  32. 32. [ 36 ] International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 In the modern, global age, a university education needs to be more than just classes and lectures. Students are now seeking opportunities to gain experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom. This means that higher education institutions should no longer view students as empty vessels waiting to be filled with knowledge instead of focusing on book learning alone, universities need to develop opportunities for students to gain experiences that will lead to professional advancement and personal development. Bangkok University International College (BUIC) has positioned itself to provide such opportunities to students through its commitment to creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, and internationalization. Creativityisn’tjustasloganforus.ThesevaluesembeddedinBangkokUniversity’sculture,influence everything we do. Our faculty and staff, as well as students, commit to this mindset as an enhancement to their lives at BUIC and beyond. One way BUIC can provide experiences to our students is by recognizing that higher education, like so many other things in life, isn’t an individual activity. It is a socialactivitythat builds off of others’experiences,knowledge, and skills. Nowadays, students do not isolate themselves in corners of the library studying lecture notes. Students heddle in groups looking for ways to connect with others, learn from others, and discover their unique talents. Our students seek to collaborate in their studies as they work together to tackle current issues faced by industry through problem-based learning. Whether it’s working on a real-life project with a company in the state of the art Media Lab or a simulated environment in the Tourism Tower, BUIC students can master the approaches of solving industry problems while going through a process of self-discovery, instead of just being told what to do. Bangkok University embraces creativity as the means for success in life. We believe that a creative environment allows for student growth BUIC ’s Life Special Section
  33. 33. International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 [ 37 ] and development. With the guidance of their professors, students are encouraged to try out new or innovative ways of solving problems, to create solutions that go beyond expectations. Along with creativity, we encourage our students to have an entrepreneurial spirit. To succeed creatively, students need to take risk and ownership for the success of theirideasandactivities.Ourcreativeclassroomsprovideasafeenvironment in which students can be successful in their journey of self-discovery. Our goal is to enable our students to become responsible visionaries with agility in thought and action, while developing excellence and trust in the professional arena – both domestically and internationally. Bangkok University is well positioned internationally. Our faculty and students come from over 50 different countries. We believe that diversity is a catalyst for the creativity of our students. Our students naturally learn to view the differences between people, countries, and cultures as opportunities for growth and development, not as obstacles to be overcome. The diversity that our faculty and students bring allows them to combine perspectives to create innovative solutions that might not have been thought of if they had just stayed with others similar to themselves. This isn’t always an easy process, but for students who stick with it, they will advanced in both their social and personal abilities as well as create life-long connections with people and experiences from around the world. In fact, our faculty serves as a role model to our students for international collaborations. Many student and cultural exchange programs will also provide valuable opportunities to study at leading partner universities around the world. The life at Bangkok University International College leads students on a journey of experiences and students on a journey of experiences and discovery in a creative environment. By the end of their journey, students will have gained knowledge, developed skills, and applied them towards reaching their professional ambitions and potential. BUIC’s Graduates are creative entrepreneurs ready to contribute their development to a global industry.

  38. 38. [ 42 ] International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 As part of a series of lectures conducted by renowned individuals, the International LL.B. Program in Business Law at the Faculty of Law, Thammasat University welcomed another prominent speaker to its course, Introduction to ASEAN, one of the many intensive classes taken by first-year students. The speaker was none other than Mr. Abhisit Vejjajiva himself, known by all as the 27th Prime Minister of Thailand. Holding other prestigious positions that include the former chair of ASEAN, he brought his extensive knowledge and first-hand experience to lead an inspiring discussion at a venue full of young, lively, and curious law students on the topic of “ASEAN as an Economic Challenge to Thailand.” On March 19th , Mr. Abhisit arrived at the Faculty of Law of Thammasat University, where approximately 100 students were eagerly waiting to hear his perspective on a regional bloc that is due to transform into a formally established economic community in late 2015. Warmly welcomed with beaming faces, Mr. Abhisit cheerfully remarked that he was delighted to return to the Tha Prachan campus once again, as he recalled his earlier years there as a full-time lecturer. Mr. Abhisit surveyed the room and proceeded to test us on the year that marked the creation of ASEAN. The answer, ‘1967’, rang out loud and clear, marking the beginning of an undisputedly awe-inspiring lecture. He briefly provided a comparative analysis of ASEAN in its prior state, as a bloc formed for security purposes, with ASEAN in its current form, which has great significance from both economic and geopolitical perspectives. The ability to compete more effectively with neighboringcountriesand,forthatmatter,thewiderworld,aswellaswieldgreaterbargainingpowerinmanyinternationalforums are key benefits that Mr. Abhisit highlighted before turning his focus onto the challenges which ASEAN now faces.

WhenMr.Abhisitopened the floor for discussion, hands immediately shot up around the room to take advantage of the incredible opportunity to get his insightful perspective.

His comprehensive explanationssparkedfurtherinterestanditwasonlyamatterofseconds before a lively back-and-forth ensued, with the students keen to give and challenge opinions and learn from the eminent speaker. As the session drew to a close, there could be no doubt that the information and ideas he conveyed were thought-provoking when his expression of thanks was greeted by a thundering ovation from the students. InthewordsofMr.Abhisit,theprincipalchallenge for ASEAN is to be truly integrated. Like all other countries, Thailand has a responsibility in building upphysicalconnectivity,whichincludesthehighway networks,railnetworksandevenenergygridsthat arealreadyintheworks. However,suchresponsibility also extends to connectivity between people, as familiarityandunderstandingofourfellowASEAN member states and the people who live in them isneedednowmorethanever.ASEAN,inMr.Abhisit’s eyes, can only be as strong economically and politically as it is united; this principle is reflected in the European Union, which many regard as the model for ASEAN integration as a whole. In light of this statement, Mr. Abhisit delved deeper to explore thechallengesmoreparticulartoThailand itself.Oneoftheseincludestheshortage of labor created by an aging society, which calls for changes in the role of foreign workers in Thailand’s economy priortothecommencementoftheAEC. Another challenge acknowledges the fearamongSMEsofthethreatposed bytheAECitself,arisingfromthe currentunavailabilityofsupport systems like an ASEAN center, as Mr.Abhisitproposed,todistribute muchneededhelpandinformation.

[ 44 ] International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 As a research-led institution, Mahidol University is committed to developing innovative solutions to many of today’s most important social, environmental and public health challenges. Crucial to this approach is a focus on translational research - a process under which research findings are taken to the development and pilot scale. The university is also a supporter of public-private research partnerships. For over 30 years, Mahidol University researchers have made important discoveries on the mechanisms and management of global infectious diseases (including Malaria, HIV, Dengue, Avian influenza, and other zoonotic diseases). These include innovations in vaccine development and drug resistance and the introduction of Phase III trials. Researchers also pioneered the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of alpha and beta thalassemia. The university helped to introduce precision medicine, systems biology protein crystallography and glycobiology in Thailand. In addition, research into shrimp,starch,soysaucebiotechnology,enzymetechnology,materialscience andrubbertechnologyhavebenefitedThailand’sagriculture,food-production and export sectors. Meanwhile, researchers play an important role in the protection of the environment, in particular ASEAN wetland management and the conservation of hornbills through the mobilization of local communities. In the social sciences, university researchers are leaders in the fieldsofgender,migration,humanrights,demographicsandageingsocieties.

The university has also formed multi-disciplinary research groups or clusters by encouraging its individual faculties/institutes to work side-by-side on a particular issue. WHO Collaborating Centers Mahidol University’s expertise in medical research has been recognized by the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO). As a result, it is home to seven designated WHO collaborating centers at various university faculties and institutes. The Faculty of Public Health has been designated as the Secretariat of the Network for WHO Collaborating Centers and National Centers of Expertise in Thailand. These centers, not only help to strengthen Thailand’s national health development, but also form part of the WHO’s network of regional and international collaboration.
  42. 42. [ 46 ] International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 ThaiHigherEducation Higher education administration The Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC) has the mandate to provide recommendations on policy, strategies and development planning and devise higher education standards in response to socio-economic development of the country and serving various needs of learners. OHEC has responsibility to promote and support higher education development with respect to the degree-granting institutions’ academic freedom and excellence. OHEC is directed by the Higher Education Commission. According to the Article 16 of the Ministry of Education Regulatory Act, the Higher Education Commission has the authority to propose higher education policies, development plans and standards in line with the national economic and social development plan and the national education plan. In addition, its main responsibilities include supporting allocation of resources and monitoring and evaluation of higher educationprovision;providingrecommendationsontheissuanceofhighereducationregulations, criteria and announcements; and providing comments and recommendations to the Minister of Education or the Council of Ministers. Currently, OHEC oversees altogether 173 higher education institutions. In relation to diversity of higher education system in Thailand, there are 80 public universities (65 autonomous universities and 15 universities) and 73 private higher education institutions (42 universities, 10 institutions and 21 colleges) and 20 community colleges. Higher education policies The Second 15-Year Long Range Plan on Higher Education (2008-2022) was formulated by OHEC with a view to providing recommendations on directions for development of higher education with diversity and differences that are responsive to the country’s development. The key theme of the Long Range Plan is an effort to eliminate persistent problems of the Thai highereducationinordertosettherightdirectionsforhighereducationdevelopment,lessenduplication, upgrade quality, and enhance efficiency. To strengthen Thai higher education system, the Long Range Plan has set a major goal to be achieved by classifying Thai higher Education institutions into 4 categories comprising of (1) research and graduate universities, (2) specialized and comprehensive universities, (3) 4-year universities and liberal arts colleges, and (4) community colleges. T hai Higher Education
  43. 43. International Programs in THAILAND & ASEAN Vol.9 [ 47 ] A movement in higher Education in succession to the Second 15-Year Long Range Plan on Higher Education is the announcement ofthe 11th HigherEducation Development Plan (2012-2016)formulated as a direction to strengthen Thai higher education. The targeted vision of the plan is that higher education is the source of knowledge and manpower development for sustainable development of the nation, creates lifelong learning society in line with the 11th National Economic and Social Development Plan (2012 - 2016) on the basis of the sufficiency economy philosophy, plays a greater role in the ASEAN Community, and move towards the international standards. The four strategies employed to drive Thai higher education towards the targeted vision are as follows: L=LeaderofChangeManagementforQualityEducation(Change of organization leading system to drive higher education holistically), E=Educatorprofessional(Capacitybuildingofteacherstobecome professionalsandencouragingprofessionalexpertstobecometeachers), G = Graduates with quality and social responsibility (Elevation of graduates’ quality), and S = Satang utilization (Higher education financing reform). Educational standards and quality assurance OHEC has a significant mission to encourage full-fledged quality assurance systems within all public and private higher education institutions by providing policy guidelines, supporting for knowledge sharingactivities,andimplementingrelatedinternationalprojects.The external quality assurance (EQA) has been conducted by the Office fortheNationalEducationStandardsandQualityAssessment(ONESQA) while the internal quality assurance (IQA) has been prepared in the form of self-study report by higher education institutions. OHEC has launched the second phase of the quality assurance system in academic year 2014, encouraging the universities to conduct quality assurance at the level of program of study, faculty, and institution. OHEC serves as a link with the ONESQA to ensure effective communication flow, mutual understanding and further action for institutions after external quality assessments are completed. In order that Thai degrees are internationally recognized, OHEC has intensively encouraged Thai higher education institutions to work in close collaboration with many leading institutions around the globe to heighten the quality of instructors and programs of study. Thai qualifications framework for higher education The Thai Qualifications Framework for Higher Education was initiated in 2003 to assist the implementation of education guidelines set out in the National Education Act of 1999, ensure consistency in both standards and award titles, and make clear the equivalence of academic awards with those granted by higher education institutions inotherpartsoftheworld.Theframeworkwillhelpprovideappropriate points of comparisons in academic standards for institutions in their planningandinternalqualityassuranceprocess,forevaluatorsinvolved in external reviews, and for employers in understanding the skills and capabilities of graduates they may employ. The Thai Qualifications Framework for Higher Education and the guideline in implementing the Thai Qualifications Framework for Higher Education have been proclaimed in July 2009 to serve as
