From the Vice Chancellor

 

My Dear Students,

Having established as the premier institution of Higher Education in 1980, the University of Azad Jammu& Kashmir (UAJK) has completed another year of its journey towards academic excellence. The University is a multi-campus and multi-discipline institution established to cater for the higher educational needs of the people of Azad Jammu & Kashmir and the adjoining areas of Pakistan.
We are committed to provide quality education to the students across the state of AJK and Pakistan regardless of their ethnic, economic or social background. The UAJK is offering educational and research opportunities in 72 degree programs both at Undergraduate and Graduate level. The scientific laboratories, updated libraries and furnished classrooms along with peaceful and conducive atmosphere help in carrying out intellectual grooming of the students.
The University is conspicuous on the academic horizon by arranging conferences, seminars and workshops. UAJK is quite responsive to the national issues and causes. Hence international conferences, seminars such as “Kashmir in the Emerging Global Perspective (2011)” and “Qafila-e-Yakjehti Kashmir (2016)” were arranged to highlight the plight of human suffering in the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK).
The University of AJK is also involved in developing collaborative linkages with national and international institutions. In this regard, Memoranda of Understanding have been signed with a number of organizations. The MoU for the establishment of Turkish Language and Culture Centre has already been signed while the establishment of Arabic and Chinese languages Chairs are in process.
The construction of King Abdullah Campus at Chattar Klass is underway and with its completion, we will have state of the art infrastructure to provide facilities to the faculty and students.
I am proud of my faculty, staff members and students who helped the University attain the present academic excellence.
