About

Thammasat University was established on June 27 1934 by Prof. Dr. Pridi Banomyong who, with his incredible vision, believed strongly that following its adoption of democracy in 1933, Thailand would require a new generation of educated people to develop the country. An excerpt from Professor Banomyong's speech delivered upon Thammasat’s establishment has become a fundamental part of Thammasat University’s philosophy to which we all adhere today:

"...A university is, figuratively, an oasis that quenches the thirst of those who are in pursuit of knowledge. The opportunity to acquire higher education rightly belongs to every citizen under the principle of freedom of education...Now that our country is governed by a democratic constitution, it is particularly essential to establish a university which will allow the people, and hence the public, to develop to their utmost capability. It will open up an opportunity for ordinary citizens to conveniently and freely acquire higher education for their own benefits and for development of our country..."

Thammasat University instills in all its students a commitment to uphold human rights, freedom and a sense of social responsibility
