The First Women Students at Chulalongkorn University

In 1927, the first batch of women students was admitted to Chulalongkorn University. They entered the Faculty of Arts and Science and were admitted to the Pre-Medical Programme. The offering of a co-education programme for the first time indicated the advancement of Thai higher education.

The person who initiated the pilot project to accept women students to study at Chulalongkorn University was MomChao Poonsrikasem Kasemsri, who was, at that time, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science. In 1927, seven female students, who had completed Mathayom 8, were selected as the first batch of female Pre-Medical students in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
