Khon Kaen University (KKU) was one of four regional universities established in 1964 as part of a decentralized development plan for higher education in Thailand. The campus is located in the northwest sector of Khon Kaen, just a few kilometres from the center of the city. Situated in a most attractive park, the campus covers approximately 900 hectares.
From small beginnings, KKU has grown enormously and is today home to more than 2,110 staff in seventeen faculties, four academic support centers, two academic services centers, a hospital and many research institutes, centres of excellence and specialist centres. Currently KKU has 59 international faculty staff and another 255 staff from other countries are coming as visiting lecturers or researchers.
