About Chulalongkorn University

"Chulalongkorn University is the oldest and one of the most prestigious universities in Thailand. Founded in 1917 by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI), the university was named as a tribute to the king's royal father, King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). Over a period of time, Chulalongkorn University, or Chula for short, has grown to become a full-fledged university. Today, Chula has eighteen faculties, a graduate school, eleven research institutes, three teaching institutes, and four affiliated institutions with more than 2,800 faculty members. The Chulalongkorn University campus covers 500 acres in the heart of Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. The campus is within reach of the major business and financial district, as well as various other facilities." - Chulalongkorn University
