Pakistan: Going abroad to study

Shirazi at Light Within reflects on why so many students from Pakistan go abroad to study. “In 1947, there was only one University of the Punjab. Today, we have almost 35 universities in the public sector, more than 100 in the private sector, and this number is growing with newer disciplines being added every year. After the new concept of private education has taken over, many private universities have shown their results whereas some of them have even left their mark on world map.”
