After becoming a university in 1990, RSU has since grown rapidly. Today it has almost 30 000 students attending 94 undergraduate, 37 graduate and 9 Doctoral degree programs. RSU puts great emphasis on providing high-class education and continuously developing its curricula and teaching methods to best match the demands of the modern economic, technological and social climate. The university is fully accredited by the Thai Government’s Commission on Higher education, a part of the Ministry of Education. It is also rated in the highest category in the quality assurance audits conducted by the Ministry of Education and the Thai Office for National Education Standards and Quality Assessment. RSU constantly strives for internationalization by offering various international programs and building its global network that currently holds over 60 leading universities and institutions around the world. More than 500 international students from over 20 countries and several Western professors provide different cultural insights and perspectives on the teaching programs, as well as the campus life. RSU is also a member and the representative of the Asian Region of the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC). Its core values include tolerance and understanding of different views and freedom of expression. RSU aims at creating a just and compassionate society based on equal opportunity for all.
