A great many students pass the higher secondary examination every year but there are only a handful of universities in our country. The number of state-run universities is limited, such as Dhaka University, Rajshahi University, Chittagong University, Jahangirnagar University, Shah Jalal University, Khulna University, Agricultural University, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology(BUET), National University,
Open University etc. there are also a number of private number of private universities. So the universities in our country are divided into state-run universities and private universities. They offer courses in a wide range of subjects. The tuition fees of the state-run universities are within the means of the common man. But the tuition fees in the private universities are very high. Only the rich can afford to study there. The system of education in Bangladesh was quite different from the British system of education but now the educational system has been changed in line with educational systems in the modern world.
