Training and Development

  1. Tuition Remission:

 Full time employees may apply for Tuition Remission for themselves or their immediate family members. The tuition remission benefit may be used once only by an employee who has been in full-time employment for at least one year. Tuition remission may be used for any program offered at the Thailand Campus, subject to the condition that the University does not incur any additional expenses.

Employees on tuition remission are required to maintain full-time working status and are permitted to take no more than half a day while availing tuition remission.

The tuition remission benefit continues only as long as the employee remains in full-time employment. Full tuition fees are payable from the time that the employee ceases to be in the University’s employment.

The University may ask an employee to defer the tuition remission benefit if it is deemed that a significant number of employees have already been granted tuition remission.

Employees under suspension or under probation will not be afforded the tuition remission benefit.

  1. Educational Attainment Award:

All full-time non-academic staff members who complete a degree from an accredited institution of higher education will be awarded a one-time incentive payment of 10,000 Baht for the attainment of a bachelor’s degree, 15,000 Baht for a master’s degree, and 20,000 Baht for a doctorate degree. If an employee is promoted due to the completion of a degree program, the University will adjust the employee's salary, unless his or her salary is currently within the appropriate range.

  1.  Training and Development:

The University encourages employees to discuss their performance evaluation and performance expectations with their immediate superior. Employees are also encouraged to ask for support in developing skills in areas where performance is lacking.

Staff development is incorporated into the University’s mission statement. Employees should identify opportunities for skills improvement, and other professional development. Support is available in the form of paid time off, special allowance for skills development, and reimbursement of training costs. Employees should discuss and seek approval before committing to any program.

In order to enhance the skills and knowledge of employees, the University will identify appropriate courses or topics based on a training needs survey.

Note:  Any public training and associated training materials or documents should be reported to the Human Resources Office for further reference and will be recorded on the employees employment record.
