University with Diversities

International Students at Siam University

“Diversity’ is the second pillars of Siam University. According to MHESI, we were ranked among Thailand’s top ten Universities for its population of international students. The Office of of Registration reports that between 2019-2021, there were 1,123, 1,264 and 1,214 international respectively. The student bodies comprises of undergraduate and graduate students from more than 50 countries of which 27 are classified as the World Bank’s low or lower-middle income countries. There were 652, and 534 students from the World Bank list in 2019 and 2020. As for the year 2021, it was shown that there are 437 students from 26 developing countries. Most of the students (492) studies at undergraduate level. It is noteworthy that number of international students at this level has declined due to the pandemic. However, Siam University has acccepted international students in graduate schools at almost the same number as pre-Covid19.

Students with Special Needs

Siam University also accept students from low-income families, monks and disables. We have followed the National Education Act and MHESI policy to assure that all students with disabilities in Thailand have the right to receive an education free of charge at all times of their study from birth or upon the finding of disabilities throughout their life. MHESI gives some financial support to universities and provide scholarship for this group. According to the statistics, the disables enroll only in undergraudate schools, mainly the School of Business Administration. According to the statistics of the Office of of Registration, it was reported that in 2020, there were 32 students with disabilities. The number is the same in the following year. These 32 specially needed students are well taken care of by the University special committee headed by Vice President Supathra Urwongse. Trained advisors are assigned to look after these students which help assure their success and happiness. A very good example in 2020 is the story of “Boon” who participatead in “Hero Stock Learning” organized by Department of Finacial and Investment. In this competition, he managed to be first runner-up and was accepted to work as a teacher assistance at both Siam University and at PTSC (Pre-Vocational Training for Special Child) Learning Center, Panitchayakan Rajdamnern Technological College.
