Karachi, October 07, 2018 (PPI-OT): To promote higher education opportunities for Pakistani students, representatives of 33 U.S. universities travelled to Karachi this week to host the biggest U.S. College Fair in Pakistan from Oct 7 – 8. The 13th biannual South Asia Tour provided thousands of Pakistani students, parents, counsellors, and local university officials from Sindh with an opportunity to explore a wide array of academic programs and receive first-hand guidance on applying for admission.
“We are fortunate to have representatives from over thirty three American colleges and universities here today to recruit local students. That’s the most that have visited Pakistan in recent years, and it shows that our colleges realize how many excellent students there are in Pakistan.
