The Programme

The Medical College offers a five-year Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programme. The programme is open to all academically qualified candidates without consideration to gender, religion, race, creed, colour or domicile. Students from anywhere in Pakistan and overseas may apply. There are no quotas, reserved seats or admissions against donations. Merit-based admissions are open to candidates from around the world.​​

Under University’s core principles of quality, relevance, impact and access, the Programme prepares students to lead change in their societies and to thrive in the global economy. Our merit-based, transparent admissions process and needs-sensitive financial assistance programme attempts to ensure that a diversity of high calibre students are able to attend the programmes at AKU.

Admission is based on merit and potential for leadership. Merit is assessed by several criteria including scholastic achievements, performance on an AKU Test and interviews, productive use of time and other experiences indicating potential for leadership. Fulfilment of basic eligibility requirements or a high academic score in any single discipline or any other outstanding achievement alone is not sufficient for selection. ​

For admission cycle 2021, the applications for admission will be accepted from April 5 to July 6.
