Founded in 1934, Thammasat University is the second earliest established university in Thailand. In the beginning it had only two disciplines—law and politics. At present it has 25 colleges and 240 disciplines, such as sociology, anthropology, economics, science, engineering, medicine, etc. It has become a comprehensive university. Among its 300,000 graduates there are many famous alumni, so the university is honored as the “cradle of premier”. The Chulabhorn International College of Medicine was founded in 2012 named by Princess Chulabhorn, and it is the first Thailand medical college where all the programs are taught in English. The Department of TCM will be established in 2017 in the college as a gift to the emperor of Thailand for celebration of his 90th birthday. At that time a dual degree TCM undergraduate program run by both sides will be started.
