On this regard, the fee had written a letter to all private and non-private sector diploma awarding establishments directing them to right away cease such programmes as HEC has determined to phase-out the two-year diploma BA/BSc programme.

These discarded degrees will not enable students to apply for jobs or further education,” the notification said.
