University Grants Commission (UGC) Approved University List of Bangladesh 2019

UGC stands for University Grants Commission. The UGC is the apex body of all the associated public, private, and international universities of Bangladesh. It provides fund for “Government Funded Universities” of Bangladesh. Its mission is to ensure the excellence of higher education all over the country. Private universities must attain approval from UGC before they operate. UGC was intended to maintain the self-directed nature of the universities. The fundamental principle is that the Government should not deal directly with the universities, either individually or cooperatively; instead, it should deal with the UGC, which, in turn, deals directly with the universities.
