In response to the request received from students of Afghanistan to allow them to attend face to face classes after decision of NCOC regarding resumption of academic activities and proactive step taken by Prof.  Dr. Zahoor ul Haq, the Worthy Vice Chancellor of the University by taking up the matter with the Chairman, NCOC, it is moment of great pleasure that the Government has allowed students from Afghanistan to cross the border and resume academic activities. In a letter of Home & Tribal Affairs, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, it has been conveyed that students of Afghanistan are allowed to join their respective campuses. 

The students of the University are required to complete all their travel documents. It is mandatory for students to have negative PCR test results as the Authorities at border shall conduct rapid COVID-19 tests and allow only those students to cross the border who test negative. Furthermore, all the students shall go through mandatory 10 days’ quarantine facility arranged in the Campus as per international travel requirements.

The Vice Chancellor has directed the medical unit of the university to establish quarantine facilities for facilitation of the students. He showed his resolve that awkum will continue to support its students in their academic and professional endeavours. Earlier the VC took a strong exception of the news that some institutions are not offering internships to awkum graduates and discriminating them in availing internships. He directed Registrar to extend legal facilities to such students and send legal notices to the concerned institutions. The vc directed all to help transform awkum to a ‘students centered academic institution’.

On the behalf of the students, the Vice Chancellor and University Administration would like to thank NCOC, Government of Pakistan and Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to hear the voice of students from Afghanistan and taking a step facilitating their Academic activities.
