The Australian Trade Commission’s office in Yangon is pleased to announce its first ever Australian Education Exhibition in Myanmar.

The Australia: Future Unlimited Education Exhibition Myanmar 2014 will be held at the Sule Shangri-La hotel in Yangon on Sunday 27 July 2014, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Twenty-three leading universities and colleges from all parts of Australia will take part in the Exhibition, providing Myanmar students and their parents with the opportunity to learn all they need to know about studying in Australia, and to discuss their study objectives and options directly with student counsellors from Australia.

Australia is one of the world’s leading destinations for young people who wish to discover their future potential through an international education. Each year, more than 400,000 students from around the world choose to study in Australia, including around 500 students from Myanmar.

The Exhibition program on 27 July will include information seminars on Australia’s education system, Australia’s student visa application process, and the Australian Government’s Australia Awards scholarships program.
