18 colleges declared 'English medium'

Karachi, Jan 25, 2008: Eighteen colleges of the city would be made "Model English Medium Colleges," declared caretaker Minister for Education Shujaat Ali Beg at an inaugural ceremony held at PECHS College on Thursday.

These colleges, he said, will be made to adopt English as the medium of instruction. Of the 18 colleges, 10 are for men.

A crash course for principals and senior professors of the government colleges, aimed at brushing up their English language skills, will commence from January 28. All the subjects at the college, except Urdu and Islamiyat, will be taught in English.

In this connection, a notification has already been issued by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), according to which an English proficiency test would be made mandatory for all students and those failing to qualify would not be awarded degrees by colleges.

Speaking on the occasion, Beg said that English is spoken all over the world and, in order to compete, Pakistan would have to introduce the extensive usage of the language in all its colleges. He said that, in the initial phase of its effort in this regard, the government has decided to declare 18 colleges as English medium and, with the passage of time, this practice would be adopted in other colleges, too.

The caretaker minister of education said that this practice would be followed in government schools of the province.

He also announced the setting of some rules in the colleges, such as making uniforms compulsory. Academic calendars and teaching diaries should be prepared by the teachers, he felt.

He also said that courses and syllabi should be completed before the examination, and stressed said that the attendance record of the students and staff should be properly maintained.

He instructed that all graffiti, flags and banners be immediately removed from college buildings. The News
