Why an International Ph.D. Program?
This thesis-based Ph.D. program follows international practice, and thus differs from many programs of universities in Thailand that are often based on coursework. In abiding by international standards, the resultant thesis exhibits its author's understanding of the context of the work, its contribution to world knowledge and its cohesion as a sustained logical exposition. As such it offers wide international credibility, especially in the ASEAN Region. The program is considered appropriate for future academic positions as ASEA's university sector becomes more international in charecter.
