UGC Warns for admission in 10 private universities
The University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh alerted guardians and students about 10 private universities for unapproved campuses, conflicts of board of trustees or otherwise flouting the Private University Act-2010.
The commission said students and guardians should seek information about these universities before deciding to admission. The UGC have recommended to the Education Ministry that they take action against universities that are not abiding by the law.
The universities whose boards are driven by conflict are IBAIS University, Sylhet International University and Brittania University. These three universities are operating on campuses that have not been approved, but continue to function under the aegis of court orders.
The government earlier cancelled the licenses of America Bangladesh University but they remain in operation under favorable court orders. Six universities are running at unapproved campuses, the commission said. Universities are: BGC Trust University; International Islamic University, Chittagong; Southern University; University of Science and Technology, Chittagong; Queens University; and University of Information Technology and Sciences. America Bangladesh University have obtained court orders in their favor.
