Students throng Dawn's Education Expo
Karachi: Students, some with knapsacks dangling over
one shoulder as they filled them with the various brochures, some with
plastic file cases in hand and others with plastic bags printed with
insignias of one university or the other, thronged the Dawn's Education
Expo at the Expo Centre on Saturday.
All were glad to have representation of so many leading international
and local universities (there were over 100) at one place as they
visited the stalls. Still Hall 1, which had more international
university stalls, seemed slightly lower on the visitor's agenda than
Hall 2 and 3 that had several local universities, most with the added
advantage of affiliation with the international universities.
"Well, they are selling education here basically," said Abdul Wahid, a
second year student of Computer Science from Bahria University. "What
they are really saying here is that you need to join our university, the
procedure for which is made to look quite easy here until you go ahead
with it and run into all kinds of hassles such as high fee and other
things once you reach their country," the young man shared.
But all students didn't share the view since there were so many
options at hand. Arqam Khan, an A Level student from City School, seemed
interested in what the representative of Near East University, Mr Abdul
Hadi, had to say about the advantages of studying at the university,
located in Cyprus. "There are mosques and no issues with finding halal
food there so it is just like living in Pakistan but with zero crime.
Plus the visa process has no complications," he said while briefing the
students about the various educational programmes offered by the
"I am interested in pursuing my higher education in Psychology and
Law," Arqam said, "and am just weighing my options right now," she
said. "Universities in Muslim countries can be a good choice for female
students," she thought.
Most of the international university stalls giving out details about
their courses, scholarships, visa policies, etc, had specially selected
Urdu-speaking, Pakistani representatives to be able to communicate well
with the visitors and make them feel welcome while putting them at ease.
Meanwhile, several technical-minded youngsters also looked around.
"I'm a student of Mechanical Engineering," said Mohammad Ammad Shahid of
Indus University. "I want to do an MBA in supply chain," he provided.
Another group of engineering students from NJV College said that they
were very interested in pursuing higher studies in the UK. "The
American system doesn't suit us," said Mohammad Owais.
His friend, Sultan Ahmed, said that he was thinking of completely
changing his line as he wanted to study Criminology from aboard.
Two sisters, Quratulain Ali, doing BS from Sindh Madressatul Islam
University, and Ruba Ali, currently working to get an Associate
Engineering diploma from Polytechnic, said that they were looking for
financially-suitable options. "So the local universities seem more
within our reach. And many of them are affiliated with foreign
universities, too, meaning that their degrees for certain courses can be
issued from abroad," observed Quratulain.
The Education Expo, entry for which is free, will continue from 11am to 7pm on Sunday as well. Dawn
