Stamford International University (Thailand) - Historical Background

Historical Background

Stamford College was established in Singapore and Malaysia in 1950. Subsequently a campus under the name of Stamford International College was opened in Thailand in 1995 as a joint venture with Fareast Stamford International Co. Ltd.

While the institution was started with an English-based international curriculum, parallel courses in Thai language were introduced along the way. Credits can be transferred worldwide to (and from) colleges and universities at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The University established an academic collaboration agreement with Schiller International University of the United States in 2000 and was renamed to Schiller-Stamford International College (2 August 2000) that year. Students at Stamford (Hua Hin), have an opportunity to study in any of the 8 campuses of Schiller in Europe and the United States, through programs offered under the students exchange agreement between the two Universities.

STIU underwent several changes in its name in the process of evolving to a full-blown University - a status which was granted by the Ministry of University Affairs on 14 February 2003, resulting in a renaming to Schiller-Stamford International University. STIU finally achieved autonomy on 26 May 2004 and was re-branded as Stamford International University.

On 29 September 2008, STIU underwent an exhaustive re-branding - including the logo, the symbol, official colours, motto etc.

Famous quotes containing the words background and/or historical:

    I had many problems in my conduct of the office being contrasted with President Kennedy’s conduct in the office, with my manner of dealing with things and his manner, with my accent and his accent, with my background and his background. He was a great public hero, and anything I did that someone didn’t approve of, they would always feel that President Kennedy wouldn’t have done that.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    Religion means goal and way, politics implies end and means. The political end is recognizable by the fact that it may be attained—in success—and its attainment is historically recorded. The religious goal remains, even in man’s highest experiences, that which simply provides direction on the mortal way; it never enters into historical consummation.
    Martin Buber (1878–1965)
