Message from the Dean

Greetings to Students, Staff Members, Personnel and All Interested Persons,

The School of Educational Studies, Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) was established on February 7, 1979.  Throughout the past 40 years, the School of Educational Studies, STOU has provided education in the distance education system in response to the needs of administrators, teachers, educational personnel and groups of workers in the state and private sectors who want to further their studies while at the same time still working and living in their own domicile.  The students can study on their own from educational media and engage in activities of the programs prescribed by the University such as supplementary teaching, learning activities, supplementary seminars and intensive seminars.

The work performances based on the mission of offering instruction at the bachelor degree, master degree, graduate diploma, and doctoral degree levels have developed and progressed consecutively.  So far, there are the total number of 143,344 students who have graduated from all study programs of the School of Educational Studies starting from the first badge up to the most recent badge in the 2019 academic year.  As for the work performances based on the main missions of conducting research, providing academic services, and preservation and maintenance of art and culture, the School of Educational Studies gives importance to the operation in accordance with the standards determined by work agencies at the international, national and university levels. 

The challenge for provision of education at present is that the educational provision must respond to the needs of students for convenience of learning, convenience of time, and convenience of place.  As such, the educational provision of STOU meets the standards as determined by the state and can respond well to the needs of the students.  

Finally, the School of Educational Studies will adhere to the provision of education to meet the standards determined by the state work agencies, the potential development of staff members to equip them with knowledge, ability and experience on educational management, the application of modern technologies in educational management, and the maintenance of the standards of educational provision with “quality” in order to producegraduatesto serve thesociety and country in the future.
