Mae Fah Luang University

Chiang Rai Thailand

For nineteen years, Mae Fah Luang University has been devoted to becoming a world class educational institution through collaborations and academic excellence, providing international standard education for the Greater Mekong Subregion while continuing to strengthen and build networks with partner universities around the world.

MFU is vastly expanding, gaining recognition through international accreditation. MFU offers 14 schools with innovation as a core concept of learning and research, encouraging exploration of new applications and practices. Our lecturers have gained global recognition for their research projects, further helping MFU achieve our goals of being “new, different, and better”.

As MFU thrives, we continue to receive increasing numbers of student applications each semester, leading to a highly diverse international student body comprised of 28 nations, including all 10 ASEAN nations. MFU also offers great diversity in our academic staff body, with 54 foreign lecturers and numerous visiting scholars from international partner universities. Opportunities for mobility are offered to the entire MFU community through our many exchange programmes, allowing students, staff, and researchers to attain direct experience from global perspectives.

It is with great pride that we see our students fostering multicultural skills and distributing global vision among their peers. The 21st century calls for unique abilities, with requirements for up-to-date technology, media, and information literacy as well as productive social skills. At MFU, our students are able to practice these skills in a diverse multicultural setting, allowing for a wider range of applications and experiences.

In addition to academic development, MFU also focuses on social development by serving the community through welfare services; modern medicine and alternative medicine services; and vocational and training services. MFU has been undergoing various new constructions to facilitate practical training. The MFU Human Resources Development Centre and the Learning Development Centre is soon to be completed, and will provide on-campus simulations of various aviation and hospitality industry-related settings for realistic practical application in learning. The MFU Medical Hub is currently in construction, and will be completed in 2018, allowing MFU to serve as the heart of health and medicine for the GMS.
