A group of Thai university students and parents have complained to a leading Thai university that it is unfair to make them study English to enroll.

The group complaining at Rajamangala University of Technology Lanna accepted that English was important but it should not be a requirement to study Thai courses.

They called for justice and appealed to be allowed to register for courses without the requirement of passing the English test saying that this was damaging their education and spoiling their chances of joining the job market.

The case has rumbled on for years amid claims that the English course is a money-spinner for the university and not part of the established curriculum.

University director Silasiri Sangajit met with the group and promised to look into their grievances.
