Since its inception in 2001, Brac University has become one of the most reputed educational institutions in Bangladesh. We have focused on generating new knowledge and promoting critical thinking amongst our students, graduating more than 7,000 young men and women during this time.
Brac University is ranked highly in this country. This is a great achievement. However, in the global landscape of higher education, we are still off the radar. We are behind the world's best in our practices and standards. But we do not intend to stay that way. We choose to aim ambitiously high. We shall continuously improve this University. We shall benchmark ourselves against the best and eventually become one of them. Achieving such a goal demands a long vision, a brave heart and an unwavering commitment. And it is an undertaking that requires the dedication of the entire community of stakeholders. This is surely not an easy journey, nor is it quick. We may not be able to get there during my tenure as Vice Chancellor, but I am sure we will get there. And we shall now take the first step.
Each semester, BRAC University is proud to honor academically talented and exceptionally skilled students with a variety of scholarships and awards. The university annually awards more than 100 million takas as scholarships to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
BRAC University’s Residential Semester (RS) at Savar campus is unique amongst higher education experiences in Bangladesh. The RS offers a holistic curriculum based on the principle of ‘experiential learning’, which cultivates a broad range of soft skills and qualities, to compliment the theoretical development that students undergo.
The Residential Semester takes place at a specially designed campus in Savar, which provides a support system that aids students in becoming confident and self-reliant.
