More About ETCAsia

“In the last six months there have been significant changes at ETCAsia. Not only have we taken our third intake of students and increased our numbers of both local and international students. We have also outgrown our premises.

When the college first started all we needed was two lecture rooms, some walls for bookcases of many books and a location from which faculty, administrative staff and volunteers could work. However, since then we’ve added two more fulltime faculty and their books as well as more students.”
