According to that policy, sudden death of a guardian wouldn’t interrupt academic life of a student in Daffodil International University. If any guardian dies just after admitting her son/ daughter in Daffodil Internatioal University, the university authority would bear his/ her restof the cost to continue his/ her academic life and in this regard Daffodil International University signed an agreement of Guardian’s Insurance Policy with Pragati Life Insurance which is first ever of its kind in Bangladesh.
