Number of Bangladeshi students studying abroad triples over 16 years


Mohiuddin Alamgir of University World News reports that the number of students from Bangladesh studying abroad has tripled over the last 16 years. The author states that Canada is among the top destinations for Bangladeshi students; other receiving countries include the United States, United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and Malaysia. Alamgir reports that this has resulted in a “brain drain” in Bangladesh, as many students do not return after completing their studies abroad.
