It is a matter of great pride and joy for me that University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir has completed
another year in its journey towards academic excellence. The University is a multi-campus and
multi-discipline institution established to cater for the higher education needs and research in the
area of Azad Jammu & Kashmir and act as examining body for its constituent units and educational institutions affiliated with it.
The University is successful in its mission of delivering quality higher education. Students pursue higher studies in a disciplined and peaceful atmosphere prevailing at all campuses. The University is adequately staffed with highly qualified faculty. The University is taking every possible step to promote curricular and co-curricular activities.
The University is providing educational and research opportunities in 52 degree programs both at under Graduate and post Graduate levels. The well-equipped laboratories, rich libraries and furnished classrooms in peaceful and conducive atmosphere help students elevate themselves in the field of learning, research and development. I am confident that the excellent teaching, learning and research atmosphere will spur the talents of the students enabling them to compete at all levels in a competitive job market.
By utilizing best efforts opportunities are being provided for faculty and students to update their knowledge through interaction of national and international institutions by arranging seminars, workshops and conferences. Recently held linguistics and International Kashmir Conferences provided a platform to the eminent scholars from across the country and abroad to deliberate, share their views and ideas on Kashmir Issue.
The University of Azad Jammu & Kashmir is devoted to students welfare and has established guardian councils in its various departments to assess the problems of the students and help them resolve. The need based scholarship program has been launched to support the needy and talented students so that they may not be deprived of higher education facilities for want of financial resources. Opening of career counseling office is also under way to help the students for internship, higher studies abroad and job opportunities.
Our University has laid emphasis on developing collaborative academic linkages with higher educational institutions. In this regard, we have signed Memoranda of Understanding with a number of organizations.
The construction of King Abdullah Campus at Chattar Klass is progressing well and with its completion, we will have sufficient infrastructure to provide more facilities to the students.
I am proud of my faculty, staff members and students who helped this University attain the present academic excellence.
We are striving for excellence and God willing, we will succeed in our mission.
