  3. 3. Findingthebestuniversityorcollegeandtheperfectprogramtomatch interests, skills and career ambitions is an exciting time for all students and their parents as they get ready to make the wonderful transition from high school to university life. Now more than ever with AEC soon opening amazing new prospects, it is imperative for anyone entering university to think ‘international’. With this in mind, the Seventh Annual International Programs in ThailandHandbook is an excellent reference to begin a productive search into educational choices. With revised and updated information, descriptions and details, along with two new sections, interviews with two universities and a list of The ASEAN University Network member universities, this edition is a vital source of answers to the most important decision in your life; a decision that should be based on the latest information regarding educational opportunitiesavailable. As Thailand continues to play an expanding and dynamic role in the region, FTC’s goal to provide graduating high school students with unbiased information about international programs has gained a reputation unmatched by any other publication of its type. This year’s handbook sees a massive 10,000+ copies being printed. Our increased print-run is needed as the handbook is now freely distributed to students at 130 international schools, 158 private bilingual schools and 176 schools with English and Mini English Programs throughoutThailand. In addition, our 2013 handbook is shared with counselors at all internationalandbilingualschoolsinThailand,120+leadingThaihighschools, 500+ school, university, public and corporate libraries, 170+ foreign embassies and consulates in Thailand, all Thai embassies and consulates overseas and finally, starting this year, our handbook will be distributed to all counselors and librarians at international schools throughout ASEAN. We continue to place our handbook in as many places as we can as we know from feedback received that a great many students have started their educational search with our content as an indispensible reference. Easy to find, it is increasingly being recognized as providing a clear and concise introduction to educational opportunities available in The Kingdom of Thailand. In closing, I would like to add that we believe our Handbook - InternationalProgramsinThailand plays a vital role in a continuing and widening trend to support friends and colleagues at the institutes included. This handbook is our way to show our continuing support for our friendsineducationastheystrivetodevelopThailandasaleaderinproviding exceptional international programs to a growing number of Thai and internationalstudentsseekingqualityeducationinalandknownforitshospitality.

  4. 4. International Programs in Thailand Vol.73 4 With the current global environment and dynamic changes that are taking place today, every educational institution must rise to the challenge of providing the best for students as they face the demands of the world around them. Bangkok University is one of the leading institutions in Thailand that has positioned itself to meet this challenge and offers its students the opportunitytoexcelbeyond standard expectations. Bangkok University’s commitment to Creativity is enhanced by its mission towards internationalization and focus on generating student ability in entrepreneurship, to embed these aspects into its culture, among its faculty and staff as well as its students. “Howcanwemakeourstudentscompetitive,intermsoflanguageproficiency,andintermsoftheir abilitytoworkinternationally?” Asks Dr.SiriwanRatanakarn, Vice President for International Affairs. “Itissomethingthatwehavetowatchveryclosely.Bytheyear2015, therewillbesevenprofessions that will become open for mobility and free-flow of skilled labor between ASEAN member states - Bangkok University : Moving Forward with the AEC *Dr.SiriwanRatanakarn “ ” We have already revised our curriculum to meet those professional standards as our students will have to compete with more graduates from neighboring countries in todayís job market.

NEdNet provides a powerful network infrastructure placing the fiber optic transmission covering all provinces in Thailand. More than 26,000kilometerslongservesasaninfrastructure basedonDWDMtechnologyandGigabitEthernet for data communication, which allow exchange and sharing of knowledge and resources among institutions. The linkage with educational and research networks overseas enables academic institutions to manage virtual classrooms with institutions abroad.
