Why MFU?

Since 1998, Mae Fah Luang University (MFU) has been established as a public autonomous university situated in Chiang Rai province, the gateway to the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS), in the heart of the ASEAN region.   The university was founded to meet the needs of the people in the north of Thailand and its neighbouring countries, and to commemorate the gracious contributions of the King’s Mother, Her Royal Highness Princess Srinagarindra, lovingly known to her subjects as “Mae Fah Luang”.

Almost two decades of development has led to MFU being recognized as Thailand’s fastest growing higher education institution. English is used as the primary medium of instruction in the majority of courses, with Problem Based Learning being MFU’s method of teaching.

Utilising the “University in the Park” concept, MFU offers an environment and culture highly conductive to living and learning, attracting numerous visitors from many countries annually. This has led to various forms of mutual cooperation and collaborations, and has encouraged the rapidly increasing number of international students.

The International Affairs Division (IAD) offers friendly and helpful advice, from the initial enquiry stage, assistance with application procedures, as well as immigration and travel guidance. We invite you to consider MFU as the university of your choice on your path to future learning
