HED Private Universities Admission Ban
Lahore, Higher Education Department Lahore took action against 18 private universities across Punjab to grant admissions to the aspirants in different disciplines. It is added that these private sector universities and degree awarding institutes did not follow the instructions of the HED and they started their unapproved and unauthorized programs and disciplines. The courses of some of the disciplines are not approved. Some of the universities have set up their unauthorized campuses and they start giving education to the candidates. Some of the private universities set up medical and dental faculties or started their engineering and technology disciplines but they did not get approval from the respective authorized entities like PMDC or PEC.
Now the higher education department Punjab asked these private universities and degree awarding institutes to send the requests for authorization or the regularization of unauthorized programs or their campuses to the PHED before 26 September 2018. HED asked the managements of these private universities and educational institutes to get approved their programs, which were declared unapproved or unauthorized.
