Chulalongkorn University, the first institution of higher learning in Thailand, was officially established on 26 March 1917. Today the university has 18 faculties, 2,950 academic staff and a number of schools.
The basic goals of the university are to break new ground, search for, uphold and transmit knowledge along with ethical values to university graduates so that they are endowed with conscience and intelligence.
