RU Regional Campus in Honour of His Majesty the King
Given its long-standing commitment to providing equal opportunity in the field of education for all Thais, especially, those who have long lacked such opportunities, since 1995, guided by the vision of the Former President, Associate Professor Rangsan Saengsook, Ramkhamhaeng University, in cooperation with government agencies and members of the private sector in the region, has established a series of Regional Campuses in Honour of His Majesty the King, covering all regions of Thailand.
The launch of distance learning via satellite (using a two-way video-conferencing system) for the regional campuses, for both undergraduate and graduate levels at Ramkhamhaeng University, has been a great success, and places Ramkhamhaeng University at the forefront of the trend towards distance learning in Thailand.
At present there are 23 regional campuses, all of which function as part of the Ramkhamhaeng University System, and more are being added. All campuses, serving as both academic and cultural centers, not only provide regional and local access to academics on campuses, but also strengthen closer ties with the surrounding community through a variety of cultural activities.
The regional campuses throughout the country have formally bear the name “Ramkhamhaeng University Regional Campus in Honour of His Majesty the King” to mark the occasion of the 50thAnniversary Celebrations of H.M. the King’s Accession to the Throne and 60thAnniversary Celebrations of H.M. the King’s Accession to the Throne.
