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 Bachelor of Business Administration and and Master of Logistics and Supply Chain by NUIC and School of Logistics and Supply Chain.

Statement of Values
7 Statement of Values, Naresuan University International College
NUIC is committed to teaching practices that are both engaging and challenging to the learners
NUIC supports a learner-centered view of teaching. The instructor should develop an understanding of the perspectives and abilities of the learner. Teachers must have the knowledge, skills and confidence to adapt and develop curricula to meet the specific needs of the learner.
NUIC places a high value on collegial interaction and collaborative development among faculty, students, support staff and teaching colleagues. Emphasis is placed on the professional, legal, and ethical responsibilities of a teacher.
NUIC believes that educators should participate actively in reflective practice in order to develop a new understanding of and skill in teaching. Reflective practice, guided by the principles of self-directed learning and self-evaluation, is believed to be the foundation of continuous professional growth.
NUIC believes that teaching is an interactive problem-solving and decision-making process, a dynamic process involving critical thinking through which the learner develops knowledge with understanding.
NUIC believes that there must be a clearly defined connection between theory (academic disciplines and educational theory) and practice (methods for achieving educational ends in context). Responsible educators continuously strive to adapt theory to support meaningful learning.
NUIC places a high value on life long learning, curiosity, the love of knowledge and critical thought. Knowledge and skill in pedagogy must be connected with the academic disciplines.
