Study in Bangladesh

There are many reasons to study in Bangladesh. Since independence from Pakistan in 1971, Bangladesh has developed into a significant country in its own right, and Bangladeshi culture and art have had a big impact on the evolution of culture in South Asia as a whole. Bangladesh itself is inspired by other nations, with the influence of India and Nepal evident in its  cuisine, art, language and festivals. 

Bangladesh is also famous for its climate, with mild winters and warm tropical summers culminating in a famous monsoon season. In terms of student life, one of the best-known universities in Bangladesh is the University of Daka. 

Established in 1921, the University of Dhaka holds the distinction of being the oldest university in Bangladesh, and boasts a list of famous alumni including Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammed Yunus and the first Bangladeshi president, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. More than 10 former presidents and multiple prime ministers also studied there.
