Pakistan is a fascinating country with beautiful natural scenery, a rich culture and a complex history. The country stretches from the shores of the Indian ocean in the south to the towering heights of the Himalayas in the north, and encompasses the Indus River valley, a cradle of human civilisation and home to some of the world’s most ancient cultures such as Ghandara Civilization, Harappa Civilisation and Mohenjo-Daro etc.
The country today is an ethnic and linguistic patchwork (more than 60 languages are spoken in Pakistan), and the people mirror the incredible diversity of the landscapes and geography.
Many Pakistani universities actively encourage foreign students to enrol, and large numbers choose to study abroad in Pakistan. Students come from as far afield as Saudi Arabia, Africa and China, as well as some from America and Europe. Higher education is delivered in English at all public universities in Pakistan, which, combined with the relatively low cost of living, makes studying abroad here an attractive option. These are the best universities in Pakistan based on the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, QS University Ranking, Shanghai Ranking and all other international rankings in 2020.
