91-year-old woman bags bachelor’s degree in Thailand by Noblex: 2:10 pm On Aug 09
A 91-year-old woman became the oldest person to graduate from university in Thailand on Wednesday, receiving her bachelor’s degree from King Maha Vajiralongkorn. Escorted by her family, Kimlun Jinakul travelled more than 700 km from the northern province of Phayao to Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University, near Bangkok, to receive her bachelor’s degree in human ecology.
“It has always been my dream to continue my studies,” Kimlun told local TV station Thai PBS. She said that she had finished junior high school but couldn’t continue her education at the time because her family couldn’t finance it.
The university said Kimlun had not received any special treatment in terms of grading. In fact, she failed half of her courses and had to retake examinations several times.
“ The university provided me with a lot of convenience, ” Kimlun said .
“ They allocated rooms on the ground floor for me so I did not have to climb the stairs . ”
The university is the first in Thailand to offer distance learning to elderly people .
