The desiring ones may take admission in the Matric programme in semester spring, 2020, the University announced on Tuesday.

The admission is to begin from January 15 and will continue till February 20, it was announced here on Tuesday.

Vice Chancellor Professor Dr. Zia-Ul-Qayyum hoped that the people of these two areas would take benefit of this special offer, to get them educated.

Proving free education to students of Balochistan and tribal region will supplement the government’s efforts upgrading educational facilities in the country and to bring maximum number of the people in the educational net.

The University is already providing free education to neglected sections of the society that include disabled persons, prisoners, drop-out girls and transgender group.

Accordingly, the university takes care of economically less-privileged areas of the country. It may be mentioned here that the AIOU had also waived off tuition fee for the internally displaced persons (IDPs) of the tribal areas.

Besides this, it is also providing scholarships to deserving students to ensure that nobody should be left without education owing to financial constraints.

The AIOU is only educational institution in the country that has made available free education to marginalized sections of the society or less-developed areas of the country at various levels

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
