Asian University Thailand

Introduction

Founded in 1993, Asian University is the first fully international university in Thailand. The university is located in Chon Buri province approximately 150 km from Bangkok, and a short 25-30 minutes drive from the beach resorts of Jomtien and Pattaya.

Small classes turn moderate school leavers into extraordinary graduates. As they say, 'in a small class you cannot not understand'.

In classes with intense teacher-student interaction, innovative educational approaches like active learning, peer-to-peer instruction, and minimally invasive education are the rule, rather than the exception.


The courses are taught in English. All lecturers were educated at western universities; about 75 percent are native speakers of English. Beyond their academic qualifications, all lecturers draw from extensive practical experience.

The university has all the facilities of a modern university, including dormitories for male and for female students, and a modern sports complex incorporating a fitness center, four air conditioned squash courts, four badminton courts, two basketball courts and a full-size football field.
