About Chiang Mai University

Chiang Mai University was founded in January 1964, in a Royal Charter granted by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. CMU, or Mor Chor as it is known locally, was the first institute of higher education in the north, and the first provincial university in Thailand. Since our opening in 1964, with the three founding Faculties of Science, Social Sciences, and Humanities, we have continued to augment our structure and organization in terms of premises, the range of disciplines offered, and student enrollment.

Today, CMU has seventeen Faculties with 107 individual departments, and a Graduate School. We currently offer a total of 253 programs: 3 Certificate Programs, 87 undergraduate programs and 163 postgraduate and graduate diploma programs, to more than twenty-five thousand students. In addition, two international Bachelors program and 18 international Masters and Doctoral programs, taught in English language, are presently being offered to international students by Social Sciences, Health Sciences, and Science and Technology faculties. We have three campuses, which together cover about 3,490 acres of land. The main University campus, Suan Sak campus, lies about 5 kilometres west of the city center. Set against the backdrop of Doi Suthep mountain, the campus occupies a 725-acre site, bounded on three sides by busy shopping streets and on the fourth by Chiang Mai Zoo. Here you will find the University?s administrative centre, the Science, Engineering, Humanities, and Social Sciences faculties, the Graduate School, all of the Campus Resource Facilities and Services and our major sports facilities. An attractive feature of this campus is the Ang Kaew Reservoir. Constructed to supply water for the University, it also provides an idyllic recreational area for both campus residents and the local community.
