School of Cosmetic Science

Thailand is primed to become a cosmetic and beauty hub of innovation in ASEAN. The School of Cosmetic Science, Mae Fah Luang University aims to produce graduates to support the manpower for the growing cosmetic industry in Thailand and around the world. Our cosmetic science curricula are designed to provide fundamental, advanced knowledge as well as to keep students updated with the rapidly evolving cosmetic industry. The School uses the English language as a taught medium and was the first in Thailand to offer such degrees at an educational institution including Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. levels. It is an ideal place to open a gateway to becoming an expert in beauty advisors and the cosmetic industry.
