Myanmar will be sending students to learn at a top university in Thailand starting in 2014.
Myanmar's University of Technology or Yadanabon Cyber City (YCC) will be signing a memorandum of understanding the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) in mid-2013 for a programme that will allow its students to study at YCC for three years and two years in Thailand.
"I think it would be the first time for a Myanmar university to send its students in groups to learn at a foreign university. Though our universities have linked up with foreign universities before, they have never sent this many students," an official of YCC said.
He said about 40 students who had completed their third year at the university will be chosen to study in Thailand.
“We chose AIT as it's the best among the universities in Bangkok," he added.
YCC is located near Pyinoolwin, a town about 67 km east of Mandalay, the country’s second largest city.
