The first Australian education exhibition in Myanmar will be held on July 27 where information relating to studying in Australia will be shared, an Australian embassy official said.
“Business studies are becoming more significant in Myanmar,” Mark Wood, trade commissioner and counsellor of the embassy said.
The exhibition will be held from 10am to 5pm in Sule Shangrila Hotel in Yangon where the students and parents will learn about living and studying in Australia and will be able to meet directly with student councillors from Australia to discuss the details.
Australia is one of the top destinations for young people around the world, attracting more than 400,000 international students including 500 Myanmar students every year, Wood said.
The exhibition will include seminars on Australian education system, student visa application process of Australia and Australian scholarship programs.
International education will provide students with the opportunity to learn education systems abroad and adopt and apply those in their home country, Wood said.
Representatives from 23 Australian universities and colleges will participate in the event, while CB bank will be a co-sponsor.
“We are taking part upon their request. We also want to provide banking services related to transactions for the students studying abroad. We are glad to help even if it’s through another bank’s channel,” told Ma Ohn Mar Aye, assistant general manager of media and marketing department of CB.
