Webster University Thailand relocates city campus
Webster University Thailand’s city campus will move to a 700 square-meter space at The Empire Tower on Sathorn Road. Also known as the Bangkok Academic Center, this new location puts the university in the heart of Bangkok’s vibrant central business district and provides student engagement opportunities and access to a host of potential employers.
The University was first set up in Thailand in 1999 and this year celebrates its 15th anniversary. The undergraduate campus is located near the seaside resort towns of Hua Hin and Cha-am.
The new Bangkok Academic Center replaced the previous campus at Maneeya Center where the university outgrew its facilities and capacity. The new city campus is expected to attract many new students due to its accessibility, facilities, location and newly introduced undergraduate programs.
“We are excited about our new city campus, which reflects Webster University’s commitment to transform students for individual excellence and global citizenship,” said Ratish Thakur, Rector of Webster University Thailand.
“The new campus features state-of-the-art classrooms that are equipped with cutting-edge video-conferencing technology. This enables students to actively engage with peers and guest lecturers from other Webster University campuses worldwide together in a virtual classroom,” Thakur added.
“This two-way interactivity brings in global expertise to students and enhances their educational experience. Most importantly, this new location provides our students access to a host of potential employers.’
