[See Details] HEC introduces its new Undergraduate policy

Here are the details.

HEC invites proposals for the China Pakistan Economic Corridor-Collaborative Research Grant (CPEC-CRG).

The Higher Education Commission, in its latest Undergraduate policy, issued some credit and non-credit hours of practical learning, General Education, and internship.

The initiative has been taken to improve the quality of university education by creating some skills in the university. 

In order to develop writing skills, university students will take some quantitative thinking and descriptive writing courses. However, students will choose an option from entrepreneurship, a youth club, and sports for practical learning. 

According to the policy, the commission will also make religious studies and Pakistani studies compulsory for students as a part of Pakistan studies under the GE section.

The HEC policy also stated that the internship is compulsory for the four and five-year degree programs. However, these internships will be non-credited, so their scores will not be included in the grading system.

After consultation and approval from the concerned council, these changes will be included in the syllabus of a few five-year professional graduate programs. The policy will be put into effect from June.

Meanwhile, the Association of Private Sector Universities Pakistan has raised some objections against the policy, claiming it has been produced in haste. Apart from that, APSUP has also recommended taking all the stakeholders on board.
