Universities of Myanmar and the United States are seeking cooperation in the field of education and a memorandum of understanding between the Yangon University and the Johns Hopkins University is expected to be signed soon, state media reported.

Discussions have been made between acting Education Minister Myo Myint and visiting Director of the Asian Studies Program at the Johns Hopkins University of the US with regard to the cooperation.

Their discussions specifically covered opening of MRES (Master of Research) course for international relations at the International Centre of Excellence (ICE) in Yangon university campus, learning

Myanmar course by students of the Johns Hopkins University at the Yangon University of Foreign Language and opening of electronic library at the ICE.

The technical cooperation covers giving training to medical staff of the Yangon University of Medicine for human resource development, advancement of teaching methods of medicine and programs for capacity building.

Under the MoU, US Bart Liberal Art College will also be opened in Myanmar this year with four-year degree courses to be conducted for Myanmar students.

Universities of Northern Iowa and Western Illinois will also open their overseas campuses for some post-graduate courses in Myanmar in the middle of this year, local media reported last week.

Besides US universities, Myanmar is also cooperating with those of Japan, Australia and Germany to develop its education system, human resources and cultural sectors.
