Mae Fah Luang University, the University in the Park
Mae Fah Luang University (MFU) was established as an autonomous public university, under the Royal Charter, in 1998, with generous support from the Royal Thai Government. The University was established to meet the needs of people in the north of Thailand, and to commemorate the gracious contributions of the King’s Mother, Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, lovingly known to her subjects as “Mae Fah Luang.” From its inaugural class of 64 students in 1998, MFU has become Thailand’s fastest growing post-secondary institution with an enrollment of just under 15,000 students. After little over a decade of operation, MFU is already well known for its high-quality teaching, research, and service to the people of the north, as well as Thailand.
Mae Fah Luang Unviersity’s campus consists of a large complex of modern, state-of-the-art buildings, spanning more than 800 hectares. The campus is located in a spectacular setting of mountains and trees, an environment conducive to teaching and learning in a clean, inviting setting. As both a regional and national university, MFU provides high-quality education services and resources for the neighboring countries of the Greater Mekhong Sub-region (GMS), and reaches out to all of Southeast Asia.
Mae Fah Luang University is the only Public University in Thailand that uses English as a medium of instruction in regular programmes (there are plenty of public university that provide course in English, but you have to enroll in international or special programme for that). In terms of opinion and perception, Mae Fah Luang University is voted to be the most beautiful university in Thailand. Since the university adopts English as the primary medium of educational instruction, number of international students increased dramatically. The University has been developing its curricula and instruction to meet international standards, adopting English as the primary medium of instruction, with regularly arranged activities to promote self-studying. Since its establishment about 20 years ago, Mae Fah Luang University in its continuing academic development has offered study programmes that meet both the domestic demand and that of Greater Mekhong Subregion countries.
