Pakistan Gateway


Over 27 years, AKU has built a reputation in Pakistan for excellence in teaching and learning.

With programmes in educational development, medicine, nursing and midwifery, we aim to inspire young researchers and professionals to become forces of positive change in their communities.


An undergraduate education at AKU prepares you to make meaningful contributions and improve the quality of life of those around you.

Our programmes in medicine and nursing and midwifery teach you to apply classroom theory and academic research to solve the challenges Pakistan is facing today.


A graduate education at AKU opens doors to possibilities. Through participatory learning, real-world problem-solving and research our graduate students explore issues and develop innovative solutions to some of the most pressing concerns in Pakistan today.

If you are passionate about making a difference then AKU graduate programmes in nursing, medicine or educational development can help you turn your ideas into reality.
