AKU campus

The city campus of AKU provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Karachi has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. Students have access to the extensive scientific library of the university. The collection of scientific papers helps them in conducting research. AKU regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs. For locals, this is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the cultures of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
