Recently, in a syndicate meeting for the postgraduate program of Dhaka University, some policies have been formulated for the implementation of the rule. According to the new policy, the admission process for masters will start in next February-March. The matter was discussed in a meeting of the Deans Committee of the University on August 30 last year. Later on October 30, this decision was taken in a meeting of the syndicate held at Nawab Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Building. According to the policy published by the Syndicate- Science department students should have a sum of GPA of 8 in SSC and HSC exams and 3.5 separately. Humanities students must have a minimum GPA of 7.5 plus 3 separately and business education students must have a minimum GPA of 7.5 plus 3 separately.

Outside students will be admitted in the number of seats that remain vacant after admission of regular students of DU.

Outside students will be admitted in the number of seats that remain vacant after admission of regular students of DU. If the conditions are fulfilled, the aspirants will have to appear in written test of 100 marks and viva test. Departments and institutes will conduct admission tests separately and offer admission to students based on merit list. These students will not get residential facility in the university. However, this provision may be relaxed for foreign students.

From the academic year 2022-23, the departments of DU will be able to admit external students for postgraduate studies, said the Vice-Chancellor (Education) of DU, Professor ASM Maqsood Kamal. DU has 6270 postgraduate seats in 83 departments and 13 institutes. Many students go abroad or join jobs after graduation. As a result many post graduate seats remain vacant.
