This present research investigates the politeness strategies used by Myanmar Universities students while they are trying to request something from others. In order to collect the primary data, the researcher conducted surveys 200 students from 12 Universities during 2019-2022 academic year. The collected data are classified in accordance with the theory of politeness strategies proposed by Brown and Levinson. The aim of this research is to examine whether there is significant difference between male and female students in the use of politeness strategies and the correlation between language, gender and culture. The results of statistical analysis reveal that male students (over 60%) prefer to use negative politeness strategies and female students from Myanmar prefer to use positive politeness strategies more than negative.
