Pannasastra University of Cambodia

Pannasastra University of Cambodia is the country’s leading university. Pannasastra University is the first higher learning institution in Cambodia that provides English based education in all subjects, and is officially authorized and accredited by the Royal Government of Cambodia to grant degrees in Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. to qualified students.

Pannasastra University was established in 1997 by a group of Cambodian expatriates from the United States of America, whose objective was to enhance the potential and development of Cambodia’s human capital and thus help the process of “nation building”. Pannasastra University started with pre-academic programs taught in English in 1997 and since 2000 it has been accredited to run full academic programs in business, management, economics, law and government, humanities, science, communication, medicine, and culture.

Pannasastra University adopts international standard curriculum generally used by American and other developed countries’ colleges and universities (combining General Education and Foundation Courses with Major Core subjects). This academic model assures that credit units and degrees earned at PUC will be recognized by and equivalent to those of other accredited universities abroad. Pannasastra University aims to build the capacity of the people of Cambodia and that of the region – through the teaching of profession, high morality, ethics, social responsibility and wisdom. It provides high-quality academic study and research and promotes international standards in social sciences and business.
