  • 1. ALLAMA IQBAL OPEN UNIVERSITY

    The Allama Iqbal Open University (with its main campus in Islamabad) was established in 1974 under an Act of parliament. It was the second open university of the world and the first of its kind in Asia and Africa when it was established. Now more than 60 such universities are providing distance education and it is among the 4 top mega universities of the world. The aim of establishing AIOU was to provide affordable and accessible education through distance learning at the door-steps to those people who could not continue their education through formal system of education. The University (AIOU) operates on semester system and admits students in Autumn and Spring semesters. Under-graduate admissions are offered in both the semester where as post-graduates are offered once a year. The enrolled students are given course books audio video cassettes specially prepared by the university on self instructional principles. However, at the post-graduate admissions level reprints of foreign books allied with study guides help students to polish their skills.

    At present, the AIOU is offering programs from matric to PhD level in diverse disciplines included in the four faculties. The University has established study centres across the country, where distance education students are provided necessary guidance by their respective tutors. Moreover, the university has established full time study centres, wherein the students of MBA (IT), MBA (Banking and finance, BS (CS), B.E (Engineering) and MS. are being provided instruction, guidance and counseling through face-to-face education. AIOU is offering 4-year under graduate degrees. In same courses teaching is provided by radio, TV programmes.

    Apart from curricular and extra-curricular activities during the academic year, the AIOU and its regional centres actively participate in the co-curricular activities by arranging educational and literary seminars, workshops and conferences, attended not only by the students and faculties of the university but also by renowned dignitaries and scholars. For the science students and research scholars, a science complex has been built where they use the latest equipment of international standard. To meet the present day challenges internet facility is also available in the students hostel and the Central Library, where computers have been provided to enable students to access latest information available through open source databases.

    2. FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

    First established in 1981 with five departments, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities has, over the years, flourished to become, by far, the largest Faculty of the University. It, today, consists of fourteen departments offering masters programs in major areas of social sciences and humanities like, Business Administration, Economics, Mass Communication, Sociology, Urdu, Library & Information Sciences, History, Pakistan Studies, and Teaching of English as a foreign Language (TEFL).
