Karakoram International University Skardu Campus
The KIU Skardu Campus was established in 2011 to create opportunity for the students of Baltistan to get education at their door steps which was more than a blessing for them. In the past, the students of Baltistan had to spend a lot of money to get education and bear other expenses to travel to, and live in Gilgit or down country for the purpose of getting education, but now they are lucky enough to access education from within their own region. The students of the Skardu Campus are enthusiastic to seek knowledge. The Campus is progressing, as the admission ratio is increasing every year, as the ratio of registration for 2014 is more than the current year which is indeed a very positive sign. To run and expand the existing departments funds are being generated and granted as PC-1 has been approved. At present four departments offer undergraduate and graduate degree programmes. The detailed annual report of the year 2013 is given below.
