Siraprapa is Thai national who has lived and worked in Lao PDR since 2013 after graduating with her Postgraduate degree in Management and Marketing from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. She has more than 10 years experience of working and representing English Language schools, boarding schools and universities from the UK.
In 2014, Siraprapa co-founded Oxford Education, the first professional UK-orientated education agency in Lao PDR which worked closely with the British Embassy in Vientiane to promote UK education.
In early 2018, Siraprapa then set up the British Education Centre (BEC). BEC is a Lao company that provides advice and support for Lao students looking to study overseas. While representing more than 200 schools, colleges and universities from the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, BEC is especially strongly affiliated with the UK. Her years of experience in the education industry working with Lao students has given her a deep understanding of the needs of individual students as well as the expectation of parents. Since BEC has been in operation, they have helped hundreds of Lao students successfully apply to UK universities.
Through BEC, Siraprapa has been a champion of promoting UK education in Laos, and supporting Lao students to apply, and in many cases obtain scholarships, to fulfill their educational dreams. In 2018 and 2019, Siraprapa has held UK Application Days, facilitating UK university representatives and potential Lao students to meet, learn about education opportunities and application requirements. In 2021, she organised the Olympiad Scholarship with the Oxford Sixth Form College, a leading sixth-form college in the UK, to offer the chance for Lao students to secure full and partial scholarships.
In addition to BEC, Siraprapa also established a student accommodation agency in Thailand named Student Relocate to assist students for booking their hall of residences with UK student accommodation providers.
A serial entrepreneur, Siraprapa joined the British Business Group in Lao PDR as an advisory board member in 2019. During non-Covid times, she travels to Thailand monthly and the UK quarterly for business trips. She plays tennis and has a passion for investing.
