The University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGC) has found that an unauthorized study centre is operating in Dhaka using the name “London School of Commerce.”

The study centre named “London School of Commerce Dhaka (LSC Dhaka)” did not receive permission from the government and also the UGC to run here, said a UGC release on Tuesday.

The study centre offers different diploma, bachelor’s, and master’s, and doctoral degrees under three UK institutions - Wrexham Glyndŵr University, University of Bedfordshire, and Scottish Qualifications Authority.

The study centre opened a website (https://www.lscdhaka.org/) in 2007.

Its admission ads have recently come to the notice of UGC. The LSC Dhaka has been running its operation since 2005.

The LSC Dhaka opened two offices in Dhaka – one at Gulshan Centre in Gulshan 2 and another at Ocean Tower in Banani.

The centre offers BA (Hons) Business Studies, Master of Business Administration, Foundation in Business, Professional Diploma in International Business degrees from the two places.

The duration of the courses is from eight month to two years. The admission in the courses will start in May next.

According to its website, LSC Dhaka in collaboration with its partner universities has been offering fast-track degrees like BA (Hon’s) and MBA at affordable fees.

It is said that the students of LSC Dhaka would have scope to transfer their credits to the international campus of its partner universities located in different places including London, Malta, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.

UGC member Prof Dr Biswajit Chanda , who is in-charge of private universities, said no branch or study centre of any foreign university and institution can operate admission or academic activities in Bangladesh.

It is absolutely illegal according to the articles 3 (3) and 39 of the Private University Act 2010, he said. 

The UGC member asked the students and job seekers to remain alert over the admission in such study centres.

Prof Chanda asked the authorities concerned of the government to take measures to shut down the unauthorized study centre soon.
