Study in Myanmar
Universities in Myanmar remain highly centralized and state run. Teaching revolves around textbook instruction with little to no research focus. Universities offer bachelor's degree programs, master's degree programs, and doctorate degree programs. The higher education system follows a 4-1-3 year program with 4 years for a bachelor's degree, one year of qualifying classes, and 3 years for a master's degree.
Myanmar has 163 higher education universities. All of the universities are state funded with a funding for higher education for a fiscal year.
University entrance derives from students' tenth grade standard examination marks. The Ministry of Education (Burma) runs the matriculation exams, which occur at the same time annually around country. About 300,000 students take the matriculation exam each year. Some universities set a minimum exam score for students acceptance in the university. Minimum scores vary depending on the university, but medical schools demand the highest exam scores.
A Guide to study aboard in Myanmar
- Plan In Advance: Because of Myanmar’s new political situation and the smaller number of programs, it is extra important to start your study abroad preparations well in advance. Some study abroad programs in Myanmar have deadlines nearly a year in advance and spots can fill up quickly.
- Time Difference: Myanmar is in a slightly unique time zone which is the UTC +6:30, that’s right there is a half hour in there so be aware when planning calls or meetings back home.
- USD: This can be both an advantage and a difficulty. USD is the most common currency for tourist activities. This is expanding slightly, but they are extremely strict with the quality of the bills. If you bring bills from home make sure they are in impeccable condition.
