FAITH & HISTORY

Faith

We are a Seventh-day Adventist institution of higher education. As a faith-based school, we place much importance on holistic education and Christian values. In this type of integrated learning, we train, nurture and support our students’ mental, physical, social and spiritual growth that equip them better at their future workplaces and life to come after completing their studies. Our values-oriented campus activities and caring environment also inspire students, faculty and staff at Asia-Pacific to have a heart of service for mankind. These core values form the foundation of Adventist education philosophy, which Asia-Pacific adopts in its operation. To find out more about the Seventh-day Adventist belief, click here.

History

The new international institution based in Muak Lek was constructed after it was certain the College in Singapore would close. The new school combined the quality of the international programs of Southeast Asia Union College, and retained as well as developed the Thai programs already operating by Mission College, Muak Lek. This institution also became responsible for continuing the nursing program in Bangkok. In January 1997, the development of the new facilities and academic programs commenced with much urgency. The first new degree following an international type curriculum received government approval in early 1999. By early 2001, the College offered eight international majors that were officially approved by the Ministry of University Affairs. By July 2002, the last of the building developments and the extensive campus landscaping work had been completed.It was natural for the institution to seek university status following its success in attracting international students. This success was recognized in 2005 on the receipt of the Prime Minister’s Export Award. The University status was achieved in 2009.
