The thesis is divided into five major chapters; in
addition to the Introduction and the Conclusion. The chapters
which constitute the plan of the thesis are as follows.

Chapter I considers the historical, administrative
and curricular aspects of the Thai university education system.
These aspects may be viewed as a context in which that education
takes place and in which some of the demands for that education
may be implied and thus structured.
Chapter II discusses at some length the complex of
Thai society's social values and also treats of the secularization
and change of the tra-,4ional Thai/Buddhist values. Values of
the society provide a basic frame of reference from which demands
for university education tend to result.

Chapter III is devoted to an examination of the demand
for university education that is generated by the parents/children
group. The chapter attempts to consider how some Thai social
values about what university education can do for this social
group determine the demand itself.

Chapter IV concerns itself with an investigation of
the demands which the business community and the government impose
upon the university education system. After discussing the demand
of the business for certain occupational categories of university
graduates, the chapter presents an analysis of Thailand's national
goals as a basic framework within which the government makes its
"manpower requirement“ demand for economic and social development.

Chapter V, the longest of all the chapters, deals with
the study of demands which the two samples totalling three hundred
students have made upon the Thai university education system.
The demands are based upon the findings of the questionnaire survey.
In this chapter some statistical techniques are used to analyse
data obtained from the questionnaire.
