Voices from some of our alumni
"This four-month program inspired me to become a lifelong learner. It motivated me to know things that I used to ignore before. The most important thing is that it built my confidence so that I am ready to face my new chapter in life. And I will always be proud of myself for being a graduate of Parami."
"The most important skill that Parami has taught me is interdisciplinary analysis. I now have the ability to view and analyse the issues from different perspectives and angles. I can apply these skills which I learned from Parami in my work place. Furthermore, I will utilize them whenever necessary in my lifelong pursuit of knowledge."
"Parami taught me and other students to be responsible citizens of the country, in terms of not being ignorant of the world and its issues that are happening. Skills like critical thinking can be used in further researches, no matter what we would do in the future."
Than Toe Aung
"The most important thing I learned at Parami is science. Coming from a background of political science, there are a lot of things that are best explained by science which I can relate back to my own field of study. Studying science and evolution theory helps me understand about politics so much better."
Kyi Nu San
"I chose Parami because I was certain that this institute would help my future studies and my career. Moreover, the teaching style is special and better than the other institutes in Yangon and I really like that."
"The most important thing I have learnt at Parami is finding the solution of a problem in many different ways through different perspectives and angles."
Su Myat Moe
"I have learned that I should never stop learning. I should always be ready to learn new things that I come across in life. I should never set boundaries for any kind of knowledge."
Nay Wyne Aung
"Parami taught me how to articulate well, how to present my ideas in a more structured manner, and how to give constructive criticism. Parami is the best place to learn interdisciplinary analysis and liberal arts education without going abroad."
Htet Arkar Kyaw
"Life is a journey of learning. I believe that the skills I have learned from Parami will support me in my future of lifelong learning. The most important thing I have learned at Parami is a combination of reading, writing and critical thinking skills."
Chan Maung Aye
"The great lesson I have learned is we must push the limits of ourselves to improve further. I will directly use the skills I have learned by working at an organization such as UNDP."
May Thant Cyn
"I learned that it is as hard as it is important to listen. Accepting when others have different opinions from you is also a valuable lesson. I chose Parami to experience what the liberal arts are like."
Impact on our alumni
Leadership and Liberal Education Skills
Parami Institute has conducted pre-program and post-program evaluations of first cohort of students’ critical thinking and articulate communication skills. The figures below witness our students’ improvement.
All our alumni looking for jobs have gained job placements right after graduation and are now working in various local and international companies while other graduates are furthering their studies in undergraduate and graduate schools.
We are also very pleased to see our graduates earning, on average, at least 1.5 times more than the average monthly salary of K480,000 earned by those in mid-level management in Myanmar, as stated in The Myanmar Times (July 7, 2017).
Congratulations again to our First Cohort of Alumni on their journeys to create impactful changes in Myanmar.
