QAU >> Message from VC

I welcome you to Quaid-i-Azam University, the premier seat of learning in Pakistan. QAU has consistently been ranked the top university in the country by the Higher Education Commission. In addition, according to U.S. News and World Report, QAU is the only academic institution in Pakistan among the top 500 universities in the world. As a student here, you are a member of a privileged and distinguished group.

Faculty along with students in our Masters, M. Phil, and Ph.D. programmes produce world-class research, as is evident from the high-quality outlets in which their scholarship appears.

Our faculty members have received numerous awards, both nationally and internationally for their research. Many of our students have gone on to highly productive careers in academia, as well as governmental and international organizations.

Unlike many research universities, QAU views quality teaching as a pivotal part of its commitment to students. Faculty members are readily available, and are often to be found in the late evenings working in their offices or laboratories.

Nestled in the backdrop of the Margalla Hills, our seventeen hundred acre campus provides a serene environment for the serious scholar. The natural beauty of the campus in a near-rural setting belies the fact that we are only fifteen minutes away from the bustling, urban metropolis of Islamabad.

In choosing to be a student at Pakistan’s most elite academic institution, you have made a wise choice. Along with the staff and faculty, I as Vice Chancellor, look forward to the opportunity to serve you, and provide you with the best academic experience possible.
