleared according to the stipulated schedules.

2.2. I DON´T WANT TO FOLLOW THE PROGRAMME. If you wish not to enroll with us, no problem, you just enjoyed a week FREE OF CHARGE in Chiang Mai. We hope you learned useful insights about Business Management and we wish you the best of luck. Thank you for coming!
