DPUIC is the international college set up by Dhurakij Pundit University to meet the increasing demand for degree courses of international standards taught in English. The reasons for starting it are obvious. Each year, hundreds of Thai students spend enormous sums of money to study in universities, colleges and schools overseas. Those with no financial means to go abroad have limited opportunities of getting a tertiary education in English at home. By making such courses available in Bangkok, DPUIC is able to meet their needs and save them time and money as well.
