Background History of Bago University

Bago Regional College was founded on 27th March 1977. At that time, the college buildings were still under construction. Therefore, students had to attend their classes at No. 1 Basic Education High School, Bago from 27th March 1977 to 30th June 1977 together with Basic Education students in two shifts.

Then, on 1st July 1977, it was moved to No. 4 Basic Education High School, Bago (Basic Education Middle School, Bago at present) as Bago Regional College.

Bago Regional College was restructured as a two-year College like other regional Colleges on 30th November 1981.

On 17th August 1992, it became Bago Degree College in Ward 8/9 of Oaktha Myothit on the eastern side of Yangon-Mandalay highway. Then it was upgraded as Bago University on 13 th June 2011. The campus of Bago University is 718.65 acres wide and it is five miles from Bago.
