The University Grants Commission (UGC) has given conditional permission to private universities for conducting in-person classes and examinations after decision taken by their respective academic councils and syndicates.
For resumption of the physical teaching, teachers, students and staff of the universities must receive at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine or get registered for vaccination.
It sent a letter signed by its Private University Director Md Omar Faruque to the vice-chancellors and registrars of all private universities on Thursday in this regard.
All the private universities remained closed since March last year due to the coronavirus pandemic but the universities are conducting online classes and exams.
Earlier on September 14, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni held a meeting with the VCs of public universities and UGC officials regarding the reopening of universities.
After the meeting, the minister asked the public universities to reopen after September 27 by taking approval from their academic councils and syndicates.
