Please Note: Owing to the remote location and rigorous, physical activities on the program, TCS 2019 is not suitable for students with specific medical needs. This is due to that fact that there is less easy access to support facilities as it is in a rural area of Northern Thailand and 3 hours by road from the nearest hospital.
You will also be expected to fundraise for this week.
