Silpakorn University is not only rich in history, but it is also considered one of Thailand’s top public universities. It was originally established as the school of fine arts by Corrado Ferroci (Prof. Silpa Bhirasri) in 1923, who under the commission of King Rama V1, was appointed to work as a sculptor at the school.
Initially assigned to teach Thai craftsmen the western technique and art of sculpture, Prof Silpa expanded his class to include members of the public who were also interested in learning as well. The artist later adopted Thai nationality and a Thai name known as Silpa Bhirasri.
By 1943 the school’s popularity led to it being given a new status as a University. Since then Silpakorn University has grown to offer fully fledged degree programs at both graduate and undergraduate level in all major fields of art and design, science and technology, health science, social sciences, management and music.
