Bahira University is in news nowadays and is accused of not providing good education to MS/MPhil students. It was revealed that the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has recommended closure of its 16-degree programs, as the university was offering these courses without fulfilling set criteria. However, Bahria University Islamabad has rejected these reports and said that some media channels are just trying to downgrade the university by circulating fake news regarding the closure of its MS/MPhil programs.
No Bahria University programme suspended
The higher official from the university said that the news was unauthentic, unconfirmed, false and incorrect. As per the procedure of the HEC, the observations are shared with the vice-chancellor of the university only.
While revealing about the fake news on its social media page, the statement stated as:
“The university established in 2000 by Pakistan Navy holds a high image and prides itself on the services it has delivered in the higher education sector in Pakistan. The university’s high-quality graduates are employed in top organizations and the university attracts quality students into its very popular programs,” the statement continued. “All programs of Bahria University are recognized and accredited by respective regulatory bodies including HEC, PEC, PBC, NBEAC, NCEAC, and PMDC. The QS World University Rankings Asia 2019 in recognition of Bahria University’s quality programs has ranked it among top 400 universities of Asia in which only 23 Pakistani universities could qualify. The international collaborations and MoUs with almost 40 renowned international universities worldwide give credence to its programs and graduates,”
The Media was requested not to publish and broadcast unconfirmed news without verification and authentication from related institutions as it not only affects their name but also creates unrest among the students studying there.
