The British Council IELTS Scholarships scheme was first introduced in 2015 with an aim to make foreign education more accessible to Bangladeshi students. Overwhelmed by the response, the scheme was re-launched in August 2016 to continue to support IELTS candidates in achieving their dreams of a foreign education. Last year, five winners from across the country were awarded a scholarship worth BDT 300,000 each. Study destinations include UK, Australia, Malaysia and German.
This year, with British Council IELTS Scholarships 2018, they are also making this scholarship available to students who are planning to pursue their higher education in Bangladesh. The core ethos of this scheme is to enhance ‘access to higher education’, thus building the foundation for a stable, economically prosperous and more equal Bangladesh.
