Subject: Admission of Foreign & Dual Nationality Holder Pakistani Students under Self Finance Scheme (SFS) for the Session 2021-2022
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) administers admission of foreign nationals as well as Pakistan origin dual nationality holders in various public sector Universities/Colleges of Pakistan in the disciplines of Medicine (MBBS) and Dentistry (BDS) under the self finance Scheme (SFS), following the admission rules and regulations of Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC).
2. In this backdrop, this is to inform that as the “Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) Medical and Dental Undergraduate Education (Admission, Curriculum and Conduct) Regulations 2021” the dual nationality holders fall under the definition of “Pakistani Student” (relevant clause enclosed).
3. In this regard, it has been observed that the students, particularly the dual nationality holders of Pakistani origin have shown keen interest in the medical discipline offered under the scheme since its start and have filled most of the seats, however, keeping in view the above mentioned admission regulations, HEC is not in a position to administer the admission of the dual nationality holders of Pakistan under the aforementioned scheme.
4. In view of the above, the competent authority has decided to handover the administration of foreign seats reserved under the scheme for MBBS /BDS programs to the concerned Universities/Colleges for admission of foreigners as per PMC regulations for the session 2021-22 and onwards.
