“The great aim of education is not knowledge, but action.”

As a University, we see our role in imparting a higher state of knowledge and equipping our students with the mindset and tools of discovery that they need to build meaningful careers and take decisions with confidence.

Our prime focus has always been to increase the employability of our students and to raise the University’s prominence in the world. Within our campuses we are dedicated to free and open debate, unimpeded inquiry and discovery, and to act as a community whose academic vitality and capacity to serve others flow from, and are promoted by, our core values- excellence, innovation and creativity, openness and responsibility.

Our plans for the future include expanding our University Community, bringing people from the widest array of backgrounds and perspectives together to celebrate and learn from our differences, as excellence cannot be achieved without diversity. We will further incorporate technology in our courses to ensure the highest quality instruction to improve the learning experience of our students.

We approach work with the ethos of creating value for students in all activities undertaken in campus, be that curricular or extra-curricular. Our desire is to foster entrepreneurial spirit in our students by guiding them to tackle big issues, seize opportunities, and adapt quickly to changing circumstances.

We realize simple coverage of the curriculum alone is not enough, but rather students’ need a strong educational foundation and the necessary skillset to ensure that they stand out in today’s world. We offer continuous professional development to our faculty to ensure that students get most-up-to-date knowledge and information in classes, with an emphasis on project based learning to develop student profiles. That is the direction we are working on.

“I take this opportunity of welcoming you to the seat of higher learning i.e. University of South Asia to begin your self-development process".

The University has produced a number of students who are playing very important role in the development of world economies. Our claim to be one of the biggest private sector universities in Pakistan is based on our presence with the purposebuilt and state-of-the-art campuses at Tufail Road (Lahore Cantt) and Raiwand Road. These locations are at the heart of a lively, historic, beautiful city of Lahore. Our campuses with easy access to residential vicinities are the finest and most well equipped academic hubs existing in the city. What makes this University so special? It comes down to people.

First, the academics ranging from Engineering to Biotechnology, Fashion and Design to Health Sciences, Business to Architecture, Media Studies and Law to Literature. I know of no other university in private sector in Pakistan of comparable size with as many faculties and vast range of courses as we offer. The best academicians with extensive international exposure and qualification are part of our faculty. Then there are the administrators, technicians and many others who support the whole enterprise with dedicated commitment. And, of course, there are our students – an extraordinary diverse body of people united by exceptional ability, motivation and potential.
