FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

1. What is BRAC University Residential Campus?

Brac University’s (BracU) Residential Semester (RS) at Savar campus is unique amongst higher education experiences in Bangladesh. The RS offers a holistic curriculum based on the principle of ‘experiential learning’, which cultivates a broad range of soft skills and qualities, to compliment the theoretical development that students undergo. The conference’s intensive programs (delivered mainly in English) help to develop rounded individuals, whose improved leadership skills, ability to independently face challenges, and proficiency in English will better prepare them to face the challenges of higher education (and eventually give them a competitive edge in the job market). The Residential Semester takes place at a specially designed campus in Savar, which provides a support system that aids students in becoming confident and self-reliant.
