DU in-person classes, exams resume

In-person classes and exams of Dhaka University (DU) have resumed from today, Sunday (October 17) after the closure of nearly 18 months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the university’s academic council on October 7.

Earlier, on October 5, the university reopened its residential halls for only final year students of honours and master’s classes on condition of taking at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine and maintaining health guidelines properly. 

Later, the halls opened for all students from October 10.  

Earlier, on September 28, the provost standing committee and the academic council made the decision to reopen dorms at a syndicate meeting chaired by the vice-chancellor professor Md Akhtaruzzaman.

Like all other educational institutions in the country, the DU was shut in March last year to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
