Non-discrimination Policies of WU among Transgenders

LGBT students receive equal access to university services like all students e.g., scholarships, government student loan fund, university dormitory, dressing freely according to one’s gender identity for attending classes and for graduation ceremony. LGBT students also have the same constitutional liberties as all Thai citizens, such as applying and voting for elections of the administrative organization, student council, and student dormitory committee, and elections at different levels of the country.

In addition, WU provides spaces and rights for LGBT students to freely participate in and organize events at the university.
