NUST (National University of Sciences and Technology) has marked another milestone in terms of international recognization. According to the report of Gulf News, the university is soon going to open its campuses in UAE and Saudi Arabia. The decision was taken in order to expand its global worth.
The announcement was made when Rector NUST Lt-General (retired) Naweed Zaman told the international media, that NUST is planning to expand to other countries. While discussing the news, he further told the university is working hard on the matter for a long time and intends to open these campuses soon. The plan is to execute the plan within 2-3 years.
Lt-Gen Zaman said:
“Our priority is to open the NUST campus in the UAE first as we are talking to the authorities concerned. We are increasing our visibility around the world to attract more Pakistani expatriates and foreign students.”
He also shed some light on the scholarship policies:
“Our university is very young but it is the best in Pakistan. We don’t turn away students for lack of mutual funds if they manage to pass the admission test. You can either be a part of the endowment programme, adopt a student for full four years or sponsor a student for just one year.”
Not to forget that NUST is already one of the top ranking universities in the country. It is also in the top 500 universities and top 150 young universities in the world. NUST proves to be the best universities in Pakistan, yet again.
