Thammasat University, founded in 1933, is one of the oldest universities in Thailand. Formerly known as the University of Ethics and Politics, it was approved as an “Open University" in law and politics in 1934. In 1952, it was officially renamed Thammasat University, and ended its history as an Open University in 1960, becoming a formal university with strict admission requirements and passing the entrance examination. In 1962, the school established the first liberal arts department in Thailand and introduced the liberal arts education, becoming the founder of modern higher arts education in Thailand.
The university enjoys a high reputation in the fields of law, economics and accounting, and has developed into an internationally renowned comprehensive and multi-disciplinary university focusing on the humanities and social sciences. Graduates mostly work in government departments, and many of them are leaders of Thailand's political and economic field, thus Thammasat University is known as the "cradle of prime minister".
