Over 30 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. 

Perhaps the most significant transformation taking place at AKU is the planned establishment of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Once completed, this 1,100-acre campus located north of Karachi will encompass undergraduate liberal arts and graduate programmes in a residential community environment. The establishment of this campus represents a major step towards becoming a comprehensive university. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


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


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


Our Postgraduate Medical Education  offers internships, residency, and fellowship programmes in various disciplines as part of its PGME portfolio.


Our professional and continuing education programmes are designed to provide practical skills, expert knowledge, best practice insights and a robust network of support to empower you to create positive change in your community.


For over 25 years, we have been building local capacity through excellence in research and finding solutions to issues such as under-nutrition, mother and child health and illiteracy.

Our faculty​ are champions of the lifelong learning process. Working across eight countries in the fields of medicine, nursing, allied health, education and the humanities, we are proud of their accomplishments.​
