Education Beyond Borders: The Role of
International Universities in Myanmar's Education
Date: November 22, 2023
Time: 7:30 PM - 9 PM Myanmar Time
As part of the seminar series on the post-coup higher education landscape, Spring University Myanmar (SUM) will be organizing a panel on
“Education Beyond Borders: The Role of International Universities in Myanmar's Education”
In the wake of the military coup in Myanmar, the higher education sector has been thrown into turmoil, resulting in an unprecedented disruption that has left millions of students at risk of losing access to quality education. Over the past two years, we have witnessed a crucial response from international universities, which have stepped up to support Myanmar students to the best of their abilities.
In this webinar, we'll dive into the various education initiatives these universities have launched for Myanmar's youth. We'll also examine the significant challenges and obstacles that students from Myanmar encounter while pursuing their continuous education. Moreover, the webinar will not only underscore the existing endeavors but also engage in an exploration of potential strategies for future university collaborations, aiming to extend the range of educational services accessible to the youth of Myanmar.
