Bangladesh National University (Bengali: জাতীয় বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়, বাংলাদেশ ) is a parent university of Bangladesh which was primarily established to affiliate all the universities and colleges. It is situated in Gazipur, on the outskirts of Dhaka.
The university has stature with a justification encompassing the whole country. The specialty of National University of Bangladesh consists in its being a post-graduate (academic teaching and research) university as well as an affiliating university. It is a state-run public university. Its prime focus is on the development of the campus offering diversified course at the higher level. It has already a school and a centre and meanwhile it has established a number of institutes. The institutes are aimed at providing courses of higher level leading to M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees.
The Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences (IHS) was opened in 1997 to offer two-year M.Phil. following modern American credit hour and semester system including course work, two-month internship and thesis guided by supervisor. The M.Phil. is an interdisciplinary degree which is intensive enough to help the students to pursue Ph.D. courses. The course is open to faculty members who are employed at universities and colleges. Four more institutes — the Institute of Liberation and Bangladesh Studies (ILBS), Institutes of National Science (INS), Institute of Life Sciences (ILS), and Institute of Business and Management Studies (IBMS) — have all the formalities complete toward their constitutions and are soon to provide higher courses related to science, needs of life, and national heritage.
Teachers training as provided in the university is intensive and extensive in nature and of a high academic standard. Very few of the teachers teaching at honours and masters level have higher training. The training programme of the university is designed to augment the knowledge of the college teachers, enhance their skill in teaching and get them an exposure to higher ideas. Eminent educationists and scholars of the country are associated with the academic programmes provided on campus.
The university has four academic units: School of Under Graduate Studies, Centre for Post Graduate Education, Training & Research, Centre for Curriculum Development and Evaluation, and Institute of Post-Graduate Studies.
The school and centres are to organize education in colleges and improve the standard. The university provides bachelors, honours and masters degrees in ten disciplines: languages, humanities, social science, commerce and business administration, physical sciences, mathematical sciences, biological science, education, law and computer technology.
Apart from the units providing campus teaching at Board Bazar, Gazipur, the university has about 1,800 component/affiliated colleges. These colleges under its academic control cater for courses leading to Pass, Honours and Masters degrees. The university exercises academic control over the colleges according to the National University Act 1992 mandated by the National Parliament of Bangladesh and the statutes of the university. It provides the curricula and syllabi, arranges admission test, gives guidelines for admission, arranges inspection, holds examination, publishes results and awards certificates. A close liaison is maintained between the university and the colleges. The university acts as the nerve centre of academic activities of the affiliated college.
The curricula and syllabi of the colleges are being standardized and modernised in consonance with national ideology. The new syllabuses came into effect from the last academic session.[when?]
The National University of Bangladesh is now one of the largest universities in the world after its 17-year history — by its number of registered students at affiliated colleges, number of affiliated colleges and number of expanding subjects and courses.
