This letter is to lay some information against the academic misconducts being performed in Doctoral Degree management in CAIC (CHINA-ASEAN INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE) in Dhurakij Pundit University, which have disturbed academic atmosphere and teaching disciplines.
Within the latest half year, more than 10 students have been allowed to register more than 2 or 3 dissertation courses (courses of Doctoral dissertation writing) in one single semester, and the scores were provided at the same semester immediately after their applications, which disobeyed the disciplines required by the department (1 or 2 courses in one single semester, and the scores can not be given unless the previous academic credits were passed). This kind of behavior is not only unmatched with the university requirements, but also disturbed the education process, showing their inequity, injustice and less-seriousness in education management.
Furthermore, most of the students are supposed to be suspended in their academic process as university required, for whose education VISAs had been paused because of their no-entry into Tailand for almost 2 years. However, the CAIC personally reduced their learning process, oversimplifying the Doctoral dissertation reviewing and supervisory in a sharply-condensed process and checking. These students are allowed to finish their Doctoral dissertation process (from the topic proposal-- Chapter 3-- Chapter 4-- final oral defense) in less than 6 months, which is not only unmatched with the academic nature, dissertation writing requirement, but also seriously disobeyed the time limits required for most other students.
Thirdly, the internal and external Committees of dissertation defense are under-qualified, requiring only one external expert to conduct the dissertation defense. And some of their internal supervisors have been directing more than 5 students at one same time to do so, cooperating their students to finish their full dissertations in less than 6 months. These free-riding or ride-by behaviors involved too much severe personal operations and disrespects in academic process.
All of these behaviors seriously broke the orders of teaching system, and seriously disobeyed the academic process, which have been challenging the disciplines and requirements in education management, raising the doubtness of academic rigour and scholarship conducted in this university.
In order to protect the equity, justice and seriousness in academic achieving and education management, this letter is to seek the department concerned to provide necessary examination, supervision and regulation for these serious misconducts in academic process
