Prince of Songkla University
Public university, Songkla
Prince of Songkla University (PSU) was founded in 1967 as a public Thai university. It was planned as a multi-campus institution to respond in a realistic manner to the needs of southern Thailand. The university has five campuses situated in different southern provinces. The university function is to incorporate global competencies with local potentials and make them available for regional development and to search, develop, and transmit local/regional competencies for global recognition and cooperation.
The international program is offered by PSUIC Prince of Songkla University International College in Hat Yai.
Many of the significant changes in higher education in Thailand over the last fifteen years have taken place as a result of shifts in government policy towards education (Office of the Education Council, 2004). In creating the UIC, these policy changes must be embraced and a number of other important factors also have to be taken into account.
English will be the medium of instruction and this will have critical implications for the recruitment of both staff and students as well as the way in which UIC’s programs are delivered. When locating the proposed college PSU’s status as a multi-campus University must be taken into account. The College can act as a means of enhancing the university’s national and international standing, and emphasis needs to be placed on fields of study and niche subjects that are peculiar to Southern Thailand.
PSUIC provides PSU's on-campus hotel.
