3 new departments at KIU

PT Report

Gilgit, November 22: Total number of departments at the Karakuram International University has increased to fifteen, with addition of three new departments, including Behavioral Sciences, Communication Sciences and Environmnetal scienses.

Public circles have lauded the establishment of new departments at the rergion’s only university, but they have also expressed apprehension over availability of funds for making the departments fully functional and effective. It is pertinent to note here that the PPP government’s first victim was the budget allocated for education. The slash in funds has badly affected performances of universities and other centers of higher learning throughout the country.

The previous vice – chancellor of KIU had also been complaining about acute lack of funds for effective governance of the university.

In another decision the current VC has also decreased the tuition fees paid by students in different degree classes.
