Pakistan consistently ranks low in terms of competitiveness and human development due to a substandard system of higher education which ignores critical thinking, analytical and leadership skills. As a result, graduates from Pakistani universities are not equipped to address Pakistan’s rapidly evolving and complex developmental, social and economic challenges. Habib University, in response to these challenges, offers a world-class intellectual experience that is accessible to the brightest students of Pakistan irrespective of their backgrounds, enabling students to become thoughtful leaders that are equipped to engaged with complex problems. This mission is sustained through widespread community support.

Almost 90% students at Habib University receive some form of scholarship or financial aid making Habib University the most generous university in Pakistan. The scholarship and financial aid framework at Habib University particularly focuses on creating access for highly talented students from local examination boards. These students have traditionally been disenfranchised from leading private universities in Pakistan which depend on student tuition revenue to sustain themselves and are, therefore, biased towards students from international examination boards since these students are more likely to pay full tuition.

Habib University is able to provide unparalleled access for students through a diverse and remarkable community of supporters. Habib University’s mission has inspired and galvanized community leaders and the wider community from the United Kingdom, United States of America and Pakistan to take part in supporting this mission.

By joining Habib University’s community of supporters, the Pakistani diaspora in the UK has an opportunity to make a world-class institution education accessible to the most talented students in Pakistan irrespective of their backgrounds. Furthermore, through this support they can further deepen their connection to Pakistan’s development.
