IUB students gone to Europe under Erasmus+ Scholarship
Four students of Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) have been awarded Erasmus+ Scholarship to study for a semester in Europe. These students had been selected from a pool of 350 applicants who now have gone to study at the University of Maribor (UM), Slovenia.
Erasmus+ is fully funded by the European Union (EU). “The Best Universities in New Europe in 2018” by the Times Higher Education magazine, ranked the University of Maribor (UM) among the top 10 research-intensive Universities from the new EU member states.
Ankur Datta and Samira Fairuz Ahmed, IUB students of Computer Science and Engineering are hosted by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the UM; Fahim Ahmed Sarkar, IUB student of Finance is hosted by the Faculty of Economics and Business at the UM; and Jahanara Tariq, the IUB student of English Literature is hosted by the Faculty of Arts at the UM.
Consequently, the experience that IUB students will gather at the UM will not only enrich them scholastically, but will also help them becoming global citizens.
