HEC releases names of more than 180 unrecognized universities

Avatar Written by Sarwat Fatima · 6 min read>

The education sector in Pakistan is one of the most poorly managed sectors which has been allotted the lowest shares in almost all of the recent budget plans proposed. This indicates the government’s priority level for educational progress in Pakistan. It was no surprise that HEC released a list of 185 unrecognized universities both in public and private sectors which are imparting education illegally. Moreover, a lot of these universities are making a fool out of citizens with fake affiliations to foriegn institutions

An HEC spokeswoman stated: “We have been writing letters to the universities/institutions asking them either to get NOC or close down these universities. But unfortunately, their response is not encouraging. It is our duty to point out such illegal campuses. Therefore, we have put their names on our website, have published ads and are requesting parents to be aware of such institutions. Now the departments concerned should also take action against such institutions”.

The government needs to put up extra efforts to either shut down these universities and accommodate the students to other recognized universities or speed up the process of getting these universities recognized immediately.

Here is the list of 185 unrecognized universities operating in Pakistan. Share this news with your family and friends to raise awareness against unlawful education institutes.
