Thai may be combined with another Asian language, or with a non'language discipline. In addition, Thai may be combined with French; in this combination the European language portion of the degree is taught at University College London, to which initial applications should be directed. The general pattern is that the two'subject degrees are taken over four years, with the third year being spent on a programme of study in Thailand. However, students taking Thai and French spend their third year in France. There are also three'year versions of the degrees in Thai and a discipline which do not involve a year abroad.
