President's Message

Ubon Rajathanee University (UBU) was established as a public university under the Royal Charter in 1990. It is situated in the strategically-important province of Ubon Ratchathani in Esarn, the north-eastern region of Thailand. It is a rapidly growing institution serving the country's national policy of education for all as a means of achieving sustainable development.

UBU is a local, national and international university. At the local level, it services the needs of community and students from Esarn, a region rich in culture, history and potential development. At the national level, UBU is one of the country's leading regional universities. Internationally, it has links to overseas institutions via research, collaborative projects and exchange programs. It plays a major role in the development of the Greater Mekhong Sub-Region (GMS).

UBU conducts a wide range of undergraduate and post-graduate programs, with strengths in traditional academic areas and specialties in Thai and GMS issues. The university is a blend of modern technology, trends and local wisdom.

UBU offers an environment and culture conducive to living and learning. I invite you to browse the website regarding Esarn and UBU and to consider it as a unique place and an expanding university that has much to offer you in your professional and personal futures. UBU staff and I look forward to welcoming you to our university.
