Joint Degree Programs

Assumption University has several joint degree programs that allow students to study partially at Au and then to complete their degree at a western university. The degree, awarded by the western university, is thus obtained at a substantially lower cost than having studied at the overseas university full-time. Au currently has seven Post-Graduate joint degree programs and one Undergraduate joint degree program and is exploring others. Au expects to soon endorse additional joint degree programs with colleges in India especially in the areas of Information Technology. These agreements will permit International students to study partially at their home institution and then come to AU to complete their degrees.

The congregation has been operating educational institutions in Thailand for more than 115 years.  There are 18 Gabrielite institutions in all, covering every level of study. AU is known as the “First International university of Thailand” with both a large international student body as well as an international faculty.
