All the universities are required to teach a similar curriculum to students as the courses are being assigned from The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan per degree. The universities follow a tight set of requirements directed from the HEC and are rated on standards defined by HEC. On the basis of these ratings and the market stature and reputation of universities, students prefer one university over other before taking admission into any university. Fortunately, in Peshawar the City University Of Science And Information Technology and the Institute Of Management Sciences are the two most preferred institutions as the number of students enrolling every session is increasing continually since their foundation in the recent years. Both institutions have outgrown themselves and achieved marvels in recent years.
