Naresuan University emphasizes the improvement of educational opportunity and equity for all as one of the top government university in Thailand. A strong focus is placed upon research, innovation, partnership, and internationalization. Naresuan University aspires to be the University of Innovation. It is strategically located at the heart of the Thai Kingdom, Phitsanolok province, the major city of the lower northern region and more importantly, the birthplace of King Naresuan the Great for whom our University is named. In line with the auspicious date of the 400th anniversary of King Naresuan the Great’s accession to the throne, the University was officially founded on July 29, 1990. The institution’s history can, however, be traced back to its inception as the College of Education in 1967.
