Higher Education initiatives from the British Council Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a growing country with a remarkable expansion and demand in its education sectors. Since 2007, university enrolments have tripled to over 4.4 million. Bangladesh now has 140 universities (46 public universities and 94 private universities).

Our Higher Education activities are aimed at addressing the needs of this sector and establishing sustainable links with Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) in the UK. Partnership is at the heart of designing these programmes and, as a mediator, we promote public, private and global initiatives.
