The University of Peshawar founded in 1950, is the fulfillment of a dream, which had long remained unrealized. The first seeds of the University may be said to have been sown by Sir Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan, who boldly conceived the idea and founded Islamia College – (The Dar-ul-ulum Islamia) in 1913 at the first out-post of civilization, almost at the mouth of the historic Khyber Pass.


Higher Education Commission (HEC) intends to develop and endure a dynamic and internationally competitive research sector in Pakistan that makes a major contribution to economic prosperity, national well-being and the expansion and dissemination of knowledge.
