The World Bank’s Tertiary Education Support Program (TESP), in collaboration with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and provincial governments, aspires to take steps towards improving quality standards of college education in Pakistan.  

This was stated by Executive Director Higher Education Commission Prof. Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed while addressing participants of a meeting in Islamabad.

He said college education was an important pillar of higher education in Pakistan, and after the 18th amendment, HEC was working closely with the provincial higher education departments to bring college education at par with the international standards.

He also emphasised the dire need to join hands with the provincial education departments and concerned affiliated universities to develop a joint strategy in this regard.
