Reference was made to the Office of the Higher Education Commission’s DUO-Thailand Fellowship Program between Thai higher education institutions and higher education institutions in EU member states to promote student exchange. The Commission asked Thai higher education institutions to nominate qualified students according to the criteria for the participation in the program. Each institution could nominate no more than four pairs of students, one of which would be the real nominees while the remaining three would be kept on the waiting list, respectively. Each pair was to consist of one Thai student and one student having the citizenship of an EU member state.
