ISLAMABAD (The News International) The world’s first fee-free university will be operational next month in Pakistan with 600 students enrolled for three different master degrees.
Dr Mohammed Amjad Saqib, executive director of a micro-finance firm offering interest-free loans (Qarz-e-Hasna) in Pakistan, told Khaleej Times that 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 an education and pay after 5, 10 or 20 years when you are able to return it; because remember that you got an education but didn’t pay for it, but now when you have a job you can pay so that somebody else can also benefit,” he said.
Dr Amjad Saqib added that “education is the ultimate solution to our problems. We can’t progress and compete with international community unless we are ahead in education. But it is a pity that a boy coming from a poor family may be able to complete 10-year education but can’t receive higher education. We are not doing justice with our talent”.
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.
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.
