"Thailand's First Institution of Higher Learning"
Named after King Rama V, Chulalongkorn University was officially founded in 1917. King Rama V or King Chulalongkorn had initiated royal policies to strengthen and improve government in the wake of worldwide economic, social and political changes in the late nineteenth century. Chulalongkorn University has, in many ways, been a pacesetter among Thailand's higher educational institutions and has evolved largely in response to the needs and requirements of the country and its people.
Today, Chulalongkorn University houses 19 faculties, 3 colleges, and 11 institutes. The university offers a wide range of disciplines in mainly four areas: health science, science and technology, social science and humanities. The university has over 32,000 students currently enrolled.
Chulalongkorn University deems it a duty to instill into its graduates inquisitiveness, constructive initiative, critical thinking, sense of responsibility, foresight, morals and devotion to the common good.
