Local students from Myeik city usually come to university on foot or by motorcycle, motorcycle taxi, or car/van share. Others who stay at nearby hostels can walk leisurely to our university in five/ten minutes .
Myeik University is equally open to both boys and girls. However, in all specialisations, except Geology, girls exceed boys in number.
Approximately half the students are from Myeik city and its near-by environs. The remainder are from villages in the surrounding countryside. Residential facilities are provided for these latter students but space is limited.
Students can join basic or advanced ICT classes run by volunteer students who are trained by Kazuo Sugihara, a computer scientist from Hawaii, who is now volunteering at Myeik University.
Field trips are very valuable and experiencing that can be helpful in building friendship, teamwork, time management and raises critical thinking skills.
