Prospective Students

Scholarship information for prospective students and career counselling session

Information sessions for prospective applicants are held several times every year. If you are considering applying for a Prospect Burma scholarship, or if you would like to know more about Prospect Burma, you are welcome to attend. Please note that we have very limited places for each session, so you MUST book into a session before hand, if you want to attend. Over the application period, which runs from November to the following January, we hold sessions once a week.

Sessions will be held every Tuesday at 3:00pm in the Yangon office, starting on the 27 November 2018 and will run until the end of January 2019.

Brief outline of the sessions:

  • An introduction to an information about Prospect Burma scholarships, entry requirements and University admissions
  • Experiences of Prospect Burma
  • Q & A

If you are interested in attending, please contact shwe@prospectburma.org to book a place. If you have any questions about these sessions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Things for you to consider, before attending an information session:

Financial planning for study

You are required to check how much you need to study abroad per year. We recommend you research the following expenses before you apply for a Prospect Burma scholarship.

  • Tuition fees per year, for your desired course
  • Accommodation and travel fees
  • Food, and other expenses

Students Visa information

In order to attend Universities abroad, you are required to have a valid passport and a student visa. You must obtain a passport, and your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months after your arrival to the country you will study in. If that is not the case, please have it extended or apply for a new one. You also need to obtain a “Student Visa” stamped in your passport before arriving in the country you will study in, in accordance with the Immigration Laws of that country.

Your career – your education

Before applying for a scholarship, you should have a clear idea of what you want to study and why, as well as have an idea of the long term career goals that your further education can help you to achieve. We can talk to you more about this at the information session.
