His Excellency Alshafie Ahmed Mohamed, the Ambassador of the republic of Sudan called on the Vice Chancellor UoP Prof. Dr. Muhammad Rasul Jan to discuss matters pertaining to  measures for improving the enrollment percentage of Sudanese students at various disciplines of Varisty. The two also held detailed discussion on the facilities relating to the existing students of Sudan in the University of Peshawar.

Although it is a Universal truth that education is the key to economic and social development of a society, the Muslim Countries have made little inroads in this field, said the Ambassador on the occasion. He added most of the Muslim countries have earmarked very meager budget for education. To quote my own country only 1% of the total budget is kept for education sector which is far below the required level, while in Pakistan it hovers around only 3% which is also one of the lowest in the World, said Alshafie Ahmed Mohamed.

The Ambassador thanked the Vice Chancellor for extending full cooperation and facilities to the students of his country and praised the contribution of the University of Peshawar in providing quality education to the Sudanese.

University of Peshawar has this unique nature of providing playgroup to PhD education on one integrated campus with a residential campus and all the facilities within, said Vice Chancellor UoP Prof. Dr. Muhammad Rasul Jan. He added UoP has adopted this policy of encouraging relations with Muslim countries and their higher education institutions. It is because the students can adjust well to the local environment, he said.

Dean Faculty of Life and Environmental Studies Prof. Dr. Amir Nawaz, Dean of Arts and Humanities Prof. Dr. Mujib Rahman were also present in the meeting.
