International University of Scholars (IUS) is the brainchild of few Bangladeshi educationists, researchers and philanthropists presently working in Dhaka as well as in North American Universities and Research Centers. This group came to Dhaka in 2015 with a vision to establish a new research based University in Bangladesh to provide quality higher education and to promote scholarly excellence in educational research. This idea is materialized through the formation of IUS.
IUS is an independent, nonsectarian institution of higher learning based on American Curriculum. The university is temporarily located at F/15 Pragati Sarani, Middle Badda, Dhaka. A new permanent campus is being developed near Purbachal, Dhaka.
The academic activities at the university are primarily organized through its 4 Schools and 8 departments which will eventually offer undergraduate and graduate programs in the fields of Arts, Science, Engineering and Business Studies.
IUS received its official approval from the Ministry of Education, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh on December 29th, 2015.
