Higher Education in Bangladesh
The higher education in Bangladesh focuses on general studies, business studies, engineering, medicine, or technology. There are a few other disciplines but medicine and general studies meet the greatest need in the private sector once students complete their university requirements. The higher education system is divided into 3 different types of colleges:
1) Public-government owned and subsidized
2) Private-private section owned
3) International- operated and funded by international organizations
In the past most higher education was owned by the government only. In recent years, however, there has been an influx of privately owned institutions that focus on more liberal areas of study, including women’s studies and politics. While their economy is always in a state of poverty, they work hard and struggled to maintain the status quo in order to offer a good education to their residents, as well as to international students. They believe a good education is important to individual growth and opportunities and they try to improve their country in any ways possible as resources become available.
