Karachi University Likely to Abolish 2-Year Degree Programs

16-year Master’s program is being converted into a 16-year Bachelor’s program, the University of Karachi announced here on Monday. This recommendation was made by a 5-member committee, headed by Professor Jamil Kazmi, that was formed by KU’s Academic Council. This committee also included Professors Anila Akbar, Nasiruddin Khan, Zaheer Qasmi and Naeem Khalid. KU also consulted Supreme Court’s Lawyer Shoaib Ashraf, the head of KU’s legal team. According to the KU’s Legal team, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) will stop recognizing the two-year degrees even if KU continues to issue them.
