juliaandthais4web“We have 13 students at Rochester Independent College and we send our best students who have all been awarded Thai Government Scholarships to RIC with the expectation that they will all be taught to the highest standard and be well looked after. Many of them go on to Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Imperial. Whenever we contact RIC they are very helpful, deal with any issues promptly and the students appreciate the excellent education they receive.”
