HEC, Hungary Sign MoU for Award of 200 Scholarships to Pakistani StudentsHEC, Hungary Sign MoU for Award of 200 Scholarships to Pakistani Students<p style="text-align:justify;">Islamabad, February 21, 2017: The Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan and the Government of Hungary have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) under Higher Education and Scientific Exchange Programme under which Hungary will provide 200 scholarships to Pakistani students to study in Hungarian universities.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Engr. Baligh-ur-Rehman, Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training, was chief guest of the ceremony. Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed, Chairman HEC and Mr. Szabo Istvan, Ambassador of Hungary to Pakistan signed the MoU. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Dr. Arshad Ali, Executive Director HEC, Mr. Waseem S. Hashmi Syed, Adviser HRD HEC, Dr. Mazhar Saeed, Director General Planning and Development, Mrs. Emilia Szabone Nagy, wife of Hungarian Ambassador, and other representatives of HEC, Embassy of Hungary, and European Union were also present. Mr. Nandor Mullner, a Hungarian student studying in International Islamic University Islamabad also attended the MoU signing ceremony.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Out of 200 scholarships, 125 scholarships will be awarded in Bachelors programmes in addition to 50 scholarships in Masters and 25 scholarships in PhD programmes. Earlier at the onset of a three-year programme in 2015, Hungary announced 240 scholarships and the first batch of 80 students was sent to Hungary while Pakistan announced 30 scholarships for Hungarian students to study in Pakistani higher education institutions. However, following the MoU, the number has been increased from 80 to 200 per year.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Speaking on the occasion, Engr. Baligh-ur-Rehman termed the increase in scholarships from 80 to 200 an incredible development. This measure will help bringing the two nations closer, he asserted. He held out assurance that the Government of Pakistan will extend all-out support to Hungarian students to come and study in Pakistani institutions. He said the Government of Pakistan is keen to further improve relations with Hungary. He appreciated the role of HEC in facilitating students and availing themselves of opportunities to pursue their education in countries like Hungary. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Expressing his grief over the recent spate of terrorism incidents, the Minister said Pakistan is committed to overcoming the menace of terrorism and energy crisis. He observed that the situation is far better than the past owing to Zarb-e-Azb Operation and other Government initiatives. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In his welcome note, Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed described the background of Higher Education and Scientific Exchange Programme between HEC and Hungary. He informed more than 3000 students had earlier applied for the scholarships awarded by Hungary. "The mobility of students between the two countries will create more opportunities for the two nations to come closer," he said. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">He said HEC is planning to expand research collaboration with Hungarian universities. He informed that Hungarian institutions have offered their support in setting up a Sport university in Pakistan. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Mr. Szabo Istavan said the increase in number of scholarships indicates that the Government of Hungary gives great importance to bilateral relations with Pakistan. "Investment in education is indeed investment in future," he said, adding that the two countries have a long history of diplomatic relations spanning over half a century. He hoped that the academic linkages will build strong bonds between Pakistan and Hungary.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">​Sharing his experience in Pakistani university, Mr. Nandor Mullner said Pakistani students, faculty and the university's administration welcomed him on his arrival. "I feel at home while studying in Pakistan," he said. He expressed a wish that more Hungarian students should come to Pakistan and benefit from the opportunity. </p>22-02-2017 06:25:54<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/HEC-Hungary-MoU.aspx
HEC Launches Pakistan Qualification Register (PQR)HEC Launches Pakistan Qualification Register (PQR)<p style="text-align:justify;">Islamabad, February 17, 2017: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has achieved another milestone by launching Pakistan Qualification Register (PQR) through e-portal system so that stakeholders of HEC can view online those programmes of Pakistani Universities/Degree Awarding Institutions that have been approved by HEC. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">PQR is an online database which contains information regarding accredited higher qualifications and institutions recognized by HEC of all public and private sector universities including their sub campuses and affiliated as well as constituent colleges. PQR is aimed to provide clearly defined levels of knowledge, skills and competencies to be acquired by every graduate.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">HEC started developing a Qualification Framework for higher education sector in 2009 and took necessary steps to develop tools for implementing the framework covering all HEC chartered public and private higher education institutions in the country. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">PQF is a level-based and outcomes focused mechanism. It sets out the levels on which a qualification can be recognized in Pakistan. It encompasses a comprehensive list of all quality assured qualifications in Pakistan. Each accredited qualification has been assigned a level. It consists of Entry Level-1 to Level-8, describing the difficulty of qualifications at each level.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">PQF has been structured to help learners to make informed decisions about the qualification required, and will help employers to assess what qualification a candidate has achieved. It will help in establishing the national standards of qualifications as well as provide a basis for comparison of qualifications at national as well as international levels. Further, it will help in international recognition of academic qualifications, facilitate trans-national mobility of graduates and learners, in addition to be used as an instrument for qualitative reforms in education system.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The first announcement for nomination of Focal Persons for PQR and populating the data by universities was made by HEC in October 2016. The response of universities on PQR has been encouraging and till date 144 HEC recognized universities and degree awarding institutions, out of total 183 institutions, have nominated their Focal Persons. It is worth mentioning that till date 15098 programmes have been listed in the PQR portal . </p><p style="text-align:justify;">​The universities have been informed that PQR is going to be linked to HEC initiatives such as attestation system of degrees awarded by the universities, appointment of HEC approved supervisors, award of national research grants for universities, thematic research grants for social sciences, indigenous/overseas scholarships, etc.</p>22-02-2017 06:23:37<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/HEC-Launches-PQR.aspx

NBEAC 4th Deans and Directors Conference 2017http://hecportal/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/banner.png, http://hec.gov.pk/english/PublishingImages/EventsImages/banner.pngNBEAC 4th Deans and Directors Conference 2017<p style="text-align:justify;">​​​​NBEAC's Deans and Directors Conference annually brings together more than 100 deans and directors of business schools for strategic level discussions.  This year's conference will focus on the balance required between global paradigms versus the need to customize business education in Pakistan according to the local needs. Both businesses and business schools in Pakistan – small or large, urban or rural – face competition for products and services created by the spread of information technology and globalization. However, our context, culture and heritage demands a certain degree of indigenization in management practices and in business education. The conference program is designed to increase the effectiveness of business education in Pakistan, through debate on the mentioned issues and through related refinements in the accreditation process.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Objectives:</strong><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To evaluate the extent to which business education in Pakistan is preparing graduates to contribute to the local and global economic activities.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To identify unique themes and specializations for business education in Pakistan, keeping local needs and global trends in perspective.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To discuss the balance between indigenous vs. international curriculum content for effective business education in the country.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To share the experiences of education leaders from Pakistan and other countries, of creating a balance between indigenization and globalization of business education in their countries.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">* To identify ways in which accreditation can be used as a framework for addressing the challenges associated with convergence and divergence.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong><br></strong></p>01-02-2017 10:51:03http://hec.gov.pk/english/news/events/Pages/NBEAC-4th-Conference.aspx15{5571557f-beb9-4225-b81e-28db7c8d584d}http://hec.gov.pk
