Link established between IIUI, Newport University

ISLAMABAD, May 26(Daily Times): The International Islamic University Islamabad's (IIUI) Higher Education Link has formally been established with the University of Wales, Newport, UK.

This was announced at a launch ceremony of the link held at the IIUI Central Library.

Speaking on the occasion, IIUI President Dr Anwar Hussain Siddiqui appreciated the Higher Education Commission (HEC) for encouraging Pakistani universities and providing opportunities of the joint higher education link programme. He hoped the link between IIUI and the Newport University of Wales would contribute to the improvement of language teaching at the higher level.

IIUI Academics Director Gulzar Ahmad gave a detailed briefing on the university's efforts for the establishment of links with other universities, especially with institutions of higher studies in the UK. The launch ceremony is followed by a 6-day workshop on 'Materials Development in English Language Training' that will be conducted by Dr Cann.
