Universities being autonomous bodies as degree awarding institutions and given the present scenario of Pakistan, the level of students’ engagement and motivation towards educational institutions have been doubtful. Numerous instances have been reported in Pakistani media , print or otherwise, condemning educational institutions of not producing well motivated and equipped students which in turn add up to a big pool of jobless human resource of Pakistan. Following completion of higher secondary education level, students necessitate motivational status ahead of it to facilitate academic success (McKenzie & Schweitzer, 2001). Students necessarily have to evolve into learners competent of discriminating in “how to learn”, “how to ask questions” and “how to transmit ideas” that aid in getting proper advantage of a university education. Unfortunately, the willingness of students in achieving academic success and actions to learn is completely overshadowed by whatever they hope to earn (Teese, 2002). It’s supposed to act as a go-between by their goals or reasons behind going to a university, and, motivation is the main centerfold to these goals. Students go into university adhering upon what they already know, most of them thrash about to adapt their knowledge and learning practices to the teaching and learning culture of universities and this transition challenge and process is destined to them. The learning and teaching strategies at a university are different from their prior experiences. To coup up, students may become aware of the issues and become prepared and motivated to struggle.
