ISLAMABAD: EducationUSA on Monday hosted orientation sessions at the United States Education Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP) for the 194 students in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.

The students will start undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate programs at colleges and universities throughout the US, a statement said on Monday.

This is the highest number in the last five years.

“Your child’s education is the best investment you can make and the US is the best possible destination for higher education,” said USEFP Executive Director Rita Akhtar. “I encourage other parents and students to visit our EducationUSA offices to see how we can help make their dream of a US degree possible” she added.
