University Grants Commission (UGC) member Professor Muhammad Alamgir on Wednesday said the country’s universities have to provide some necessary information on their own initiative to achieve a good position in the world university ranking.

Professor Muhammad Alamgir said there are many successes of the universities but the Bangladeshi universities are not getting a place in the rankings as they do not have enough idea about the information that must be provided to get a place in the world rankings.

Therefore, university teachers and researchers need to be informed about these issues to get good position in the ranking, he added.

UGC member Prof Alamgir who presided over the webinar jointly arranged by UGC and Times Higher Education, came up with the remarks, urging universities to ensure quality research and higher education.

Times Higher Education’s Regional Director and General Manager for Asia Ritin Malhotra conducted the programme while UGC members Prof Dil Afroza Begum, Prof Biswajit Chanda and Prof Md Abu Taher, its Director Fakhrul Islam and additional director Jesmin Parveen also participated at the event.
