List of universities in Pakistan

Higher education in Pakistan is the systematic process of students continuing their education beyond secondary school, learned societies, and two-year colleges. The governance of higher education is maintained under the Higher Education Commission (HEC) which oversees the financial funding, research outputs, and teaching quality in the country. In Pakistan, the higher education system includes the public, private, military, and vocational universities, all accredited by the HEC. Since independence, new universities have expanded throughout the country with support provided by the University Grants Commission (UGC), which had been an autonomous institution of recognizing universities until 2002 when it was preceded by the HEC. Pakistan produces about 445,000 university graduates and 10,000 computer science graduates annually. A number of institutions of higher learning are active in the country, but the HEC recognizes 188 institutions. This article provides a comprehensive list of higher education institutions active in Pakistan.
