Online Courses

Every semester, Parami offers synchronous (face-to-face) online courses in various fields of discipline such as humanities, social Sciences, arts, and sciences.  The Institute specifically chooses courses that are not easily available in other commercial establishments, but are conducive to the learners’ overall development including the development of soft skills that are critical to the 21st century workplace and critical reasoning abilities. Although the courses are non-credit bearing, they are taught by university faculty and industry specialists. 

 

Participants have a wide range of courses to choose from based on their interests. The courses tend to be 8 to 12 weeks long, and are conducted in English. Parami charges nominal tuition fees for these courses to encourage participant commitment and retention. Below are a few select courses that have been offered within the Parami Institute of Continuing Education. For the current offerings, please check the Institute’s Facebook page.

TESTIMONIALS

“I learned a lot through group discussions. However, I learned the most through listening to classmates’ sharing what they talked about in their separate groups in the main session, and I also learned through the teachers answering my classmates’ questions during the class. And, of course, I could not leave out the feedback from my teachers. Those are invaluable."

Ca Hlei Lang

"The teaching method is active and participatory and induces critical thinking. The learning environment is non-judgmental and people are willing to hear your thoughts. I have attended basic education and university...even asking questions, some people [in the class] would judge you for asking questions."

Zaw Zaw Aung

"We were surprised that the Parami event created an account for us and also to access the Canvas because it is just two months (short course) you are not enrolled full-time. It is like studying for a foreign degree or accessing the student portal abroad. Thanks to the parami email account, I can access the New York Times [for free], to which I have a subscription until December. With the Parami VPN, I can access articles and journals with access restrictions on google."

Zin Zin Khaing

“From my MBA student life, I mostly learned about the microeconomic concept like how to manage and plan businesses, etc. I thought that the globalization course would generally be about the connection between these countries, but in reality, it is actually about the introduction to political economy. [In that] The macroeconomics attracted me a lot. It is also very relevant to Myanmar's current situation, like what we should do about Myanmar's macroeconomics policy... It was such an eye-opening moment for me.”
