Pakistan to Open Fee-Free University Next Month
Akhuwat University is the world’s first fee-free university will be operational next month in Pakistan with 600 students enrolled for three different master degrees. The institute will be opened in Kasur district, near Lahore, on August 14, 2018.
“We are establishing the first fee-free university in Pakistan where students will not have to pay any fee. This is some kind of long-term Qarz-e-Hasan. First you get education and pay after 5, 10 or 20 years, when you are able to return it; because remember that you got education but didn’t pay for it; but now when you have a job you can pay so that somebody else can also benefit,” said the executive director of Akhuwat.
He pointed out that this residential university will be a national institute where 20 per cent of students will come from each province of Pakistan.
Akhuwat is already running a fee-free college in Lahore, housing more than 300 students from all provinces.
It offers pre-medical, pre-engineering and ICT courses.
To get entry into the college, a student must obtain 75 per cent marks in matriculation examination followed by an examination conducted at the college.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
