A difficult question to answer and again depends on a student’s lifestyle. A basic salary in Thailand can be as low as 6-8,000 baht and people manage to live off this amount. However more realistically in Bangkok the cost of living is higher and will depend on how much you eat in nice restaurants and travel around in taxis. Your main expense will be accommodation as everything else from food and public transportation can be very cheap. Realistically anywhere between 15- 20,000 baht per month should be sufficient though.
International students are actually provided a course in Thai language as part of their studies.
