GCU opens admissions to 11 language courses


First time in its history, the Government College University Lahore has offered admissions to students in eleven foreign and national language courses which include Hindi, French, Russian, Turkish and German.
A public notification in this regard has been issued on the direction of Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Asghar Zaidi who believes in promoting effective engagement of youth in academic as well as co-curricular activities.
Prof. Zaidi said that in European countries students took a gap year and spent a whole year engaging in a mixture of language lessons and cultural courses so as to improve their life skills.
Unfortunately in Pakistan, the VC said the students who got the gap year due to supplementary examinations or other reasons wasted their precious time on social media or in other non-productive activities.–PR
