In Myanmar, the DAAD primarily supports the training of future university lecturers and of academically trained specialists and managers from industry. Subject-related partnerships between higher education institutions and the further training of university managers are also increasingly in demand.

More and more German universities are focusing their attention on Myanmar and entering into cooperation agreements, including the University of Cologne, the University of Göttingen and a number of Baden-Württemberg universities. Since 2015, the state of Baden-Württemberg has supported academic exchange between institutions in Baden-Württemberg and Myanmar and has also awarded its own scholarships. Numerous new projects and cooperation activities have emerged from this initiative.

From 2012 to 2014, the DAAD funded a long-term lectureship in geography at Yangon University, which reinforced regular academic exchange with the University of Cologne.

Training courses for university managers are in high demand from universities in Myanmar. The DAAD has responded to this need with its DIES programmes.

The DAAD also supports the higher education reform process in Myanmar and especially the implementation of university autonomy by conducting different workshops.

Alumni of German universities in Myanmar

There are around 700 alumni of German universities in Myanmar who are now successfully employed in the fields of science, business and politics. They are the ideal contacts for anyone interested in pursuing higher education studies or research in Germany. The alumni have joined together to form the German Alumni Association Myanmar (GAAM). The GAAM holds an alumni seminar on a specific subject every year with support from the DAAD.
