HSBC teams up with IUB to assist students for overseas study
The HSBC has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) to assist students planning for overseas education.
Students, alumni and faculty members of IUB will be facilitated with different benefits for pursuing their overseas education ambitions. HSBC will also offer exclusive sessions on higher education overseas for IUB.
From the initial requirements of preparing a student file and facilitating payments to opening an overseas account with HSBC in top education destinations, HSBC will provide the perfect head-start with all the essential banking services throughout the whole process, the bank said in a press release.
HSBC's International Education is a comprehensive proposition catering the overseas education needs of Bangladeshi students, it said.
Ahmed Saiful Islam, head of wealth and personal banking at HSBC Bangladesh, said: "As the best international retail bank in Bangladesh, we value and understand the importance of having the right banking partner for those who have the ambition to achieve the best overseas education. With the strength of the Bank's international network and our connectivity with the leading education partners, we continue to open up a world of opportunities for our customers."
"With HSBC's support, getting ready to study abroad has never been easier. Right from sharing our customised country fact sheets to evaluate a destination to having an overseas account sitting right here in Bangladesh, we offer a full range of banking solutions and services to international students," said Gitanka Debdip Datta, head of customer value management at HSBC Bangladesh.
