Prof. Dr. Pirzada Qasim Raza Siddiqui CHANCELLOR

Welcome to this truly unique experience in higher education within Pakistan. The Nazeer Hussain University (NHU) is about to embark upon its learning and research mission, under the guidance of an internationally recognised team of eminent professionals. Professors from several world-renowned universities in the UK have tailor-made the courses for the Faculties of Architecture and the Built Environment, Business and Management Studies, Engineering Practices and Sciences, and Pharmacy. All of these courses at NHU keep in mind the challenges of the 21st century that will be faced by highly creative, skilled and dedicated practitioners. The uniqueness of NHU stems therefore from the fact that its courses will be taught under careful input by the founding academic team from the United Kingdom. This elaborate process will provide degrees that will be awarded at high international standards to those talented students who cannot afford to study in places like London. NHU does not want to churn out degree holders for the sake of it, or for profit. Its aim instead is to develop independently critical and original thinkers who can form a sustainable basis for a healthy and progressive society in Pakistan and abroad.
