College Representatives, Welcome to Bangkok and ISB!
We’d love to have you visit ISB, and to help you in planning a visit to our campus, we have included a few items that we hope will make both your planning and your visit to Bangkok a bit easier.

ISB Program and Philosophy
ISB college counselors guide students through the research, selection and application process in finding colleges and universities that are considered “best fit”. ISB limits students to ten (10) applications maximum. We encourage students and parents to look beyond the rankings and choose schools which will provide the student with a positive academic experience while being appropriately challenged.
Scheduling your visit
ISB will host visits from representatives who work directly at an accredited college or university, and is not able to host agents or consultants. While we are unable to host summer program representative visits, we are happy to be sent program materials and information to share with our community on our summer school database.
For the 2017-18 school year, the best time to meet with ISB students is: 10:20-11:00 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; 10:55-11:35 on Tuesday and Thursday. One Tuesday each month, the visit time is 10:00-10:35 due to an Early Release Day. Early Release Days are marked on the calendar below. Please look at the Google Calendar below to find an available date and then complete the Google Form under the calendar to schedule your visit.
Unless otherwise stated, you can request an appointment to visit when other colleges are scheduled. We have typically scheduled multiple university visitors on the same day. We ask that you schedule, at minimum, one week in advance.

Brochures and Materials
In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, ISB no longer accepts and maintains a library of printed college and university materials, especially since much information is now available online (with the exception of some universities in Asia). If you have extra materials that you cannot take away with you, we’ll happily recycle them for you. We hope that you can help support us in this endeavor.
After your visit is scheduled:
More details about your visit will be sent after registering at the link above. By downloading the map of Bangkok schools above, you can see where ISB is located. Driving to ISB from downtown takes about 45 – 50 minutes on good traffic days.
