Tuition & Fees

You want what is best for your child. As you consider your choices among Thailand’s many international schools, you will encounter many excellent options that will help them learn and grow. But we believe we can offer something different. As one of the few not-for-profit international schools in Bangkok, one strongly committed to our mission, values and vision, we offer a the opportunity to be a part of a diverse community where you and your children can thrive and grow together.


What Makes NIST Different?

NIST - A Not-for-Profit International School

We are a not-for-profit.

As a not-for-profit foundation school overseen by a parent board, we strive to maintain fiscal responsibility, and all tuition income is directly reinvested into the school to benefit our students and the wider community. Our finances and operations are overseen by the board, and made transparent made our annual general meeting and reports. We strive to accommodate as many students as possible while being non-selective, and our fees are commensurate to the world-class learning we offer to students.

NIST - All-Inclusive Fees

Our fees are all-inclusive.

Students at NIST benefit from far more than classroom instruction. Our tuition fee includes all core off-campus learning trips such as our extended Action Weeks, technology such as individual MacBook Air devices for secondary students, English as an additional language (EAL) instruction for students who require it, and a wide range of learning resources and support services. Simply put, we believe every child deserves the best possible learning opportunities within our core programmes.

NIST - Investing in the Future

We invest in the future.

Our focus is not solely on the present. We recognize that the world continues to change at an ever-increasing pace, and that our children will face many unique challenges as they grow to adulthood. Schools must continue to mature as well, shifting away from a single-minded focus on university and career preparation. We embrace a balanced approach that also carefully considers the development of skills and attributes in a diverse community, empowering every child to flourish and positively impact others.

2021-2022 Academic Year Tuition Fee Structure

On the 12 August 2021 the Chair of the NIST Executive School Board announced a THB 40,000 tuition credit for all enrolled fee paying students in recognition of the challenging circumstances caused by COVID-19, including a potentially disruptive year that may have repeated periods of off-campus learning. The credit will be applied as a credit to the semester 2 tuition fees. Students who enroll during the academic year will receive this credit on a pro-rated basis in line with our late entry policy (see below).

    The IB Philosophy

    The International Baccalaureate (IB) does not merely promote a curriculum, but rather a mission to transform the world through education.


    Our community has cultivated a well-deserved reputation for excellence in academics over the past two decades. Being the first full International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Thailand and a frequent early adopter of programme developments, NIST enjoys an unparalleled relationship with the IB, remaining at the forefront of progressive, research-based teaching and learning.
