Thailand’s Minister for Education visits CTC


Thailand’s Minister for Education visits CTC

Thai minister of education

On January 27th we welcomed to the college a delegation led by the Thai Minister for Education.  The Minister was accompanied by Julia Plaistowe, Senior Adviser to the Royal Thai government’s Office of Educational Affairs.  For many years, CTC has been educating Thai students, including many government sponsored scholars, for whom the Office of Educational Affairs is responsible.  Our Thai students have enjoyed impressive academic success.  They have also contributed very positively to the wider life of the college and, in so doing, have been excellent ambassadors for their country.  We look forward to welcoming many more Thais to CTC!
