Although our scholarships programme is our largest programme, Prospect Burma has three programmes, which work together to offer you the best support.
Access to Learning
In order to study abroad you need certain skills and qualifications, including a recognised English Language qualification like IELTS or TOEFL, computing skills and critical thinking skills. To help more people from Myanmar gain these skills, Prospect Burma has developed our Access to Learning programme. From 2019 we are running the first Access to Learning programme out of our Yangon Office itself, called the Bridging Programme. People from rural and remote communities in Myanmar will attend residential training programme in Yangon, where they will stay for the duration of their study. They will receive intensive English Language training, as well as provisions for travel and accommodation during their stay, and at the end of the course undertake an exam at the British Council. Those who pass successfully will receive a passing IELTS score which can be used as a pre-requisite in applying for any international university. From 2020 you will be able to apply for this programme online, please continue to check this page for updates.
Learning to Leadership
Our main scholarship programme is actually called Learning to Leadership. This is the programme you apply to to undertake international study at university. Click here for more information.
Change in the Community
When our graduates return to Myanmar after finishing their studies we know they need support in developing networks and accessing job opportunities. Our Change in the Community programme is growing, with the aim of helping provide this support.
Our Alumni Conference, held in November 2019, offered discussion panels and networking opportunities and was open for all of our alumni to attend.
In 2020 we will be launching our Alumni Regional Cluster Hubs, or ARCHs. These will be alumni groups spread around the country, with the aim of encouraging support and mentoring, skills sharing and networking. The first two ARCHs will be in Yangon and Hpa-An, in 2020. At the alumni conference (details above) we will start discussing how the ARCHs can be best structured to be of the most use to our alumni. This will be an exciting opportunity to share your thoughts and have your voice heard, so if you are interested please confirm your place at the alumni conference and continue to check this page for updates.
