The ministry of sports is planning to introduce a four-year graduate course in sports to raise the standard of sports in the country.
Dagon and Yadanarpon universities are primarily in consideration for launching the course starting from 2012-13 academic year.
On successful completion of the course, students will get a Bachelor of Science (Sports) degree.
Initially, outstanding athletes and those who have passed the matriculation examination from Sports and Physical Education Department in Yangon and Mandalay will be offered the course.
If the number of applicants goes up later, students will be enrolled on the basis of entrance marks.
Teachers will be picked from among former selected athletes and sports experts for the course.
