YANGON, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Most outstanding students in Myanmar, including those who passed the matriculation examination and standing top-ten, sought university education abroad over the past five years, the Local Biweekly Eleven News reported in this week's issue.

According to survey, these students were attending degree courses in foreign countries on their own arrangement, while others are on scholarship program.

"Within five years, young people could afford to go abroad for their studies. Not only the top-ten students but also other outstanding students can do so," said a retired vice rector of the Yangon Institute of Education.

The number of Myanmar students pursuing education in foreign countries has been increasing vividly since the academic year 2007- 08.

According to the education circle, the famous No. 1 Dagon High School in Yangon, which has high annual exam success rate, had over 10 students going abroad for the study.

The number of young people, especially university graduates seeking to go abroad out of various reasons including employment, has also been on the rise in Myanmar.

These graduate students are set to make compensation for their degrees obtained when applying for passports and the rate of compensation is based on their education level or the degrees they have acquired.
