Bangladesh is ranking third this year in terms of number of awarded scholarships, says a press release.

The Bangladeshi students have received a scholarship to study in various European cities for completing a Masters degree in areas such as data science, engineering, climate change, gender studies, circular economy, public health, public policy and human rights.

Hans Lambrecht, Chargé d'Affaires of EU said: "A flagship programme like Erasmus+, with a strong external dimension that aims to promote people-to-people exchanges, can and should be a game-changer. The new, larger programme for the period 2021-2027 has an increased budget of €26.2 billion.

It enables the EU to support new initiatives and attract an even greater number of participants. Worldwide and in Bangladesh, the demand for highly skilled, socially engaged people is increasing.”

He said Erasmus+ helps the Bangladeshi beneficiaries be the connector between Europe and Bangladesh.
