Q: Do I really need Diamond stamps in order to graduate?

A: All undergraduate students of Bangkok University, including BU International, are required to have 16 stamps signed by an authorized faculty member in their Student Passport prior to their graduation. Academic excellence, a healthy social life, and active participation in extracurricular activities work together in molding our students. Bangkok University wants to guarantee that its graduates possess a good balance of these important factors. The Student Passport (also called the Diamond booklet) is an official record of some of the student’s achievements during university, and should not be seen as added work for the student. Transfer students are likewise required to have 16 Diamond stamps, while exchange students from partner universities are required to have 5 stamps.
