The degrees have been deferred for a year
The HEC has decided to defer two-year associate and four-year graduate degree programmes this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The decision was made at a meeting of vice-chancellors of all private and public universities across the country on Saturday.
The HEC has initially agreed to postpone the degrees for a year. It will issue a notification after discussing the matter with all stakeholders.
Last year, the commission abolished two-year bachelor’ degree programmes at universities. It meant that students would no longer be able to pursue two-year BCom, BA or BSc degrees.
