Bangladesh Open University is the only open and distance learning institution in the country. The university was established in 1992 with a view to supporting governments’ educational polices, both short and long-run, by offering flexible and affordable educational opportunities to disadvantaged people who are unable to attend traditional academic institutions/universities for various socio-economic problems. BOU provide educational opportunities to students at pre-University levels through open schooling and offer a wide range of higher education programs including diploma, bachelor's, master’s, MPhil and PhD degrees through open and distance learning (ODL), without any age restrictions. BOU is committed to spread action-oriented, mass-oriented and lifelong education to the doorstep of its stakeholders through its countrywide academic network.

The university utilizes a blended learning approach, combining self-study materials, face-to-face tutorials, e-learning centres, multimedia resources, and online platforms to deliver education to its students. This approach allows individuals from diverse backgrounds and locations to access quality education at their own pace and convenience.

BOU caters to a diverse student population, including working professionals, individuals with family responsibilities, and those residing in remote areas with limited access to traditional educational institutions. The university's commitment to inclusivity and accessibility has made it a popular choice among professional and adult learners and individuals in home and abroad seeking to enhance their skills and knowledge while balancing other commitments.

With its mission to promote lifelong learning and bridge the educational gap, Bangladesh Open University has been playing a significant role in expanding educational opportunities in the country and expatriate Bangladeshi. Its innovative approach to open and distance learning has not only empowering individuals but also contributed to the socio-economic development of Bangladesh by equipping students with the necessary skills and qualifications for better employment prospects.

BOU is a place where students are equipped with knowledge, skills and values that resonate with the demands of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT)-driven Fourth Industrial Revolution thus ensuring that our graduates are well prepared to meet and overcome the challenges of their time. Our mission and vision is to provide our students with a holistic education. In practical terms, this means that besides equipping our students with excellent academic skills and competencies, BOU will make you a person of distinction to make your contribution to society.

We wish you much success in the years ahead and hope together we will make a change for the better future of the country and ourselves.
