About Yangon University
Established as an affiliated college of the University of Calcutta in 1878, Rangoon University was once one of the most prestigious universities in Asia, attracting students from across the region. Throughout history, students and alumni have spearheaded much of Myanmar’s political activism, notably the protests against British colonial rule and the independence movement. After WWII the military authorities ended the University’s autonomy, placing it under central government control and changed the language of education from English to Burmese.
