In a positive development for students, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has announced a new scholarship programme for post-graduate students.

The scholarship is for non-Saudi post-graduates, which brings a chance to study at Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah.

"The prestigious King Abdulaziz University is offering scholarships for postgraduate studies," the HEC said in an Instagram post.

It said that the opportunity is only for the non-Saudi candidates willing to study abroad.

"Students residing in Pakistan can apply for these scholarships," the commission said.

For details, the willing students can visit the university's website at this address:

The HEC said that any related queries regarding the subject programme shall directly be asked from the respective varsity.

In an earlier news, the education commission banned University of Lakki Marwat from granting new admissions or affiliations to the students over violations of its guidelines.

It issued an alert through its official account on microblogging site, X, announcing the ban on the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa varsity.

It said that the ban has been imposed after observing some serious irregularities which affected the quality of education the students are receiving at the university.
