The University of Puthisastra (UP) was fully recognized by the Royal Government of Cambodia under a sub-decree (174), signed by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, on 15 November 2007.
UP has also been awarded full accreditation for its Foundation Year Course by the Accreditation Committee of Cambodia (ACC). University of Puthisastra (UP) was created in 2007 with a strong commitment to help the educational development in Cambodia through our vision and core values. We believe in helping the new generation of leaders through education and endless support to help them realize their potential. We believe in the importance of creating a learning and sharing community of teachers, students and international partners, who are not afraid to push the boundary of knowledge for the benefit of human kind.
University of Puthisastra (UP) currently faces a lot of challenges and opportunities to become the leading university in Cambodia. In addition to being passionately committed to our core values, this young institution is working hard to build its reputation through quality and a strong commitment to helping lecturers and students come together to exchange and share knowledge. UP is pushing the frontier by capitalizing on the current technology to help support the school to provide an environment that is conducive to learning and sharing for students and lecturers, in both areas of hard-skills and soft-skills.
We are laying out strong foundations to help create a path for UP to realize its vision. On top of providing the right and up-to-date facilities on campus, we are also focusing on creating a strong and transparent management structure and network to build a solid foundation for the school. More importantly, we hope to establish a culture that upholds our standards, in a sustainability way, for the school, and that everyone can enjoy for generations to come.
Education is at the forefront of the development of any country, and the ability for a country to connect to other countries is even more vital to a country’s development as well as the world’s development. We believe that international involvement through exchange programs, scholarship programs, and other programs will further help UP to realize its vision and mission, on top of expanding the people’s capacity to develop their community.
