The quality of international education at Bangkok University extends beyond degree programs. Besides short and certificate courses on hot issues and international education trips abroad effectively run side by side with our degree programs, centers of Excellence are another key factor that helps enrich and enhance the quality of education at Bangkok University. BU currently houses a number of centers of excellence.

The fact that BU begets the name “creative university” is from, besides creative education, having creative students, faculty and staff moving around and in every corner of the campus. BU then set up BUCC as a gallery space and display room for those creative individuals, particularly those who have received “BU Scholarship for Creativity,” to unleash their creative talents and showcase their creations. Indeed, BUCC has successfully answered BU’s wish to create creative environment on campus.
