Welcome to Royal University of Agriculture

In the era of globalization, Southeast Asia is gearing up to become an attractive, exciting and knowledge -based regional entity. As the first leading agricultural University in Cambodia, Royal University of Agriculture (RUA) contributes to the nation's regional and global competitiveness. RUA provides education and research that effectively develops intellectual capabilities turning young talents into successful professionals and responsible citizens.

 As the Rector, I am very delighted and proud to learn what RUA has achieved since its establishment in 1964. Undoubtedly, Royal  University of Agriculture is a remarkable accredited academic institution offering quality-oriented, modern and competitive study  programs, not only in the traditional fields, but also in the emerging disciplines to meet contemporary as well as impending national and  regional needs. Courses range from Agronomy, Animal Science, Veterinary Medicine, Forestry, Fisheries, Food Science and Technology,  Post-Harvest Technology, Land Management, Engineering to Agricultural Economics and Community Development - and we are eager to constantly extend our scope.

RUA is aiming at attracting the best dynamic students and the most highly qualified lecturers to continuously strive for excellence. Learning at RUA inspires and enables students to grow intellectually, to be well equipped for work life and to contribute effectively to society. The increasing number of cooperation’s and collaborations with institutions in Asia Europe,  Americas and beyond offers great opportunities for both students and lecturers to gain first-hand international experience. 

RUA's strong integration and international focus makes students sensitive to other cultures and able to quickly adapt to multicultural working environments. To prepare for the rise of world society, we use Khmer and English as languages of instruction and offer Bachelor, Master, PhD scholarships, exchange programs and internships abroad. Qualified and successful students will receive an internationally recognized degree from our partners abroad. At the same time, however, RUA actively promotes Cambodia's and Southeast Asia's agricultural practices and cultural traditions.

Our spacious campus, located in the environmental friendly Phnom Penh's South complex of Khan Dangkor, offers supreme facilities, compassionate support services and close relationships between students and lecturers creating a friendly, warm and inspiring atmosphere. Joining the "RUA family" provides a home away from home and makes you feel confident, optimistic and ready to face the challenges of the 21st century. Come and join us on this exciting journey into the future.
