SCHOOL
Myanmar's school have a standard education curriculum with seven years of compulsory primary education and another five years in secondary education. All students are required to attend school beginning from the age of five. Myanmar had 23 universities in the year 1993/1994, 10 two-year collages in the year 1993/1994 having 260,277 students and 6,696 teachers.

educatio01       In addition. there are 142 technical and vocational schools with 31,164 students and 2,342 teachers. There is also an academy for development of national groups with 964 students and 92 teachers. There are 36,499 primary schools: 2,062 middle schools and 858 high schools. Currently, there are 166,412 basic education teachers, teaching 8.15 million basic education students, which gives Myanmar 93% literacy, one of the highest literacy rates in the Far East.

      Many new independent schools have sprung up recently teaching English, particularly business English. Other independent schools are teaching computers and other high technology subjects.

      There may be good opportunities for foreign universities and colleges to set up joint ventures with local partners for foreign universities.

      In Malaysia, some British universities have entered into 'Twinning' agreements with Malaysia colleges, whereby the first two years can be spent studying in Malaysia and the last year in the United Kingdom. If British universities were to set up similar Twinning arrangements with Myanmar universities, costs to students would be reduced and even more Myanmar students could obtain British degrees.

      Now that Myanmar are permitted to maintain US dollar accounts in Myanmar Banks and these balances are starting to accumulate, Myanmar will increasingly be able to send their children to be educated overseas.

Foreign investors should consider the following educational statistics and remember that with such high rates of literacy and a good command of English, employees can be expected to learn more quickly than Vietnamese and workers from P.R.C. whose command of English is not as good: remember also that most of the best technical books are written in English, enabling workers to become proficient more quickly.
