Organization[edit] It is a postgraduate teaching and research university as well as an affiliating university. It is state-run and public. The university has a school and a centre. It has established institutes that provide courses leading to M.Phil. and PhD degrees. The Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences (IHS) was introduced in 1997 to offer two-year M.Phil. following modern American credit hour and semester system including course work, two-month internship and thesis guided by supervisor. The M.Phil. is an interdisciplinary degree which is intensive enough to help the students to pursue PhD courses. The course is open to faculty members who are employed at universities and colleges. Four more institutes – the Institute of Liberation and Bangladesh Studies (ILBS), Institutes of National Science (INS), Institute of Life Sciences (ILS), and Institute of Business and Management Studies (IBMS) – have all the formalities complete toward their constitutions and are soon to provide higher courses related to science, needs of life, and national heritage. Very few of the teachers teaching at honours and masters level have higher training. The training programme of the university is designed to augment the knowledge of the college teachers, enhance their skill in teaching and get them an exposure to higher ideas. Eminent educationists and scholars of the country are associated with the academic programmes provided on campus. There are four academic units:

School of Under Graduate Studies Centre for Post-Graduate Studies Training & Research M. Phil./Ph.D.Programme Unit Centre for Curriculum Development and Evaluation

The school and centres organise education in colleges and improve the standard. The university provides bachelor's, honours and master's degrees in ten disciplines: languages, humanities, social science, commerce and business administration, physical sciences, mathematical sciences, biological science, education, law and computer technology. Apart from the units providing campus teaching at Board Bazar, Gazipur, the university has about 1,688[2] component/affiliated colleges. These colleges under its academic control cater for courses leading to Pass, Honours and master's degrees. The university exercises academic control over the colleges according to the National University Act 1992 mandated by the National Parliament of Bangladesh and the statutes of the university. It provides the curricula and syllabi, arranges admission test, gives guidelines for admission, arranges inspection, holds examination, publishes results, and awards certificates. The college curricula and syllabi are being standardised and modernised in consonance with national ideology. The new syllabuses came into effect from the last academic session.[when?] The National University of Bangladesh
is now the fifth largest university in the world after its 17-year history by its number of registered students at affiliated colleges.[3] It is also one of the largest universities in the world by number of affiliated colleges and number of expanding subjects and courses.
