Parami Institute also offers a rotation of evening courses at our campus in Yangon, geared towards working professionals and current students enrolled elsewhere. These practical, single-subject courses focus on enhancing specific critical and creative skills through the same engaging, dynamic pedagogical methods used in the PLP classroom.
