The decision was taken at an exchange meeting with the Ministry of Education, University Grants Commission (UGC) and vice-chancellors of public universities on Tuesday.
All students of the university will be brought under Covid-19 vaccination as soon as possible on priority basis.
The meeting, chaired by Education Minister Dipu Moni, allowed all public and private universities in the country to take direct and online exams subject to conditions. However, the examinations should be taken and evaluated on the advice of the academic council of the universities. At the same time, a number of decisions have been taken, including the introduction of the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible, based on the priorities of university students.
At the beginning of the meeting, the Education Minister presented his statement on the future steps to be taken to keep the educational activities of all public universities in the country active and open.
After a detailed discussion at the meeting, some practical decisions were taken in the interest of keeping the academic life of the university students active and safe.
These are the guidelines of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina that all the students of the university will be brought under the covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible on priority basis. The vaccination program will start with the students of the residential halls. The final instructions will be taken and evaluated on the subject matter, subject to the approval of the Academic Councils of the respective universities, subject to the two directives given by the UGC earlier to conduct the examinations in the presence of conditional conditions and online examinations in the light of specific policies.
The residential halls of the university will be opened after the students of the university are vaccinated against COVID-19. After that the educational activities will be started as before in the direct presence of the students in the university. Each university will prepare a Recovery Plan according to its own capabilities and realities to compensate for the damage already done to the students’ education due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. A general guideline of this Recovery Plan will be prepared by the University Grants Commission and sent to the universities
