‘To implement Strategic Plan for Higher Education, strategic plan is also needed at the primary to higher secondary levels’

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to monitor various courses of the universities in the country through the Accreditation Council and the National Qualification Framework.

This will be done with the aim of achieving higher education goals through the implementation of Strategic Plan for Higher Education 2018-2030.

The university regulatory body has also set a plan to allocate 6% of the GDP for the higher education sector.

The UGC chairman and other members disclosed the information while addressing the first meeting of the 21-member oversight committee on the implementation of the Strategic Plan for Higher Education on Monday.

UGC Chairman Prof Kazi Shahidullah said a National Research Council, Central Research Laboratory, and University Teacher Training Academy will be established to secure a place in the university world rankings by ensuring quality higher education.

Shahidullah further said the Accreditation Council and the National Qualification Framework have been formed to regularly monitor various courses and labs of the universities in the country.
