Zhou Gaoyu Visits Webster Thailand

Zhou Gaoyu, First Secretary for Education from the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Bangkok, made his first visit to Webster’s new Bangkok Academic Center.

The ambassador’s first visit to Webster served as a platform to discuss further collaboration efforts between universities from China, the provinces of Yunnan and Guangxi and Webster University Thailand.

Ratish Thakur, director of Webster University Thailand, noted several key benefits to this collaboration, such as the ongoing efforts in student and faculty short-term and long-term exchange programs, as well as collaboration efforts with numerous Chinese universities. Thakur said such exchange programs create an opportunity for students from China and the United States to further their understanding of each culture, develop friendships and engage in new business possibilities.

Zhou Gaoyu observed how Webster University created a new model for education and cultural exchange as an American university with an international campus in Thailand, linking the countries of USA, China and Thailand and creating numerous advantages for current and potential students who seek an American-accredited degree.
