Mahidol University (MU) has its origins in the first institution of higher learning in Thailand, namely the medical school founded at SIriraj Hospital in 1890.  Later becoming the University of Medical Sciences in 1942,  the University was renamed in 1969 by H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej after his own father, Prince Mahidol of Songkla, who is widely considered to be the Father of Modern Medicine and Public Health in Thailand.  Since then, the university has expanded into a prestigious multi-disciplinary university, covering numerous fields of discipline including medicine, basic and applied sciences, public health, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, engineering, environment, veterinary sciences, sport sciences, disability studies, management, hospitality industry, religious studies, social sciences, music and the arts. MU has three campuses in the Bangkok metropolitan area: the large suburban campus at Salaya in nearby Nakhon Pathom province, and two inner city campuses in Bangkok Noi and Phayathai in the Bangkok area, in addition to a downtown high-rise office site for the College of Management. There are also provincial campuses in Kanchanaburi, Nakhon Sawan and Amnaj Charoen provinces. MU campuses are electronically linked by a state-of-the-art computer network which provides academic, research and administrative computing services to the various departments of the university and to all staff and students.  MU is organized into 16 Faculties (engaged in teaching, research and academic services), 6 Colleges (mainly teaching), 8 Institutes (mainly research) and 8 Centers (mainly academic services).  In addition to the national degree programs taught in the Thai language, Mahidol University has offered international degree programs, taught totally in English, for many years. Based on the concept of "Global Quality-Thai Touch", these programs aim not only at ensuring that degree programs have international quality, but also that students develop into global citizens. They also provide leadership in key areas of education to students from neighboring countries. These international degree programs at Bachelor, Master's, Doctoral, and Graduate Diploma attract more than international 1,000 students annually from many countries. Mahidol University International College (MUIC) offers most of the university's 20 international undergraduate programs. With over 30 years of experience, the college is one of the most successful international undergraduate degree programs in Thailand.
