The universities of Myanmar and Thailand plan to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for cooperation in the education sector very soon, according to Myeik University.
Myanmar’s Myeik University and Thailand’s Phetchaburi Rajabhat University will ink the MoU during the last week of January and the first week of February, 2019. The MoU will include extensive collaboration in education, cultural exchange programmes and research.
Delegates of seven universities from the Rajabhat Universities Network visited Myeik University on Friday, 30 November, prior to signing the MoU. On the first day of the study tour, the Thai delegates and faculty members of Myeik University discussed raising bilateral cooperation in 13 courses offered by Myeik University through a sector-by-sector approach. Dr Ni Ni Oo, rector of Myeik University, said the key objectives of signing MoUs with overseas universities are to raise the skills of local students so they might assist in participating in the development of their region, as well as improve their employment opportunities.
Students and faculty members of Myeik University will also attend a study tour in Thailand for the third time.
Myeik University has signed eight MoUs with foreign universities and organisations, conducting research in Myeik, a city in Taninthayi Region located on the coast of an island on the Andaman Sea. Its activities include conservation of the natural environment, prevention of illegal wildlife trade and preservation of water resources.—Khine Htoo (Translated by Khaing Thanda Lwin)
