Officials present from Prince of Songkla University Pattani campus were Assistant Professor Nifarid Raden Ahmad, Vice President for Students Development and Cultures Associate Professor Prathana Kanaovakun, Vice President for Academic and International Affairs Assistance Professor Arin Saidi, Assistant President for International Affairs Assistant Professor Awang Lanui and Mr Chatchai Ratanachai, Vice President for Outreach and International Affairs from Hat Yai campus.
During the discussion, the Prince of Songkla University Pattani Camnus conveyed their interest on Brunei's strength in the methodology of teaching the English Language to students as the university is currently struggling in teaching the English Language to Thai students.
It is hoped that students from Pattani campus could study in UBD for one semester in order to expose them to Brunei's culture and also learn the English Language. Meanwhile, UBD students are also welcome to study a semester in Prince of Songkla University Pattani Campus.
The Thai university also expressed the possibility of sending Thai teachers to UBD to help teach the Thai Language which Dr Yabit of UBD openly welcomed since UBD will be conducting Thai Language classes starting August this year. Issues on this matter will be further discussed.
