Srinakharinwirot University, located in the city center Bangkok, was founded in 1949. SWU was named by the present King of Thailand, His Royal Majesty Bhumipol Adulyadej, and is the leading Thai university in the fields of Education and the Fine Arts. This university was the first institution of higher learning in Thailand to focus on educating teachers, and has since become one of Thailand’s most highly regarded universities for teacher training, as well as for administering the Ministry of Education’s required Thai language and culture course. SWU remains dedicated to the ideals of fostering international cooperation, educational innovation, and creativity among both teachers and students.
SWU TEFL/TESOL Program
Srinakharinwirot University is proud to present an intensive (120 hour) TEFL training course approved by the Thai Ministry of Education, using a syllabus developed by the Strategic Wisdom and Research Institute (SWRI) and the Srinakharinwirot University Language Institute. This course differs from other TEFL courses by incorporating the Ministry of Education’s Thai language and culture course, a requirement for foreign English teachers. The course takes a practical approach, assuming no prior teaching experience or knowledge of Thai language and culture. Furthermore, we are dedicated to providing full occupational support to every teacher who graduates the program, and our trainees can rest assured that there will be a home and an excellent job awaiting them when their training is complete.
