Myanmar: a new border for international enrolment
There may be few Myanmar college graduates going abroad at the present juncture, but policy changes and a burgeoning economies mean that this is a fast expanding college graduate school. Now is the right age for educational establishments in the US and beyond, say Mark Ashwill, CEO of Capstone Vietnam, and Deepak Neopane, City College Yangon founding father and CEO of Academics International.
Myanmar lies between two of the world's biggest economies, India and China, and has a significant geo-political importance in Southeast Asia. In 1965, when Singapore achieved sovereignty, Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew wished Singapore to make up for Myanmar's economy in 20 years. From 1962 to 2013, the military reigned, restarting the economy and making Myanmar impoverished and isolating it from the otherworld.
More than 20 years of Western imposed red-tape have caused further damage to the industry. It has been on the move since the liberalisation of politics and the economies, the introduction of a multi-party system of democracy and the abolition of trade restrictions, and it is opening up to the outside world in an amazing way. For the coming years, international organizations such as the International Monetary Fund are forecasting robust and stable in-myanmar.
With over 50 million inhabitants, a border region that needs to develop in almost all areas, a young and inexpensive workforce and its geopolitical position, Myanmar has become a target for investments from all over the globe. There is an exponential increase in the need for skilled labour. Locals have seen the professional growth potential available to those with appropriate training.
With a fast expanding business, rationalised visas and the prospects of a better careers for their young, families have the means and the will to spend on their schooling. Rather than send their offspring to state colleges where pupils receive red tuition and class rooms are stuffed with up to 60-70 pupils, more and more families spend more than $10,000 a year on home schooling in Myanmar.
These are all privately owned alumni who will go abroad for their higher educational careers. Over the past 50 years, the country's armed forces have made relatively little investment in the higher learning system. Very few high schools and academies offer these high schools students an apprenticeship, let alone in the fields of study they wish to study, such as economics and technology.
A lot of our college and college graduates go abroad, but most of all to neighbouring states such as Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. Costs of training in neighbouring states are rising, but these states do not offer high-quality training at the level of the West. Although the US is a popular target for studying abroad, more Myanmar refugee campuses are going to the UK and Australia because of their aggressively demanding advertising campaigns.
The right and early support for US training can reverse this tendency. The shortage of information, business penalties and difficulties in getting a study permit are the major causes why few US undergraduates have chosen the US in the past. But since the US has lifted its stimulus packages in 2013, it is simpler to obtain a visas and there is more information about university trade shows and information events, which has led to a drastic rise in the number of US college graduates.
Approximately 25,000 Myanmar college graduates are enrolled oversee. Thailand is the foremost foreign destination for Myanmar student, with approximately 8,000 foreigners a year. Further goals in Asia are Singapore, Japan, China and Malaysia with about 5,000, 3,500, 3,000, 1,000 Ph.
Some Myanmar scholars are also enrolled in India, Hong Kong and Korea. In the West, the main educational goals are Great Britain (with around 2,000 students), the USA (1,600) and Australia (600). In Myanmar there are about 30 international and domestic colleges (and this number is growing), all of which use a West European syllabus.
Most of them have withdrawn from the system of government teaching, which means that they all plan to go abroad to university. Whilst the final years were small, enrolments in the lower years are much higher, which means that more and more enrolments will be abroad as they find their way through the learning pipelines.
Parenting, the most important policy maker, relies on educational trade shows, ambassadorial assets and agencies to find out more about US and university. Indeed, when they actually get together with university officials, they have more faith that their children will get a good educational background in a secure area.
Burma is a reminder of Vietnam 15 to 20 years ago in several ways, among them the growth in cosmopolitanism, increased FDI, increased interest in studying abroad and increased solvency. Myanmar, like Vietnam, is set to become an important resource for international college undergraduates.
According to the SEVIS March 2017 upgrade, 1,594 Myanmar universities are currently enrolling at all grades in the USA. 9 percent are registered in four-year secondary school, 19. The Boston Consulting Group's 2016 survey found Myanmar's population to be the most optimistic about their futures, followed by the Namas.
Recent MasterCard research showed that millennia from developing markets such as Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam were the most optimistic, in comparison to more advanced markets such as Singapore and Malaysia, where there was a high degree of scepticism. There is still a high level of interest in studying abroad because the national higher learning system is inadequate, the reputations of international higher learning establishments for excellence, the prestigious nature of a degree from abroad and the capacity of the parent to pay for studying abroad are increasing.
