Message from Vice Chancellor

vc sirProfessor Dr. M A Mannan
Vice-Chancellor, Bangladesh Open University.

It gives me a great pleasure to welcome you at the website of Bangladesh Open University (BOU), the only public university for distance learning in the country. This university is always open for every citizen of Bangladesh staying anywhere in the world. This university provides education of international standard at your doorstep with affordable cost including the course materials. The fee structure of this university is perhaps the lowest compared to the fee structures of other universities.

BOU is the only university in the country where you can continue your education along with your job, business and domestic responsibilities. Dropouts, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations and working people are the main target groups of the university. Women are especially encouraged to get admission into the programs of BOU by choice. BOU is planning to introduce a number of educational programs for women population.

As the Chief Executive of BOU, my priority will be to strengthen the basic and higher education in the nooks and corners of the country, especially in the deprived rural areas of Bangladesh. We have highly qualified and experienced faculty at our main campus and we will strengthen our faculty to provide higher education of international standard in rural areas. You can visit the nearest regional campuses (Regional centers)/Sub-Regional Centers to obtain BOU prospectus and admission details of your desired program.

In the world of today, the modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing significant role in providing facilities for the delivery system and quality education. BOU is making new strides in employing most modern communication technology for effective delivery of education. The rapid advancement in ICT has helped a great deal in eliminating the physical distances. With latest innovations in computer and communication technology, the world has become a global village where information is readily available and accessible to everyone. BOU has taken full advantage of the modern ICT to facilitate and support its students all over the country, e.g., provision of student-related information through web (with databases at back end), Learning Management System (LMS), Interactive Virtual Class Rooms (IVCR), Mobile Technology, pre-recorded Video Programs and Live Programs (Live Streaming) through the use of National TV channel (BTV) as well as Sattelite TV Channel (Sansad TV Channel), Radio Programs for both formal and informal academic courses in collaboration with Bangladesh Radio and Video Conferencing for better quality education. We also use the services of expert faculty members and external prominent resources persons for conducting week-end class-lectures, workshops and Teacher-Students Dialogue.

I wish all of our learners/students very bright future. I hope that after getting education at BOU, you will become an asset for the country and you will be able to play an important role in accelerating the rate of economic and social development of Bangladesh. Let our dreams come true.
