Krirk University was first opened at the Ratchadamnoen Building in 1952 by Dr.KrirkManglabruk (1915-1978), a renowned educator both in Thailand and abroad. He received an honorary doctorate in education from David & Elkins College, USA. The purpose of setting up university in the early stages was to conduct English teaching only due to his high competence in English Language in both pedagogy and work experience. Undoubtedly, he was the first Thai person who taught modern English that aimed at students to acquire language principles and be able to use English effectively. The name of the institution according to the license at that time was “Language and Professional School", but people had consistently recognized the name of the school as Dr.Krirk School.
