The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has warned students to confirm accreditation of professional degrees before taking admission.
HEC in its statement said that it has been noticed with concern that degree programmes of some universities are being initiated/continued without obtaining accreditation from the concerned Professional Councils.
HEC said that the Non-Recognition of such graduates by the Councils creates a direct negative impact on the future of these students.
HEC added that, in the larger public interest, it is important that commencement of new professional programmes be only undertaken after complete observance of all the requirements prescribed by the Councils. Students and Parents are advised to confirm whether the degree programme of their interest is accredited by the concerned Council before getting admission.
