Best 10 International Schools in Yangon

International Education in Yangon

⇩ Scroll directly to the list of top 10 best schools in Yangon ⇩

Since international sanctions were lifted from Myanmar in 2012, the country has seen an influx of expatriates. The country’s largest city, Yangon, offers a low cost of living, promising job opportunities and a new way of life in a newly thriving country for would-be expats.

Yangon has proven so popular among the expat community that there are now plenty of international schools to choose from in the city. Here, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about sending your child to an international school in Myanmar.

The national education system in Myanmar is based on the UK’s system. In Yangon, the majority of international schools also offer the British curriculum or International Baccalaureate. You will find a handful of schools offering American, other European and Asian curricula too.

It’s worth noting that new international schools are opening in Yangon on a yearly basis. So before too long, it’s likely that you’ll have a much wider variety of curricula to choose from.

Although the number of international schools in Yangon is rising, school places are still in high demand and relatively short supply. To ensure your child gets a place in your top choice of school, it’s best to apply early and complete as much of the documentation as possible before you apply.

All of the usual hurdles apply for the application process. You’ll be expected to show visas or proof of your right to reside in Myanmar, official identification, your child’s previous grades, and completed application forms. Your child may also be required to sit an entrance examination or attend an interview, depending on the school.

Compared to other Asian cities like Beijing, Singapore, and Tokyo, international school fees in Yangon are significantly cheaper. However, the quality of education is still very high.

You can expect all of the usual bells and whistles offered in international schools around the world including small classes, native speaking teachers, additional languages and extra curricular activities.

Since many of Yangon’s international schools are relatively new, you can also expect modern facilities and spacious campuses. Nearly all schools are located in the city itself, with very few on the outskirts or in neighbouring areas.

Some schools will offer transport to and from campus for students, but this is not the case everywhere. Due to the relatively central location of the majority of international schools, offering transport is often not necessary.

Most schools will cater for children from age 3 right up to 18, so whatever your child’s needs, they will be covered in Yangon. As Myanmar continues to develop, it’s possible that school prices and the cost of living will rise before long. So get there now to reap the benefits!
