HEC Student/Parent Alert about Accreditation’s Matters.
It has been noticed with concern that degree programmes of some Universities are being initiated/continued without obtaining accreditation from the concerned Professional Councils. Non-Recognition of such graduates by the Councils has a direct negative impact on the future of these students.
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. Parents/ Students are advised to confirm whether the degree programme of their interest is accredited by the concerned Council or not before taking admission in any programme.
