Services for Students

 

As a University of Peshawar student, your success is vital to everything we do. We offer a whole range of services that help students achieve their careers goals.

Career Counseling and Guidance

It is a comprehensive, developmental program designed to assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices. A career counseling and guidance program develops an individual’s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration, and career planning.

Career guidance and counseling programs help individuals acquire the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to identify options, explore alternatives and succeed in society.
