The expo, being organised by the Middle East Academic Centre, a local Academic Service provider, will offer on the spot admission in diverse faculties.

This was announced at a Press conference on Monday by Dr Rafique A. Ghuncha, chief executive and director-general, Omayr Mehmud, project director, and Umme Salma Mujtaba, academic consultant, of the organising company.

The 22 universities are, University of Management & Technology (UMT) Lahore; University of Lahore, Lahore; University of Faislabad, Faisalabad; Sarhad University of Science & IT, Peshawar and Abbottabad; Qurtaba University, D.I. Khan and Peshawar; Beaconhouse Informatics Rawalpindi; Imperial Institute of Technology, Islamabad; Hamdard University, Faisalabad campus; Superior University, Lahore; Thames Business School, Rawalpindi; Rawal Cadet College, Rawalpindi; Brokefields Schools System, Islamabad; NWFP Agriculture Univesity, Peshawar, Kohat University of Science & Technology, Kohat; Gandhara Institute of Technology, Peshawar; Women's Medical College, Abbottabad, Frontier Medical College, Abbottabad; Isra University, Hyderabad; Baqai Medical University, Karachi; Peshawar College of Engineering, Peshawar; University of Central Punjab, Lahore; APCOMS (Army Public College of Management & Sciences), Rawalpindi.

The admission situation at university level back home for NRP's has remained an area of concern where self finance seats are available to students i.e. sizeable number of students are running for limited number of seats.

The expo is anticipated to attract thousands of Pakistanis residing in the UAE; now looking for University admissions as their children finish high school examinations this summer.

Special attention has been given to make available wide range of disciplines ranging from medicine, engineering, applied sciences, agriculture, management sciences and other emerging disciplines under one roof at the expo with authorities offering competitive fee structures, exclusive boarding facilities for male and female students, 100 per cent medical insurance and ensuring smooth living of all the registered students.

The Pakistan Consulate and other associations such as Pakistan Professional Forum and Pakistan Business Council have extended their support; and have welcomed the initiative of an education expo from Pakistan, the organisers said. A similar event will be organised in Jeddah soon.
