ISLAMABAD: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) on Friday advised parents and students to seek admission only in HEC’s recognised universities, degree awarding institutes and their approved campuses.
The HEC made the alert so that students may not fall prey to universities, institutes and campuses illegally operating in the country. There are 27 recognised HEC universities in Islamabad, 26 in Karachi and 21 in Lahore. The HEC also has one campus each in Gilgit, Abbottabad, Multan, Faisalabad, Bhawalpur, Dir, Bannu, Swat, Topi and Mansehra.
