â€œ30,000 candidates applied directly by purchasing university prospectus, 15,000 candidates applied onlineâ€
Sargodha: The extraordinary rush of applications for Fall 2017 admissions at University of Sargodha testifies the trust of parents and students in its growing academic profile.
The Admission Office received around 45,000 applications against 6,700 seats in 31 disciplines. Among them, 30,000 candidates applied directly by purchasing university prospectus while 15,000 candidates applied online.
This is the first time ever that the university administration introduced the online admission process, which was user friendly both in terms of completion of required forms and depositing of admission dues.
In the Fall 2016 annual admissions, there were 22,000 applicants, which means that the number of applicants this year has more than doubled. This trend is attributed to the significant growth this year in the academic profile of the university, which has in turn positively shaped the percetions of young applicants and their parents to prefer UOS over other public sector universities in the Punjab province.
â€œWe will continue to modernize the admission process, in consonance with other reforms being taken in enhancing the level of teaching and research, linking academics with industry and collaborating our departments and faculties with reputed national and international institutions,â€ said Dr Muhammad Afzal, the Chair of Admissions Committee.
