Selecting a University is not an easy task. Applying to several graduate schools takes a lot of effort and money. As a result, you must consider a few key variables that will help you limit your options to select a few universities.
The first thing you should consider before choosing a university is accreditation. If a university is recognised, it lends credibility to the fact that it can operate as a firm or organisation in that state. The Higher Education Commission (HEC) must certify universities in Pakistan. The University of Faisalabad has been designated as one of the best universities in the HEC-W category. The departments accredited by TUF are PMDC, PCP, PNC, PEC and PBC by their respective accrediting councils.
Another key consideration is the location. It all depends on what’s most important to you. Use the metric of miles or travel distance to determine the greatest fit for you if you need an institution close to your home. Many regions and rural areas in Faisalabad lack good graduate institutes. The University of Faisalabad recognizes this predicament and has established two campuses within the city to assist students from rural areas who wish to pursue higher education. One is in Faisal Town Canal Road, Faisalabad, Punjab, and the other is on Sargodha Rd, University Town, and Faisalabad. We also have student housing available at extremely low rates. Our goal is to provide students with opportunities by enabling their access to a high-quality education.
Another crucial indicator of a university’s legitimacy is its alumni network. Consider the size of a university alumni organisation if you want to stay connected to your fellow alumni no matter where life takes you. The University of Faisalabad has a large and active alumni base. Thousands of alumni have gone on to serve in countries worldwide. TUF alumni can assist you in finding employment and provide advice on various parts of your time at university.
You must select universities that have a route that is convenient for you. If you own a car or use public transportation, you should look into the cost and availability of campus parking. It may be a tremendous ordeal at certain campuses, producing many students’ frustration. There is a large automobile parking lot at the University of Faisalabad where students can park their cars and bikes. There are also CCTV cameras installed, as well as proper monitoring to record check-in and check-out.
Aside from academics, another essential factor for students to consider: is what kind of student life alternatives they will have. Some universities do not provide opportunities for students, and as a result, they spend their time in dorm rooms. But, if you want an active student life at any university, you must pay close attention to on-campus life. There are numerous programmes on campus at the University of Faisalabad to encourage healthy campus living. In addition, the university has a sports arena, an indoor gym, and many societies.
You can choose universities based on their rankings on world-renowned platforms and looking at numerous data. These are some of the more well-known rankings for determining the legitimacy of a university.

Safety and campus security
Any university’s safety and security are critical components. Therefore, when visiting a university for admission, you should look into the university’s security system. By strengthening the physical, mental, and emotional security and wellness of students, teachers, staff, and visitors, as well as modelling, monitoring, and creating opportunities for involvement, the University of Faisalabad, strives to foster a culture of learning and community involvement.
As a result, the University of Faisalabad erected security cameras that monitor all activity 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, the university has added CCTV cameras with night vision capabilities, and the surrounding wall’s height has been enhanced to protect students. Furthermore, electronic systems and metal detectors have been deployed to ensure security.
This is useful if a university has multiple clubs for students’ passions and interests. For example, the University of Faisalabad creates societies to enable students to discover their abilities and pursue their passions while studying.

The goal of most students attending university is to find a rewarding job that contributes to society. Look at if a university provides extensive career services to assist you in launching your job or preparing for graduate school. Aid with identifying a “best match major,” co-op and internship placement services, job search preparation, and job placement assistance are just a few of the career services TUF provides. The institution establishes a distinct department called the Placement Bureau to handle these obligations.
