BSRU History

Bansomdej Chaopraya Rajabhat University, as it is now known, was originally established in1896, in accordance with the Royal wishes of King Rama the Fifth to set up a secondary school based on the typical public school of the United Kingdom. At first it was formally called “King’s college”and located at Somdej Chaopraya Borommaha Srisuriyawongse (Chaung Bannag)’s residence

The maening of the word residence in Thai is “Ban” and that led to the name “Bansomdej Chaopraya” later. Over  the  following  century  the University has significantly developed. In 1995 we were highly honoured to receive a Rayal Award as Thailand’s most  outstanding  Institute  under the Ministry of Education’s higher education category.

At this time His Majesty King Bhummibol Adulydej bestowed the name “Institute of Rajabhat”. The Rajabhat Institute  later  became  Rajabhat University  following the Ralyal Command of June 14, 2004.This gave as a current title Bansomdej Chaopraya Rajabhat University. The University officially has all the honours of other State universities to provide education from kindergarten up to doctoral  degree  level.
