Eight undergraduate Bangladeshi students from both public and private universities are going to participate in a non-degree academic exchange programme in the US for one year.

The programme opened up an opportunity for the students to study in US community colleges, explore career fields, and strengthen leadership and English language skills.   

US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl Miller at a virtual Pre-Departure Orientation held on Thursday congratulated the eight outbound students for being selected to take part in the US State Department-funded Community College Initiative (CCI) Programme, said a press release of the US Embassy in Dhaka on Sunday.
