Minhajul Islam of Chittagong said about the opportunity to finish his unfinished education abroad, ‘I came to Dubai two years ago with a loan to get financial stability and family. Although interested in studies, HSC examination was not given due to financial crisis. Since the Bangladesh government has given our expatriates the opportunity to study in Baubi, I will definitely get admission. Many expatriates like me will be able to take advantage of this facility and use the certificate obtained in the workplace along with their own skills.
Incidentally, this system is already in operation in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and Italy in the Middle East. However, this is the first time in the Emirates that expatriates have been admitted to Baubi. Emirati expatriates are very happy and happy with this.
