It was summer 1992, when the plan for establishing Universal College Islamabad was finalized. The best brains and minds of the country were involved in, with the ultimate objective to provide quality education of the international standards at an affordable cost in Pakistan.

I proudly announce that UCI has recently entered into an agreement with Monroe College, New York, USA to be its partner institute in Pakistan. UCI will be offering Monroe College study programs in Pakistan: the first session of BBA & MBA is being offered from September 2022.

You will be pleased to know that the University of London has selected me as one of the leading women alumni in Pakistan for their celebration of 150 Years of women comitted to quality higher education. I am highly indebted to the University of London for this honor. I was also invited by the University of London on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor to the Leading Women Celebration event in January 2019 at St Jame’s Palace where we had the honour of meeting HRH The Royal Princess, Chancellor of the University of London. 

Universal College Islamabad is also offering ACCA and Higher National Diploma (RQF) stream from Pearson, UK. These qualifications are also very versatile, time tested, well-positioned and compatible with our education system. These programmes are highly valued worldwide and our youth is greatly taking benefits of these studies.
