We organize and celebrate Bangladesh Week every year with the dual aims of showing the rich culture of our motherland and increasing the cohesion in the Bangladeshi community at APU. Among the more than 90 countries and regions represented at APU, Bangladesh is quickly becoming one of the most prominent communities in terms of academic achievements and extracurricular activities.

Drawing together a variety of students, this serves as one of the best places to showcase the talents and skills of students from Bangladesh as they work together with members of our international community. Bangladesh Week has been held consecutively for the past two years, and our community firmly believes in growth and continuity.

As of this semester, the Bangladeshi community at APU it the sixth largest, with around 92 Bangladeshi students. With your help, we plan on creating a multicultural week bigger and better than ever.
