Higher education coverage in Pakistan is roughly 5%, which is exceedingly low when compared to other countries such as Bangladesh (7%), India (13%), Malaysia (29%), the United Kingdom (59%), the United States (82%), and Finland (94 percent). Pakistan's government is striving in a variety of ways to expand access to higher education. In Pakistan, there is a significant disparity between the number of students who complete higher secondary school and those who enroll in universities. The gap exists primarily owing to a scarcity of public universities that offer inexpensive education. CUI Virtual Campus was established to expand access to high-quality higher education in the country by providing chances to people who were unable to attend colleges due to scheduling constraints, financial constraints, or cultural barriers. vcomsats.edu.pk
