Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has assured the students of BSc (Veterinary Sciences) of the Arid Agriculture University, Rawalpindi (AAUR) to resolve the issue of their degrees’ recognition from Pakistan Veterinary Medical Council (PVMC).
A delegation of the students came to HEC Secretariat on Tuesday and held a meeting with Dr. Riaz Hussain Qureshi, Adviser (Human Resource Development) HEC, Dr. Khwaja Azam Ali, Managing Director (Quality Assurance Agency), Mr. Fida Hussain, Director General (Quality Assurance) and Mr. Anees Sadozai, Director General (Services).
The students vehemently voiced their concern for recognition of their BSc degrees from PVMC. They told HEC officials that now they are in the ninth year of their study but are still unclear about their academic future. Even degrees of those students who have graduated have no recognition.
Dr. Qureshi assured the students that HEC was fully cognizant of their problem and it will be resolved on priority basis. “We shall hold a meeting in which representatives of PVMC and your University will be invited to discuss the reservations of the Council so that deficiency, if any, may be removed and your degrees are duly recognised,” he said.
He said that this will also pave the way for veterinary students of other four universities to get their degrees recognised. These include Islamia University, Bahawalpur, Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Lasbela University of Agriculture, Water and Marine Sciences, Uthal and University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Muzaffarabad.
