History of NUIC
Naresuan University International College (NUIC) was established by the Council of Naresuan University at its’ 94th meeting, on January 13, 2001, with a view to enhancing the effectiveness and reputation of Naresuan University as an international center for learning.
The establishment of NUIC was in response to the need for Naresuan University to better position itself internationally. As a young, dynamic, and vibrant tertiary education institution, Naresuan University has set as its’ goal the provision of high quality education to our students and a move towards prominence and innovation in its educational endeavors.
Several developments led to the establishment of the International College. In 1997, the Language Centre was formed, as a joint undertaking with the University of Newcastle (UK), as part of an effort to improve the English proficiency of the staff and students, as well as to provide language instruction to the general public. After the Language Centre was founded, academic collaboration with foreign universities was established. For example, in 2000, a dual degree program (M.A. in International Tourism and Hotel Management) was offered in partnership with Southern Cross University. Furthermore, international MBA and DBA programs, also in partnership with Southern Cross University, were envisioned.
Apart from partnership programs with universities overseas, several international programs offered have been developed and instituted by various faculties within the university. Such programs include a Master of Science in Renewable Energy by the Faculty of Science (now the College of Renewable Energy), a Master of Science in Cosmetics Science and a doctoral program in Pharmaceutical Sciences, both in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
With new educational developments on the horizon, NUIC was conceived and formalized, with the Language Centre incorporated into the college itself. NUIC is charged with the responsibility of providing effective management and administration of international programs at the undergraduate level at Naresuan University.
