New university planned for capital

A university dedicated to arts and science degrees will be built in Nay Pyi Taw, which will mean prospective bachelor degree students will be able to study closer to home, writes Pyae Thet Phyo for the Myanmar Times.

“The university will be built. We are currently looking at land to build to it on,” said U Tun Tin, a member of Nay Pyi Taw Council, adding that a plot of land in Pobbathiri township has been earmarked as the probable site for the new university.

Calls for a new university in the nation’s capital have come from a number of sources recently. A letter requesting the construction of a new university in Nay Pyi Taw was submitted in July to State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi by MPs from five of the townships within the capital’s territory.
