Although perhaps not one of the first study abroad destinations which come to mind, Pakistan (Officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan) has a great deal to offer international students, with a rich diversity in its culture, landscapes and people, as well as well-respected universities.
If you'd like to study in Pakistan, read on for information about Pakistani universities, student cities, applications, costs and more.

Higher education in Pakistan expanded significantly following the country's independence from Britain in 1947. Today the system is overseen by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC), which oversees funding, research outputs, and teaching quality. The commission recognizes 174 universities in the country, including both private and public institutions, and some which are military or vocational in focus. You don't need to worry about learning Urdu (the national language), as all teaching at universities in Pakistan is conducted in English.
