Different tertiary institutions:
Granted with the certain credentials to be established as a University by the provincial legislation, Though the Public Universities are autonomous and are governed through a senate they receive grants from the provincial government and legislation for their establishment. In spite of this fact the Universities can exercise independent and autonomous decision making in the matters of academics, curricula, methods and teaching strategies. Apart from the funding received from the government they also receive tuition from students.
These institutions are authorised to be operated and recognised only after strict quality assessment by the designated government authorities and accreditation committees. Though they are not funded by the government the degrees are approved after strict quality adherence. They are mostly funded by private institutions and research grants.
Colleges are affordable and provide skills that are in demand in the job market and industry. They are also licensed to operate and train students on varied skills and many times non registered curricula. It’s an interesting structure that augments the expertise of experienced professionals and educators working in co-operation with local businesses, communities, and industries.
