Universities to remain closed till June 15

Universities have extended holidays in coordination with schools and colleges. The Bangladesh University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to suspend all activities of public and private universities till June 15.

However, online courses/distance learning has been asked to continue. The notification was published on UGC's website on Friday.

"All public and private universities in the country will remain closed till June 15 to curb the COVID-19," the statement said.

All concerned, including public and private university authorities, are requested to meet the UGC authorities and conduct necessary activities through virtual meetings, correspondence and e-mails instead of direct meetings to ensure all health rules including social distance as directed by the Ministry of Health.

However, the university has been asked to conduct online teaching activities amid closure. Besides, it has been mentioned that private university examinations can be conducted following the conditions given by UGC.
