NSU in brief

North South University (NSU), the first private university in Bangladesh, was established by NSU Foundation, which later formed North South University Trust (NSU Trust) comprising a group of philanthropists, industrialists and academics. The Government of Bangladesh approved the establishment of North South University under Private University Act (PUA) – 1992 (now replaced by PUA-2010).  The University was formally inaugurated on 10 February 1993 by the then Prime Minister of Bangladesh. The honourable President of the People's Republic of Bangladesh His Excellency Md. Abdul Hamid is the Chancellor of NSU.

Mr. M.A. Kashem is the current Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BOT).  The other Trustees are Mr. Azim Uddin Ahmed, Mr. Benajir Ahmed, Mr. Iftekharul Alam, Dr. Roushon Alam, Mr. Ragib Ali, Mr. M.A. Awal, Mr. Yussuf A. Harun, Mr. M.A. Hasem, Mr. M.A.Kalam, Mr. S.M. Kamaluddin, Mr. Abul Kashem, Mrs. Yasmin Kamal, Mrs. Rehana Rahman, Mr. A.S.F Rahman, Mr. Mohammed Shajahan, Dr. Junaid Kamal Ahmad, Mr. Mahbubar Rahman.  Prof. Amin U. Sarkar, Ph.D., the Vice Chancellor of NSU, is Ex-Officio Member of the BOT.

As the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of NSU, the Vice Chancellor is the responsible authority for the administration and academic affairs of the university, as per the Private University Act (PUA 2010) and the policy guidelines set by the BOT.  The Vice Chancellor is assisted by a Pro Vice Chancellor and a Treasurer. Dr. Amin U. Sarkar is the current Vice Chancellor.

NSU is modelled after U.S. universities and follows features such as semesters, credit hours, grades, etc. Its curricula of undergraduate economics, business and computer science, when first introduced, were largely modelled after the curricula of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and were duly approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). NSU has an International Advisory Board to counsel on academic matters.  Presently, NSU is pursuing institutional and program accreditations from reputable accrediting bodies in the USA.

The UGC is the only national higher education authority in Bangladesh. The Computer Science & Engineering programs are under the process for accreditation by the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Recently, the business programs received “Candidacy” from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The University is preparing for accreditation of the public policy program by the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA) and the public health program by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The university is delivering a substantial general education curriculum, has a Strategic Plan, and has initiated and implemented student instructional learning assessment for degree programs and courses and is in process of developing  the infrastructure for evaluation of institutional effectiveness.  The Government of Bangladesh is also in the process of introducing an accreditation council for the enhancement of educational quality.

The first freshman class of January 1993 had 137 students enrolled in three Departments: Business Administration, Computer Science, and Economics. Departments of Environmental Studies (DES), English, and General and Continuing Education (GCE) were founded in May 1997. The Master's program in Economics was introduced in 1994. The MBA program was launched in Summer 1997. The Master in Development Studies and Bachelor in Computer Engineering were introduced in 2002, while the MS in Computer Science has been offered from Summer 2003. The Bachelor in Architecture was introduced in Fall 2004. A Master in English degree was launched in Spring 2005. Bachelor of Pharmacy (B. Pharm.) and Executive MBA programs started in Spring 2006, and a Master in Biotechnology and Master of Public Health programs were started in Summer 2006.  The BS in Microbiology and BS in Biochemistry and Biotechnology programs were introduced in Spring 2007. A Master in Public Policy and Governance (MPPG) program began in Fall 2008, and the BS in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) was introduced in Spring 2009. The Master in Resource and Environmental Management (MREM) was added in Fall 2009 and a Master in Pharmacy (MPharm) in Spring 2012.  Recently, the Bachelor of Laws degree (LL.B.) was introduced and students have started classes.  The BBA degree program includes majors in Accounting, Economics, Enterpreneurship, Finance, Human Resource Management, International Business, Management, Management Information System, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management. The MBA degree program includes concentrations in General, Finance, HR management, e-Business, Marketing, Pharmaceutical Management, Health Service Management, and Telecommunication Management. Proposed academic programs include Bachelor of Professional Pharmacy, Bachelor degree in Public Health, BA in Media Studies, BS in Textile Engineering, BA in Ethics and Social Responsibility, BSS in Homeland Security, BSS in Criminal Justice, BA in Teacher Education, BA in Organizational Communication, BS in Counselling, and a BS in Nursing.  The number of students at NSU in the year 2015 is above 18,000.

NSU has three Institutes and one Center: (i) Institute of Development, Environment and Strategic Studies (IDESS); (ii) The English Institute; (iii) Confucius Institute; and (iv) the Center of Information & Communication Technology.

NSU has so far held 18 Convocations. The first convocation was held in December 1996 when Justice Shahabuddin Ahmed, Honorable President of Bangladesh and Chancellor of NSU conferred degrees upon 96 graduates. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Convocations were held in 1998, 1999, and 2000 respectively. In the 4th Convocation, held on 25 November 2000, 165 graduates, including the first batch of 45 MBA graduates, were conferred degrees. The 5th Convocation was held on 11 November 2001; the 6th in November 2002; the 7th in December 2003; the 8th in November 2004; the 9th in December 2005; the 10th in November 2007; the 11th in November 2007; and the 12th in 2009. Since then, seven other convocations have been held at the NSU permanent campus in Bashundhara. The 18th Convocation was held at end of spring semester 2015, with 2036 students conferred bachelor and master level degrees.

NSU has so far produced a total of 13,138 graduates. Most of these graduates are employed in different universities, national, and multinational companies.

For purposes of admission, all persons who are not citizens or permanent residents of Bangladesh are defined as international applicants. In most cases, international applicants seeking admission to NSU must meet the same academic standards for admission as those required for native students. There are wide variations, however, between educational systems throughout the world that makes exact comparison of educational standards difficult. 
International applicants are selected on the basis of their prior academic work, English proficiency, probability of success in the chosen curriculum (as evidenced by prior work in the academic area involved), and certification of adequate financial resources.

 

Transfer Students

Transfer students (those with previous college credits) are expected to have at least a 2.0 GPA in all college level courses to be considered for admission to the University. Catalogs and official transcripts from previously attended colleges and universities must be furnished with the application for admission.  Failure to provide either will disqualify the applicant.  To be official, transcripts from each college / university attended must be sent directly to the NSU Registrar's Office.  Hand carried transcripts and transcripts sent by students are unofficial, even though they may carry the college seal or signatures that are placed on official records.

 

Credit Transfer

A student may transfer a maximum of 50% credits earned at previously attended colleges and universities to be counted towards NSU degrees. Transcripts from all previously attended institutions must be submitted. Only credits on which a student has earned the grade C or above will be transferable to NSU. For purposes of transferring credits, Directors of programs and Chairs of departments will determine equivalence of courses and may also refer cases to the Equivalence Committee, if needed. Transferred credits and grades are not included in calculating the GPA at NSU.  However, the name of previous school will be recorded in NSU transcript.

 

Provisional Admission

NSU may tentatively accept applicants for admission who cannot produce official transcripts by the first week of classes. Such admissions are provisional.  All provisionally admitted students who enter the University without complete credentials for admission will be required to submit the appropriate credentials as a prerequisite for continued enrolment.  Required credentials must be submitted within the semester of initial enrolment.

 

Non-degree Students

Applicants who have not participated in formal education for some time, or applicants who do not intend to become candidates for a degree, may register for credits in undergraduate courses as non-degree students. Applicants are admitted as non-degree students on a semester-by-semester basis without any obligation to continue.  Such students may apply at any time to be admitted to a degree program at NSU. Non-degree students may obtain transcripts reflecting credits for the semesters attended.  A transcript fee will be charged.  However, they have to show the student ID card from the institution during course registration.

 

Fraudulent Applications

Individuals who provide fraudulent information on applications for admission or readmission are subject to immediate dismissal from the university.

Orientation

All new students are expected to participate in the orientation program. The orientation program acquaints the student with University policies and the educational opportunities, facilities, and services available at the University.  Attendance at the orientation ceremony is mandatory.

Student Identification Cards

All students receive photo identification cards with their student numbers. These cards are used for various purposes such as entering campus, attending classes, and using the library and computer services.  This card is not transferable.  The ID number is unique up to the graduation level with the award of degree.

Academic Advising

Each new student is assigned an academic advisor at the beginning of the school year.  The academic advisor assists the student in defining educational goals to be reached; provides information regarding curricula, courses, careers, and graduate programs; and discusses personal problems the student may have, especially those related to the student's academic progress and plans for subsequent pursuits.  Students are expected to schedule appointments with their advisors before pre-registration and at other times throughout the semester as needed.  During the advising session students will be provided with a degree checklist and course pathway sequence with which students can plan a smooth graduation within the stipulated time period.

Students will be billed for courses each semester during the advising or course registration process. If a student decides to continue enrolment a semester after advising, then he/she should apply for withdrawal within the last day of Registration of the same semester. Otherwise, he/she will be billed for the registered courses.
Students must inform their academic advisors of any special needs or deficiencies might affect academic performance or selection of courses.  Students are expected to know academic policies, procedures, and degree requirements, and to remain informed about their progress of study in meeting these requirements.

Registration

 

Academic Calendar

At the beginning of each semester the Registrar’s Office announces the academic calendar for the whole semester, which includes (among other information) the first and final day of classes, exams, holidays, deadline for fee payment, etc.  Students are encouraged to review it carefully so that they can plan their study accordingly.  In case of emergency, the academic calendar may be changed by authority, with prior notification.

Course Registration

Students are responsible for fulfilling all requirements of the degree program to which they are admitted.  They should consult with their academic advisors in planning their course schedule each semester and be familiar with NSU policies and procedures related to registration for courses and graduation requirements. No registration is complete until all tuition and other fees are paid and the registration form is returned to the Registrar’s Office.  NSU now has an up-to-date automated course registration process in place and students may be informed of the process at the NSU website or through the Registrar’s office.  NSU uses web-based technology for course registration.  Accordingly, students can use their PC or smart phone from anywhere to register for courses according to the pre-announced schedule.  For course registration students should follow the advice of their faculty advisor, the degree pathway sequence of courses, and the degree checklist.  Students are expected normally to finish general education courses first and then gradually take the core and elective courses in their respective School and degree program of study.

Late Registration

Students must register for courses during the scheduled registration period. A student who seeks to register after the first day of classes in a semester must obtain permission from the Department Chair.  Those students who are given permission to register late must pay a late registration fee.

Adding and Dropping Courses

Students who seek to add or drop a course or are recommended to do so by the instructor, should confirm with their advisor prior to dropping or adding a course.

The last day for dropping a course without a record entry (i.e., W) is the end of the third week of the semester.  The grade “W” will be entered on the academic record for courses dropped between the ends of the third and the sixth weeks. After the sixth week of the semester no courses can be dropped.
The instructor may drop a student from a course after two weeks of the semester if the latter has neither attended any of the scheduled class meetings nor notified the instructor of intent to drop the course. For purposes of this procedure, registration and payment of tuition for a course do not constitute sufficient notification of intent to take a course.
With the permission of the academic advisor, students may add a course, by re-advising, during the first week of the semester, if space is available. During the second week of the semester, the authorization of the course instructor is also necessary to add a course. After this period no courses can be added for the semester.
Tuition adjustments, i.e., charges and refunds, are explained under "Tuition and Fees" in this Catalog.                            

 

Auditing Courses

Students may audit courses (attend without submitting assignments, taking tests or receiving grades or credits) with the permission of the instructor, when space is available. Courses that require use of computer lab or electronic devices may not be audited due to high demand on the equipment and instructor's attention.  An audit is not recorded on the academic record.  Students should not register for courses they wish to audit. Tuition and other fees will not be assessed for audited courses.

Withdrawal from the University

A student who wishes to withdraw from the University for a semester (dropping all courses for the semester) must do so by contacting the office of the Registrar.  Notification to an instructor is not adequate. Withdrawals will not be authorized after the sixth week of the semester except in the case of verifiable non-academic hardships as approved by the Chair of the concerned department.  See the "Tuition and Other Fees" section of this Catalog to determine the financial implications for withdrawal.
A statement will be entered on the withdrawing student's academic record reflecting the official withdrawal.  A grade of “F” will be recorded for students who abandon their courses without officially withdrawing for the semester or from the University.

Payment of Fees

Students must pay the total amount of their semester tuition and fees by the last day of registration for that semester.  NSU authorized banks accept bank drafts or pay orders or cash for the assessed amount payable to North South University.  Personal checks are not accepted.
A late registration fee is assessed for students who register or pay their fees after the regular registration period.  A student's obligation to pay regularly assessed tuition and fees is not reduced by an approval to defer payment.
Students withdrawing from courses are eligible for refunds in accordance with the refund policy.

NSU course registration and collection systems are fully automated from Summer 2015.  Students can pay their tuition and fees directly to the bank by online banking system in the following three banks:

No verification/clearance is required if payment follows the deadline specified in the academic calendar.

Withholding Student Records

The University withholds students' academic records in case of non-payment of tuition and fees and other appropriate charges or for not returning University property.

Admission Fee

The non-refundable admission fee is assessed for admitted applicants following an admission test and before registration begins.  An applicant forfeits the right of admission if the admission fee is not paid by the due date.  Applicants are notified of such due dates by notice posted at the NSU Registrar’s Office.

Student Activity Fee

The Student Activity Fee is due at the time of registration each semester the student is enrolled.   This fee is used to support a broad range of student activities and interests.

Non-degree Students

Tuition, fees, and other charges are assessed for non-degree students when they change status to degree candidates or when credits earned as a non-degree student are applied towards a degree from NSU.

Tuition

The tuition fee is due at the time of academic advising at the beginning of each semester, and is based upon the student's academic level (undergraduate or graduate) and the number of credits for which the student is registered.  Students can view their outstanding bill by entering into the student information system with username and password.  Using the same mechanism, they can also check their current semester grades online.  Parents and guardians can also request their wards to show them grades online.  There is no paper-based notification of grade to parents or guardians.

Withdrawal and Refunds

Applications for withdrawal from the University or from a course after the registration period is over must be made in writing to the Department Chair or Program Director.  Notification to an instructor is not adequate.  In case of authorized withdrawals and changes in schedule/ registration (adds and drops), tuition will be adjusted as per rule.

No adjustment is authorized for admission or other assessed fees. In case of death of a student, adjustments will be made any time during the semester as authorized.

Withdrawal as a result of serious illness or disabling accident will be subject to review by the University for possible variation from the policy described above.  No adjustment will be made for a student who is facing academic difficulties, or who is suspended, dismissed, or expelled for breach of the code of conduct.

Other Expenses

In addition to the applicable fees, students are required to purchase textbooks, instruments, and other personal equipment and supplies when needed for courses in the chosen curriculum.  Late fee is charged if students fail to pay within the deadline.  Fees do not include different penalties charged to students if they fail to comply with the NSU Code of Conduct.

Financial Assistance

Financial Aid is monetary assistance from institutional, governmental, or private source that is available to assist students in affording educational costs. This financial aid could be in the form of academic scholarships, tuition waiver, study loans, and student employment.
Yes! Financial Aid is available at NSU to help you pay your university costs.
How students will pay for their education is sometimes an important part of deciding which institution they will attend. The Financial Aid Office (FAO) of North South University understands that our students and their family have been planning a lifetime for a future career. We also understand that many families need help for filling in the gap between what they can afford and the resources needed to pay university education costs. NSU attaches a high priority to financial aid and the university has a standing commitment to meet the financial need of eligible students. The comprehensive FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM of North South University is administered by a high-powered Financial Assistance Committee (FAC), generally consisting of a panel of members of the Board of Trustees and high officials of the University.
The NSU student aid program encourages the students to apply for monetary help if they believe that they will need assistance in order to attend North South University. The FAO presently consists of 4 members headed by Deputy Director. FAO started its operation in 1993, being responsible for corresponding, coordinating, and organizing the overall FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM to the students. A total of 1016 students were granted full/partial tuition waiver in Fall 2014 semester, out of which: 317 students were granted full (100%) waiver; 69 students 75%; 200 students 50%; and 430 students 25% tuition waiver. Altogether this amounts to BT 3.14 crore as financial assistance in Fall 2014 semester alone. To help needy and meritorious students and for the socioeconomic development of the country, NSU has disbursed a significant amount of BT 51.31 crore as financial assistance since inception to Fall 2014 semester.
What types of financial aid are available at North South University?
Financial aid reflects the University's commitment to a student community that is broadly diverse in terms of race, geography, gender, special skills and talent. NSU offers financial aid to students under the provision of Private University Act 2010, where students of NSU can apply in the following categories:

  • Financial aid for the wards of freedom fighters (WoFF) of liberation war
    (Quota based waiver).
  • Financial aid based on previous academic attainment and admission test result
    (Merit based tuition waiver).
  • Financial aid based on high academic achievement at NSU (Merit based tuition waiver). 
  • Financial aid based on financial NEED of a student (based on
    humanitarian grounds).
  • Financial aid based on Need and Merit of a student (Merit-Need based waiver).
  • Financial aid based on siblings studying together at NSU.
  • Financial aid in the form of student employment at NSU (Work-Study
    based waiver).

 

 

Who is eligible for financial aid at North South University?
North South University awards financial aid in the form of full/partial tuition waiver only to the deserving students who achieve and maintain outstanding academic track records as mentioned below:

  • Undergraduate applicants securing 1st and 2nd position in the NSU admission test get full tuition waiver (100%).
  • GPA 5.00 (excluding 4th Subject) in either SSC or HSC and at least GPA 4.80 in the other (excluding 4th Subject) with satisfactory NSU Admission Test Performance.
  • Candidates who earn 7 A's in O-level exams at a time and 3 A's in A-level having satisfactory NSU Admission Test Score.
  • MBA and MPH applicants securing highest score in the NSU admission test are entitled to 50% tuition waiver upon admission.
  • NSU graduates, with GPA 3.80 at undergraduate level, are entitled to 50% tuition waiver upon admission in any graduate level at NSU.
  • General students of NSU seeking financial aid must fulfill the minimum criteria, i.e., the undergraduate students must complete a minimum of 9 credits and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75, and graduate students GPA of 3.25 with 6 credits.
  • Aid for Siblings: Financial assistance is also available for siblings; i.e., if two brothers or two sisters or one brother and one sister, whatever may be the case, have been studying at NSU, they are entitled to 25% tuition waiver, each subject to eligibility, and they must apply formally during the usual aid process.
  • Freedom Fighter quota: Students availing freedom fighter quota status must apply formally, enclosing the following documents/details as per requirement of the Ministry of Liberation War Affairs:
  • Attested copy of ‘Shamoik Shonod’ or ‘BAMUSH Shonod’ of the freedom fighter.
  • Attested copy of Bangladesh Gazette of the freedom fighter.
  • Attested copy of ‘Muktibarta’ of the freedom fighter.
  • Attested copy of the National ID/ Birth certificate of freedom fighter.

Attainment of freedom fighter quota is subject to verification from the concerned Ministry. FAO deals with the cases on a first-come first-served basis. However, priority may be given to the children of freedom fighters who are orphans, children of deceased/wounded freedom fighters, or whose parents are critically ill. Continuation of freedom fighter financial support is subject to satisfactory academic performance at NSU:

Graduate students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.00 and undergraduate students GPA of 2.75 at all time.

Applicants of freedom fighter quota can apply for financial aid in all semesters after admission.
However, students in all the above cases must apply for financial aid formally. The authority may review and change the above conditions from time to time. Continuation of such tuition waivers is subject to the student's academic performance and other financial aid policy of NSU, as applicable.

When will you apply for financial aid and how?
Applications for financial aid are invited from bona fide and eligible students of NSU in every Spring and Summer semester through well-circulated notification. No applications are invited from students in Fall semester except for freedom fighter quota and candidates of admission test. Students seeking financial aid should apply in prescribed APPLICATION FORM available at Prime Bank, Bashundhara Branch, Dhaka upon payment of BT 1000.00 (one thousand) only. Application should be completed properly and submitted to FAO with necessary/relevant documents within the deadline. Deadline for financial aid application is announced and notified in due time.

Financial Aid Calendar
Spring Semester (January to April):  Applications are invited in 2nd Week of December
Summer Semester (May to August):  Applications are invited in 1st Week of May
Fall Semester (September to December):  Performance and eligibility are reviewed.
(Freedom fighter quota and admission test based waiver are offered in all semesters).

 

How will you maintain financial aid at NSU?
Once you have been awarded financial aid, you must demonstrate satisfactory academic progress in your academic calendar at NSU in order to maintain your tuition waiver. As a general rule, undergraduate and graduate students are considered to hold satisfactory academic progress if they achieve and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75 and GPA of 3.25 respectively. The recipients of 50% and 75% tuition waiver will have to maintain a GPA of 3.00 to continue tuition waiver (applicable for fresh aid recipients of Fall 2014 and onwards). 100% financial aid recipients (meritorious students) must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.25 or above. Students should also fulfill other conditions to enjoy financial aid. If financial aid is discontinued, students may reapply as a fresh applicant. Financial aid will be renewed automatically if s/he fulfills the financial aid requirements. Financial aid recipients can also apply for enhancement of their financial waiver.
The financial aid recipients/awardees must contact the Financial Aid Office in each semester during the Advising/Registration process. They must submit their student registration (advising) sheet every semester for necessary verification and adjustment of tuition waiver by the Accounts Office. FAO reviews and verifies academic performance every semester against the aid criteria and coordinates with Accounts Office accordingly. Aid recipients should pay BT 500 (five hundred) every semester in order to renew their waiver facility from semester to semester.

Academic Information and Policies

 

Right to Change Rules

The university reserves the right to modify or change requirements, rules, and fees. Such regulations shall go into force whenever the proper authorities determine so.

 

Right to Dismiss Students 

The right is reserved by the university to dismiss or exclude any student from the university, or from any class or classes, whenever, in the interest of the student or the university, the university administration deems it advisable.

 

Responsibility to Know and Comply

Students are held individually responsible to be aware and compliant with the information contained in the NSU Catalog. Failure to read and comply with university regulations will not exempt students from whatever penalties they may incur.

 

General Student Policies

Policies on student behaviour, plagiarism, falsification of records, etc., are available in the Office of the Registrar.

 

 

Disciplinary Committee

Faculty, students, and staff may invoke the Disciplinary Committee in the Office of the Vice Chancellor by a written report of an offence or grievance. The Disciplinary Committee acts independently to ascertain facts. Consequent to the findings of the Disciplinary Committee, existing NSU rules and policies are enforced.

 

Academic Honesty

Any means of unauthorized assistance in preparing materials that a student submits as original work is deemed to be cheating and constitutes grounds for disciplinary action. Instructors are expected to use reasonably practical means of preventing and detecting cheating. Any student judged to have engaged in cheating might receive a reduced grade for the work in question, a failing grade in the course, or such other lesser penalty, as the instructor deems appropriate. The instructor may refer cases of academic dishonesty to the Disciplinary Committee in the Office of the Vice Chancellor.

 

Medium of Instruction

English is the medium of instruction. Since many students come from the Bengali medium, the University offers remedial courses to increase their proficiency in English. The number of remedial courses a student is required to take is determined on the basis of the English Placement Tests. The University strictly requires the student to pass the English remedial courses before taking other courses. Depending on the number of English remedial courses, it may take more than four years for a student to graduate with a bachelor degree.

 

Credit Hour Study Load

Fifteen hours of lecture per week is the normal course load according to USA standards. Each week there will be assignments, homework, and exams. In addition, the faculty will hold help sessions and/or tutorials, thus increasing contact hours to twenty. Students will have access to the computer lab to prepare their papers and other assignments under supervision for up to 30 hours each semester. A student can graduate with the requirement of 120 credits in four years assuming enrolment, if registered for 12-15 credits per semester each academic year. For one credit hour or unit of instruction, students are expected to study outside classroom/lab for two clock hours. A full-time student spends at least 40 clock hours per week in studies, like a full time employee works for 40 clock hours. One credit hour requires receiving instruction in classroom for one hour and studying outside classroom for at least two hours per week.

 

Academic Calendar

The University offers three semesters each academic year:

  • Spring semester begins from 1st week of January and continues for 13 weeks.
  • Summer semester begins from 1st week of May and continues for 13 weeks.
  • Fall semester begins from 1st week of September and continues for 13 weeks.

 

Academic Progress

A student must pass all 100-level courses required for the preferred degree by the third semester after admission. Otherwise, a student will not be allowed to register into higher-level courses. The only exceptions to this are the English courses.
A student who fails to pass a required 100-level course in two attempts will not be registered into any other course, except English, until that student passes the failed course.
A student who fails to pass an English course in two attempts will not be registered into any other course until that student fulfils the English requirement.
A student must fulfill the English requirement, i.e., a student must pass ENG105 by the fourth semester after admission. Failing this, the student will not be allowed to register into other courses until the English requirement is fulfilled.
Students will be allowed to register in contravention to these rules only when such requests are authorized by the Head of the Department and forwarded to the Registrar’s Office.

Full-time/Part-time

A student must take at least 12 credits per semester to be considered a full-time student. A student registered for less than 12 credit hours will be considered as part-time student. Though students may be classified full-time while taking 12 credits, they cannot expect to graduate in four years unless they increase their course load or attend all three semesters during the calendar year.

 

Overload

Students of higher academic standing who wish to register for more than 15 credit hours per semester must obtain written permission for an overload from the Chairman of the Department.

 

Class Attendance

A student is expected to attend all class meetings in a course. It is the responsibility of the instructor to inform the student of the consequences of absence from class. It is the responsibility of the student to keep instructors informed regarding absences from classes.
A student who knows of necessary class absences should consult instructors in advance. A student who misses a class is not excused from obligations to instructors. Instructors will determine the manner in which assignments and exams missed may be made up. A student may be dropped from a course for absence in three consecutive classes.

 

Student Classification

A student is classified as a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate.  This is normally a measure of the years of attendance and credits earned. However, an increase in credits earned during one or more semesters may result in an accelerated classification. Thus, it is more accurate to designate class standing in accordance with credits earned.

The following table of credits earned is used to establish class standing:


Credits earned

Class

0 – 30

Freshman

31 – 60

Sophomore

61 – 90

Junior

Over 90

Senior

Earned bachelors degree

Graduate

 

Application for Degrees

Candidates for graduation must file an application for graduation with their respective departments no later than the sixth week in the semester preceding their final semester.  Candidates must also fill up a prescribed form, which is available at the respective departments.  The Controller of Examinations notifies students about the degree application schedule.  After receipt of a student’s application for graduation, the respective Department/Program, Dean’s office, etc., processes the application.  It is then forwarded to the Degree Review Committee and Academic Council for final recommendation to the Syndicate and Board of Trustees.

Change of Department /Program of Study
A student needs to raise his /her GPA to 2.50 in 3 semesters and should complete 27 credits in the current program of study to change his/her department or program.

 

Good Academic Standing

A student whose GPA is equal to or greater than 2.00 is in good academic standing.

 

Academic Probation and Academic Dismissal

Students with a GPA of less than 2.00 are placed on probation. Students on probation are allowed a maximum of three semesters to raise their GPA to 2.00.  Students who fail to achieve a GPA of 2.00 within three semesters are dismissed from the University.

 

Readmission

NSU students who are in good academic standing, but who do not register for two consecutive semesters without notice, must submit an application for readmission. When such students have attended other colleges and universities during their absence from NSU, they must submit official transcripts along with their application.  A fee is assessed for students who apply for readmission.

 

Readmission from Academic Dismissal

NSU students who have been dismissed from the University may apply for readmission only after three academic years from the day of dismissal. Such applications should include documented evidence that the petitioners have taken steps to improve their academic performance, such as further studies at academies or other institutions, or taken employment providing them experience and responsibilities which have enhanced their ability to undertake academic endeavours. North South University will provide academic counselling during this period if requested.

 

Academic Fresh Start

NSU policy does not allow students to establish a new academic record. Students readmitted into the University or reinstated into a program start with the same record in the same state as when they were dismissed or when they left. Thus, a student with a GPA of less than 2.0 at NSU will be on probation from the date of readmission or reinstatement. Once a student is dismissed from the university, he or she should not be allowed to initiate academic fresh start at least in three years.  The rules of academic probation, suspension, and dismissal are applicable to all students.

 

Change of Degree Program

A student should raise her/his GPA to 3.00 in 3 semesters and should complete 27 credits in the current program of study to change her/his department/program of study.
Students seeking to change their degree program must submit a written request to the Head of the department. Upon recommendation of the Head of the academic department, to which the student intends to change, and endorsement by the Academic Review Committee (ARC), the Office of the Registrar shall make the necessary changes to a student’s record.
Careful consideration should be undertaken by the students who are in their junior or senior years and who wish to change their degree program/major, as requirements for the new major may require additional credits and extend the time for completion of their degree.

 

Final Examinations

A final examination period is scheduled at the end of each semester. The Registrar assigns an examination time and venue for each section of a course during the examination period.

 

Internship Requirement

It is preferred that students registering for internship should have completed all course work. Students must complete at least 100 credits to be eligible for internship.  The Chairman or Dean may authorize exceptions to these rules. Internship may be required for some programs for graduation.

 

For fulfilling degree requirements, students should be interned in organizations ideally for eight to ten weeks, allowing two more weeks for writing reports, etc.

Degree Completion Deadline

An undergraduate degree must be completed in six (6) years time from the date of enrolment. A graduate degree must be completed in four (4) years from the date of enrolment. Any exception to the above must be approved by the Academic Council of the university.

 

Undergraduate Degree Requirements

As NSU is based on the USA university system, all undergraduate degrees are of four years duration, except the Bachelor of Architecture and the Bachelor of Professional Pharmacy degrees.  If an undergraduate student takes 15-16 credits per semester then it will take approximately 8 semesters to complete degree requirements. This can be done in less than four years if a student registers for more than two semesters in some years, has sufficient proficiency in English and mathematics, and plans semester schedules well.  Students are responsible for meeting degree requirements.  Before selecting the courses in each semester students should consult their academic advisor. The University reserves the right to change programs and curricula without notice whenever circumstances warrant such changes.
Meeting graduation requirements is each student's responsibility.  They include the following:

1.   A minimum of 120 credits for a bachelor's degree, of which at least 60 must have been earned at NSU as a student admitted into a degree program, to satisfy the NSU residency requirement. 

2.   Completion of all course requirements for the degree including major, minor, General Education, and School core courses.

3.   At least a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 (C) in all university courses attempted and a 2.5 in all degree core and concentration electives required for graduation. A student must earn a grade of D or better to pass a course.

  • Clearance from NSU Accounts and Library.

 

Fulfillment of the above conditions does not necessarily mean that a degree will be conferred on the student. The university reserves the right to refuse the awarding of a degree on disciplinary and other grounds. 

General Education Courses

These courses are required of all students in coordination with undergraduate degree requirements. They should normally be completed early in a student's program (first two years) at NSU. Students should consult department degree pathway forms. A course that is a prerequisite for a GE course does not satisfy the GE requirement, but such a course may meet the minimum degree requirement.  Courses taken to fulfill core or elective categories may also satisfy the general education requirement.

Minimum University-wide General Education (GE) Requirements (Stand-alone: 51 Credit Hours)

 

  • Languages                                                                  (12 Credit Hours)
  • English Composition                                                   6
  • Public Speaking                                                          3

School Core Courses

These are the courses specifically required for a degree program within a given school (SBE, SEPS, SHLS, SHSS). The required credits vary for each degree. Students must maintain at least a GPA of 2.5 in these courses in order to graduate.

Major Courses

These are courses specifically required for a major within a degree program e.g., BA, BBA, BS, etc. Students must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA in these courses in order to graduate.

Minor

All programs offer a minor in each of the major areas.  Students may choose to do a minor in addition to their major by completing additional course requirements. The minor  broadens students’ specialization and increases their marketability. A student may complete the requirements for a minor  without increasing the total credit-hour requirements for the BBA degree because the same courses may fulfil the open elective requirement of the selected major.

Open Electives

Any course selected by a student to fulfill the degree requirement, after core, major, minor and general education requirements are satisfied, is an open elective course. These are selected according to availability and student’s preference.

Dual Major

Departments and programs also offer opportunity for dual major.  A student has to fulfill the requirements for two majorareas to obtain a dual major.

Internship

An internship is a program whereby a student, usually after completing all courses, undertakes an affiliation with an organization, under faculty supervision, for the purpose of applying knowledge gained from their NSU studies and to gain experience in the business world. The Career and Placement Center (CPC) provides assistance to students in arranging internships.  Such experiences must be approved in advance by a faculty advisor.   An internship can last from 8-10 weeks. Special projects or research work of high standard may be substituted for an internship when formally authorized in advance by the Academic Council. 

 

Residency

A minimum of 60 of the total credits required for the bachelor degree must be earned at NSU as a degree student. Transferred credits and/or credits by exam may be applied towards the remaining requirement.

Student Records

 

University Policy

NSU maintains various student records to document academic progress and to record interactions with university staff and officials.  To protect each student's right to privacy the university has an established policy for handling student records. Interpretation of this policy is based on experience with educational records, and the policy itself may subsequently be modified in light of this experience.

Directory Information

Certain information concerning students is considered to be open to the public upon inquiry.  This public information is called directory information and includes a student's name, local address, telephone number, mailing address, major, classification, date and place of birth, dates of attendance at NSU, awards and academic honors, degrees and dates awarded, previously attended educational institutions, participation in officially recognized university activities and sports, and the height and weight of members of athletic teams. Directory information, as defined above, will be released for individual students by the Office of the Registrar to anyone upon inquiry, unless the student has requested within ten days after registering that specific items not be released.  The student's request to have directory information withheld must be submitted for each semester the student is registered and should be made at the Office of the Registrar, which will notify other appropriate university offices.

Confidential Information

With the exception of the information noted above, student records are generally considered to be confidential.  Each type of student record is the responsibility of a designated university official. This official and the person to whom he reports, the Vice Chancellor, and the Pro Vice Chancellor have the authority to release the record.

Release of Grades

Reports of students’ grades are routinely sent to the students.  Parents of dependent students may request grades in writing to the University Registrar.  Proof of dependency is required. The grades of all other students will be sent to their parents only with written permission of the student.

 

Withholding Records

In the case of a student who is delinquent in any account to the University, or against whom official disciplinary action has been taken, the appropriate university official may request that the student's record be withheld. As a result transcripts are not released and registration forms are withheld.  In order for the action to be rescinded, the Registrar's Office must receive written authorization from the official who originally requested the action, indicating that the student has met the obligation.

 

Transcripts

A transcript is a certified, official copy of a student's academic record.  Because the transcript contains confidential information, it cannot be furnished or released to anyone but the student or parents of dependent students with a letter of authorization signed by the student. Current students should submit library clearance with transcript request.  Each transcript costs BT 300.00. The required fee must be paid in advance.  A transcript request must be made in person or in writing to the Registrar's Office. It cannot be taken over the telephone.  Transcript requests will not be honored for a student with a delinquency to the University.

Provisional Certificate
A student can apply for Provisional Certificate only when the student fulfills all requirements for the degree.  An application for Provisional Certificate should be completed by the student in a prescribed form, available from the Registrar’s Office.  A Provisional Certificate costs BT 2,000.00, which must be paid in advance to NSU Accounts Section during application.  The Provisional Certificate must be returned to the Registrar’s Office to collect the original Degree Certificate. The Original Certificate will not be issued if the Provisional Certificate is not surrendered.

Grading Policy

 

Letter grades indicating the quality of course work completed are normally interpreted as follows. The exact cut off point for assigning letter grades, however, is at the discretion of the individual instructor of record.  The same applies to the assignment of + or - after a letter grade.  It is meant to give more flexibility so that shades of performance can be distinguished and rewarded.  The + and - has a value of 0.3 grade point.

 

Suggested Scores    Letter Grade           Grade Points

                                                                  Per Credit
93 and above            A  Excellent             4.0
90 – 92                     A-                             3.7
87 – 89                     B+                            3.3
83 – 86                     B  Good                   3.0
80 – 82                     B-                             2.7
77 – 79                     C+                            2.3
73 – 76                     C  Average               2.0
70 – 72                     C-                             1.7
67 – 69                     D+                            1.3
60 – 66                     D  Poor                     1.0
Below 60                  F*  Failure                0.0
I** Incomplete         0.0
W** Withdrawal     0.0

*    Credits for courses with this grade do not apply towards graduation.
** Credits for courses with this grade do not apply towards graduation and they are not accepted in the calculation of the grade point average.

 

Grade Point Average (GPA)

Students' grade-point averages are numerical values obtained by dividing the total grade points earned by the credits attempted.  Only courses graded A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, and F are used to determine credits attempted. 
Only the grades earned in the courses that are required for a degree are included in the GPA calculation. Grades earned in other courses are reported on the transcript but are not counted in calculating the GPA.

 

Grade Change

Grade change is strongly discouraged. Letter grades may be changed only for posting errors or errors in calculation. If a grade change is inevitable, it must be completed within one semester following the submission of the grade. The program directors and department chairs will ask for necessary papers and records to substantiate the grade change.

 

Incomplete (I)

The grade of Incomplete (I) may be used in special circumstances. The Incomplete may be given only at the end of a semester to a student whose work is progressing, but who has left unfinished a small amount of work for completion without further class attendance. The instructor must file with the Registrar an Incomplete Grade Form describing the work to be completed, indicating a tentative final grade to be assigned if the work is not completed and the time period in which the work must be completed no longer than the following semester.
The student has the responsibility to take the initiative in completing the work and is expected to make up the incomplete as specified by the instructor.  If action is not taken the "I" grade will revert to the tentative final grade.  The final grade becomes an "F" if no tentative grade is assigned.  In the event the instructor from whom a student received an incomplete is not available, the disposition of a case involving an incomplete grade resides with the Head of the Department. The grade ‘I’ must be replaced within one semester after the grade is assigned.

Withdrawal (W)

The grade Withdrawal (W) is assigned when a student officially drops a course during the period between the ends of the third and sixth weeks.  Prior to that time if a student drops a course no entry is made on the academic record. A "W" does not affect the student's GPA.

Retaking Courses

Students may choose to repeat a course, but such repetition will be allowed only once for each course. The student can retake a course irrespective of grade achieved.  When a student retakes a course, the latest grade will be recorded instead of “R”.  When a student retakes a course in which s/he received “F” grade earlier, s/he must apply not to include the “F” grades in his/her GPA calculation. An “F” grade earned in any credit course will be used to calculate GPA until the course is retaken and an application is submitted.  The retake policy in case of courses with “F” grades will apply immediately to all students at NSU irrespective of their date of enrollment. This retake policy is effective from Summer 2005 semester.

Students who wish to retake a course must register for the course again and will be assessed tuition and applicable fees. 

Abandoning Course

A grade of “F” will be recorded for students who have not fulfilled academic obligations and have not obtained a grade, and for students who abandon their courses without officially withdrawing from a course.

NSU LIBRARY
North South University (NSU) Library has grown over the years since 1992 and now it is one of the best university libraries in the country. This is the first fully automated university library in the country that uses RFID based library management system. It is a customized bi-lingual Library Management Software developed by NSU Library. This software supports MARC-21, which allows web-based online lending and receiving, browsing databases, accessing AV materials, journals, newspapers and magazines, searching full-text online books and journals, creating institutional repositories, tracking circulation system, maintain RFID self check and book drop records, auto email alert services etc. Its online databases provide full access to all users, facilitate navigation and reservation of books from distant workstations through its own website http://library.northsouth.edu. The users can also check their borrowing status, renew issued resources and can reserve three books at a time for 48 hours through the library website. This is the only university library in Bangladesh where the Library of Congress Classification System is being used to organize and arrange books, reports, journals and other resources.
The library has introduced state-of-the-art technology called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Based Library Management System to automate library operation and management for the first time in the country in December 2012. It was financed by the World Bank and the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh under the Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP). Now, the library users themselves can issue and return books using Self-Check and Book-Drop machines. They can also track the books on shelves using tracking machines. The library consists of six floors with an area of over 70,000 sq.ft at the southeast side of the NSU campus at Bashundhara, Dhaka. It can accommodate over 1,200 students at a time in its well-furbished reading rooms. On an average 2,000 users use the library every day.
A total of around 50,500 books, reports and bound journals, over 50,000 e-books, around 40,000 online journals, 1,893 CD ROM books and databases, 226 DVDs and videos, 159 audio-cassettes and a good number of other resources of the library cover all branches of knowledge. In addition to these collections, the library subscribed to print issues of 46 foreign journals and 19 local journals, 18 foreign and 22 local magazines, two foreign dailies and almost all leading national dailies of Bangladesh. The NSU library is the pioneer of subscribing online journals and MyAthens in the country. It started subscription of online journals with JSTOR, IEEE, ACM Digital library and 39 titles of online journals in various disciplines for the first time in 2002. It has also started subscription to e-resource databases, namely EconLit, AHEAD and Global Development Finance, since 1998. Now the library has access to over 40,000 titles of full-text online research journals in various disciplines from 52 agencies and publishers. All registered members of NSU library get access to online journals and e-books databases from inside and outside campus through the internet.
The NSU library started developing its online journals and book repositories in 2003. These repositories cover books and articles written by teachers, students and researchers of NSU; and full-text articles of 160 subscribed online journals from 2002 till date. The number of articles and books of these repositories are over 23,500 and it is increasing day by day. Besides these, the library has been developing ETD and electronic news clippings database.

NSU Students Clubs

Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are extremely important for modern universities, especially for aiding students with the best chance for shaping their future. Skills development has been embedded in academic programs as well as extra-curricular activities at North South University (NSU). The Plaza area, recreation center, boys lounge and upper deck gallery, OAT etc. remain busy throughout the year with programs and events organized by various student bodies of the university. Our newly constructed auditorium, with its all modern amenities, is an addition to this list of places that facilitates students’ activities to a great extent these days.

The prime objective of these clubs is to engage students in result-oriented activities and to help prepare them as socially responsible and worthy citizens of the country. By now the number of student clubs has reached 20 and they are all working in different socio-economic, cultural, environmental and scientific fronts. Nevertheless, in a recent move the university authority has merged some of the old clubs in a new setting to facilitate the emergence of some more new clubs. 

Almost all the departments and institutes have their aligned co-curricular or extra-curricular activities run by an individual faculty adviser. Every club has its own Executive Body (EB) consensually formed by club members for a one-year period. To become and remain an EB member, students have to maintain 3.00 or above GPA. Clubs have to design their annual event calendar and roadmaps at the beginning of the financial year and an annual budget of about taka two crore is spent by the university to carry forward such activities. Student bodies would also collect outside endowments through prior approval from the appropriate authority to bear the additional costs of big events, if necessary. The prime objective of the club activities is to provide hands-on training to the participating members for their future team management and leadership role. Alphabetically some of the club activities are as follows:

Art & Photography Club
To promote awareness in the art and science of photography among the students and keep visual records of their performances, NSU Photography Club (NSUPC) was established in 1997. The club organizes intra, inter-university and international inter-university photography competitions to influence and promote the art of photography among teachers and students. Competitors submit photos during the call for photos and from them the best selected photographs are exhibited and awarded. The club also organizes national/international Photography Field Trip every year. For the first time NSUPC has introduced an inter NSUPC exhibition named Rising Star to make the new members enthusiastic. In June 2015, the Art & Photography Club launched Honorable Eyes to demonstrate the enthusiasm of the faculty members in photography besides their professional engagement in classroom teaching.

Athletics Club
Originally born in summer 1995, NSU Games and Sports Club (NSUSC) has been renamed recently as the Athletics Club. Over the years this club has gone beyond the horizons of its own space by capturing most of the Champion prizes in the inter-university tournaments in recent years. Members of the club have been showing superb performance in conducting sports activities both within and beyond the campus. The club also conducted live projection of some very important international sports events, and organized female games and sports events for the first time in the history of private universities in Bangladesh. With the recent inauguration of a playground and basketball court at NSU, the club members are now looking forward to have their gymnasium ready for use.

 

Cine & Drama Club

North South University Cine & Drama Club (NSUCDC) is best known for promoting the admiration of the art of cinema and theatre. The club staged A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare in its annual drama along with a brochure in 2014. But the club’s actual impact on its members and the people around is much more than what its mere description suggests. It not only strengthens the knowledge of art, theatre and cinema, but it also helps its members bring out their insightful views and experience about life and society—a side which is usually hidden and unknown. The club does so by allowing its members to explore themselves, in line with what the refreshing motto of the club suggests. The club was officially launched on 22 September 1996.

Communication Club
In order to develop the communication skills of the university students the NSU authority, in a recent move, merged the Debate Club (NSUDC) with English Club under the banner of Communication Club. Following the merger, the Communication Club will have now two segments: (i) the Debating Society and (ii) the English Society. Over the years the erstwhile Debate Club has brought a significant number of national and international recognitions to the university through participating and winning in local and overseas debate tournaments. Members regularly take part in the television parliamentary debates. The club itself also organizes regularly Bangla and English inter- and intra- university debate tournaments. This club has its yearly publication Hear Hearthat appears with exclusive write up from debaters and adjudicators from within the country and beyond.

Erstwhile, English Club also provided a platform for students who are fond of writing creatively in English. In February 2015, they organized a workshop on Public Speaking Competition. This segment of the Communication Club also organized poetry reading sessions and literary seminars where well-known local writers, poets and dramatists are invited to participate. The current goals of this cluster include uniting students in creative writing, giving them a platform for discussion and participation, and encouraging students to bring out a magazine English Matters.

Computer & Engineering Club

In a recent inventiveness the NSU authority also has merged the erstwhile Wireless Forum and Society of Science Engineering & Technology with the Computer Club (NSUCC). The newly formed Computer & Engineering Club (CEC) tries to integrate the students with the ICT industry and telecommunication world to cope with the latest trends in computer technology. With a few hundred active members, this club is moving forward with new scientific experiments and ideas. This is a platform where the students can bring out the best within them, discover, and flourish their innate talent and passion. The club provides a research and development environment, tools for project implementation, and most other resources required for exploring the vast dynamic field of computer engineering. Its annual publication Assembler is not just a technology-based publication, but has been a compilation of the very ideology of the Computer Club for last 21 years. Besides innovative programs and important events, students also enjoy their thrilling and enjoyable moments by organizing games, tours, or even BBQ party!
Diversity Club
The purpose of the newly created Diversity Club (NSUDC) is to maintain inclusiveness among the students of North South University in terms of religion, region, race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and political beliefs. The club members believe that as an institution we can flourish if the individual groups are recognized and their uniqueness is respected as equal partners to maintain a common bond. By essence ‘unity out of diversity’ is the core principle of this club and integration, rather than assimilation, is emphasized by its leaders. Because the risks of non-recognition of diversity could lead to conflict, tension, confusion and create discomfort for individual members. Diversity Club aims to make NSU a safe and harmonious place to support and nurture the diverse culture of our students and staff.

Earth Club

North South University Earth Club (NSUEC) believes that every small step caring for the environment counts, and united we can conquer the mammoth environmental problems. Earth Club started off in 1996, and since then the Club has seen perpetual growth and hit remarkable milestones. The members strive to raise environmental awareness amongst the NSU community and in the neighborhood areas.

Its annual magazine Green Reflections is a great initiative for spreading environmental awareness among the people.

Ethics Club
The main objective of this newly formed club is to address the problem of corruption and abuse of power in the society by strengthening the practice of integrity, ethical behavior and moral conduct among the members of the NSU community. It is believed that the practice of ethics among youngsters can contribute to mobilizing and building a national consensus on the ethics and integrity of values and in improving governance in the country. This club works to enhance and synergize collaboration and coordination strategies for developing programs, activities, and resources in the process of promoting integrity and ethics in public governance.

Marketing Club

Recently created, the Marketing Club (TMC) is the ultimate platform for all students of NSU who are majoring in Marketing or feels passionately towards this field.  The club has already accomplished its recruitment process plus a few minor events in the area of marketing.

In a 2-hour long seminar ‘Know the unknown and learn from the experts’, TMC presented three experts from three different organizations for revealing some secrets of their work process with the students and faculties. They demonstrated the client-agency relationship in a promotional management spectrum. The main objective of the seminar was to link the practices of marketing operations with the theoretical knowledge. TMC is undoubtedly a great platform to exercise creativity for those who wish to pursue the career of a marketer.

MBA Club

The North South University MBA Club has been working since 1997 as a club for MBA students. It was established to help students improve their managerial skills, foster mutually beneficial relationships among the business world, and obtain better career opportunities. As the club is committed to bringing business and academia together, it regularly plans and organizes different events to help its members improve themselves by challenging their managerial, social, and knowledge skills. Its publication, The Annual Resume Book, portrays the curriculum vitae of the North South University graduates. The club regularly organizes Industrial Tour.

In July-August 2015, this club is organizing for the first time NSU Model UN Conference having adjudicators from overseas.

The club staged its 19th ACE in the newly built auditorium on 9th and 10th June 2015. NSUSS team has been extremely talented, passionate, innovative, and dedicated to bring out their excellence in creative potentials.

 

Social Services Club

To keep up their identity as ‘social being’—the club members annually organize Blood Donation Drive and sponsor Eid donations to the destitute. Believing in the principle of ‘Love can be kept only by being given away,’ they collect thousand bags of blood for the Quantum Foundation for its distribution to patients in need, distribute food items among the poor families for making their Eid Special, or generate anti-drugs and anti-smoking campaigns to address social problems. All these good works not only help the deviant and down trodden population in the society; but also elevate the reputation of the university in the neighborhood areas. Socio Camp is also another unique event that the club organizes every year for poor children.  In 2015, they collected a good amount of money and relief materials for the earthquake victims in Nepal. This club also takes a lead role in organizing the annual Doa Mahfil, and annual picnic.

Besides, YES also organizes a few other events that are related to grooming up a business student for future life.

Final words

Compared to violent campus politics in public universities, student clubs at NSU have been promoting agenda-setting activities for students welfare and benefits. Through these positive engagements students are learning about the art of public leadership, techniques of managing diversity, voluntary participation in welfare activities, shaping democratic values and reaching consensus oriented decisions, and planning community based event management. Students are encouraged to be part of the club activities in a positive manner in order to achieve result oriented goals and objectives. Using the club facilities many students are showing their abilities and nurturing the beauty of their dreams.
