Jun 24, 2011

Ministry of Education will open one teacher training college and proposals of three private colleges are under review. The teacher training college will be opened within the 1oth Five Year Plan.

The Education Minister, Lyonpo Thakur Singh Powdyel said,” the teacher training college is for the in-service candidates,” he added, “we have identified teaching faculty and they are undergoing training.”

Disadvantages of the students travelling abroad for further studies were raised in the National Council on Thursday.

“The tuition fees, travelling and living cost is high abroad,” the MP of Gasa, Sangay Khandu added, “it will help to retain money in the economy.”

To address the outflow of money, the Royal University of Bhutan will admit 80 private candidates starting this year in colleges in Bhutan. The establishment education city is another means to help students pursue studies in the country.

Thousands of students study in colleges in India. In the 2005 the figure was 2,000 including students on government scholarships.
