Chairman's Message

Welcome to the Punjab Group of Colleges, a highly developed education network known across the country for academic excellence. Our students are members of an illustrious institution, which is proud of a heritage and history developed by its cultural, demographic, and economic diversity. Our students also benefit from the unique resources that have been tailor-made for PGC, thereby providing them with the right tools to grow into responsible citizens of a globalized society.

One of the main things you should know about PGC is that we encourage our students’ to dream big. Our objective is to nurture individual potential. We believe in cultivating intelligence as well as talent. Rather than being fixed and finite, intelligence and talent should expand and grow, given the right inspiration. PGC, therefore, aims to keep students’ dreams and aspirations alive.

PGC's academic and social setting is supportive and congenial, and has evolved to ensure a smooth transition from school to college. A broad variety of academic, sports and social activities are available to enable students embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, as well as to prepare them to play leadership roles in the complex and challenging world of adulthood they are entering. Close monitoring and a structured approach for the student's safety and security is one of the hallmarks of PGC. The faculty is as dedicated to the ethical and intellectual wellbeing of their wards as they are to academic excellence in their respective fields. Focusing on mentoring rather than simple instruction, the faculty are more than just teachers to students by the time they graduate.

We, at PGC, are doing all we can to make sure that when students eventually graduate, they will do so as confident, caring young men and women, who are creative, collaborative, and committed to their learning. Our values of respect, discipline, honesty, and tolerance are behind everything we do as an institution. Let your quest for knowledge be limitless; we will do our best to make your educational experience rich and memorable.

The world is your oyster, look for the pearl!

May Allah bless and guide you.
