It is a matter of immense pleasure for me to be a part of the Varendra University family as its 4th Pro Vice Chancellor. I take this opportunity of welcoming all to join Varendra University, an institution renowned for its quality and for its commitment to engage with society's challenges through research.
In terms of credentials, the University has a history of achievements of about 12 years, the most recent one being the review by the University Grants Commission (2020) where VU achieved the highest grade. Moreover, VU has already got the accreditation from Bangladesh Bar Council and Bangladesh Pharmacy Council. BAC and IEB accreditation process is also underway.
VU has a dedicated team of qualified faculty and an equally sincere non-teaching staff who cater to the academic and official requirements of the students. The academic atmosphere of the University generates a cordial and ambient feeling. A large number of national conferences, seminars and workshops are organized by the University. Such events provide a variety of experiences to the students which are helpful for their career. Our faculty members regularly publish research works in journals of repute that have high impact factor.
This University is ICT enabled and the departments provide an e-learning and e-connect environment, along with document management system as well as virtual classrooms. The new and permanent campus of the University is situated on about 45 bighas of land at Rajshahi bypass road and the construction work of the first phase has been completed within 2022.
Furthermore, our career center, IQAC, Center for Multidisciplinary Research with state of art labs and a well stacked library fulfill the academic needs of the students. Our modern curriculum, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities ensure the physical, mental and intellectual growth of our students. It is also to be mentioned here that VU has its own bus service that students can avail for transportation. We hope that with the support of our senior management, peers, mentors, students and their parents, we will become one of the leading universities in Bangladesh very soon.
It is a matter of great importance that we provide financial assistance of about four crore (in Taka) every year to poor and meritorious students so that students from financially challenged families too can afford to study in VU. I hope this prospectus will help you explore requirements for different degrees, financial aid options and answer many of your queries. It provides information about admission, accommodation, job placement, and more. We are keen to attract talented, motivated students; specially those who care about society and the environment.
We encourage you to choose VU. It will change your life.
