PBIC’s History

Pridi Banomyong International College, located along the bank of the Chao Phraya River within Tha Pra Chan Campus of Thammasat University, was established in 2008 with an aim to introduce the unique interdisciplinary programs taught in English, in accordance with the commitment to the international policy of Thammasat University. Particular emphasis will be on new programs and degrees created in collaboration with leading universities overseas.


Pridi Banomyong International College was named after Prof. Dr. Pridi Banomyong, a Statesman and a Founder of Thammasat University. In 2000, UNESCO named Dr. Pridi one of the great personalities of the country. In recognition of his outstanding achievement of establishing Thammasat University, it is only appropriate to name this college after him.


During the 21st century amid globalization, economic growth, and open country policies, China has become a vital force in economic development in Asia and to the rest of the World. China currently is considered as one of the world’s great powers in many dimensions. In the meantime, Today’s economic development and cooperation between Thailand and China have been emphasized and intensified in all dimensions.

Therefore, “interdisciplinary” teaching and learning is needed in order to provide graduates with the ability to communicate effectively in both English and Chinese. Moreover, here, we also aimed to teach all of our graduates to have comprehensive knowledge in social sciences, humanities, and business administration, extended to knowledge and understanding of linguistic, socio-economic, and cultural conditions in order to achieve understanding peoples for a better and peaceful community.

It is an important mission of the Chinese Studies curriculum to develop the curriculum by integrating academic knowledge and social skills. Pridi Banomyong International College will assure to produce quality graduates to meet the needs of the ongoing business demand.
