Admissions 2017-18

Introduction
Established in June, 1951 the University of Karachi is known as one of the premier
centers of teaching and research in the sub-continent and the third world. A large number
of students from Karachi and other parts of the country are desirous of admission at this
university for its high standard of education and highly qualified faculty. A number of
scientists and scholars affiliated with the University are working in important positions
both within and outside Pakistan and have won significant recognition and acclaim. One
of the institutes of the University has got the distinction of being named as the Centre of
the Third World Academy of Sciences. Students from several foreign countries are also
pursuing for the Masters and Doctorate degrees. As the population of the city is
increasing day by day, it is a real challenge for the University to accommodate all the
applicants in various courses of studies in the morning program. Hence, to meet the
increasing demand of education in various disciplines, the university has been running
the Evening Programs in several departments at the Masters, BS, B.A./B.Sc.(Hons.),
Diploma and Certificate levels since the Directorate of Evening Program was established
in 1995 to administer the Evening Program. The curricula for Morning and Evening
programs are identical for the awards of university's degrees. In most cases, same
teachers as well as the same laboratories and library facilities are available to the students
of the morning and evening programs. Attendance, teaching and examination standard
are the same for both the shifts.
At present, teaching in the University campus is conducted under eight faculties; Faculty
of Social Sciences, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Islamic
Studies, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Management & Administrative Sciences, Faculty of
Pharmacy and Faculty of Science. As many as 54 departments and over 19 research
institute/centers are imparting education to more than 35,000 students including students
from foreign countries. The faculty comprises more than 650 highly qualified and
experienced teachers; many of them have obtained higher degrees from abroad and
earned international repute. The non-teaching staff comprises more than 2500 members
to help with administrative and other matters.

The University of Karachi is also an affiliating and examining body. At present, more
than 145 colleges and institutions are affiliated to the University. The courses of studies
for these institutions are approved by the University and examinations are also conducted
under its auspices. The University conducts examination of about 150,000 students
studying in these colleges/institutes, and prepares their results and awards degrees.

Students' Affairs
To look after students affairs in general, and to supervise their extra curricular activities,
an office of Advisor Students Affairs for the purpose is situated at the first floor of the
Administration block. Teachers and the staff are available for guidance of the students.

In order to help the passing out students in securing jobs and solve their practical
problems, an office of Students Guidance, Counseling and Placement Bureau functions at
the first floor of a building facing Masjid-e-Ibrahim. The Bureau also conducts
preparatory classes, every year, for those who wish to appear in the CSS examinations or
to develop proficiency in the English language.
