5 Tips for Raffles Online Virtual Open House

Visiting the colleges in which you’re interested is an important part of deciding which one is best for you. Whether because you’re in the middle of a pandemic or you live in another country, doing so online can be very beneficial. Here are some suggestions for making the most of your virtual visiting day.

To begin, you can register for Online Virtual Open House, an online information session scheduled for Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 1pm (Bangkok Time).

01 Visit our website for further information.

Knowing the basics of the college beforehand will enable you to make more high-level inquiries about things that aren’t readily apparent on the website. Please take a look around our site. Examine the admissions page for information on the application process, deadlines, tuition, and other requirements.

02 Take a look at our social networks.

You can get real-time information about us by looking at our social media profiles. You can hear about future events, see the latest news, and watch videos featuring interviews with faculty, staff, and students. The following are links to our Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube accounts.

03 Make a list of questions you want to ask.

While many of the basics will be covered during your virtual information session, you might want to gather more detailed information by performing some research. You may start with academics. Find out what programs are available. Then, check out what it’s like to be on campus. What is the campus’ location? Once you’ve mastered these basics, you’ll be ready to ask more detailed questions during the Q&A section of your virtual information session.

04 Speak with a lecturer in your chosen field or major.

On the day of the session, we will have four speakers, including an Academic Lead, a Programme Director for Fashion Design, a Programme Director for Business, and a Fashion Design Lecturer, as well as a team of educational consultants available to assist you via the chat box.

05 Consider why you would attend Raffles at the end of your virtual tour.

It is really fine to be upset that you won’t be able to attend an actual college right now because you’re living abroad. Parts of that experience can’t be recreated. Whether virtual or not, this process is still yours. It’s a good time to reflect on who you are and where you’d thrive if you could live anyplace, and

it’s also a good time to prioritize your needs. Make sure it’s comfortable for you, and remember that we’re here to help. If you have any queries, contact our educational consultants, and sign up for Raffles’ Weekly Bulletin.

Newly Elected Bangkok Governor Wins a Landslide Victory

Chadchart Sittipunt has won the election for Bangkok governor, awaiting an official announcement from the Election Commission. Out of 2.6 million ballots counted, Mr. Chadchart received 1,386,215 votes, compared to Mr. Suchatvee’s 254,341 votes and Wiroj Lakkhanaadisorn’s 253,851.

On Sunday, 60.73 percent of the 4.4 million eligible voters cast ballots. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., voters were polled for nine hours.

“If I have a chance to become Bangkok governor, if the Election Commission officially announces it, I’m ready to be governor for everyone”, Chadchart stated in a speech outside his central Bangkok campaign headquarters on Sunday night.


Former transport minister, engineer, and university lecturer, the 55-year-old politician has spent the last two years preparing for this election.

Chadchart was backed by a network of over 10,000 volunteers, scholars, and experts from 50 Bangkok districts during his campaign. They have been involved in almost 200 policy ideas.

In addition to electing a new governor, Bangkok residents also voted for 50 local members to lead the Bangkok Metropolitan Council.

The opposition Pheu Thai Party gained 19 local seats, followed by the Move Forward Party with 14 seats and the Democrat Party with nine seats.
