And this mission will be achieved by imparting world class education and providing research facilities so that the students can attain their full intellectual, social and personal potentials.
Understanding the impotency and value of higher education to build a happy and thriving Bangladesh, a group of dedicated educationists and enthusiasts discussed the prospects of establishing a private university that would uphold the torch of knowledge and would pursue quality education in a quiet, knowledge-based, trouble-free and genial academic environment. Britannia was established under the Private University Act 2010 duly approved by the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGC) and the Ministry of Education, Government of the Peoples' Republic of Bangladesh on 16th November, 2012 for awarding degrees in various fields.
The Britannia University focuses on the quality of the student experience; innovative curricula are designed to meet the market needs in today’s rapidly evolving and technologically advanced world. It is modeled on British & North American Universities. The curricula of each program proposed by BU are reviewed by the experts of UGC and then duly approved by UGC.
