The Student Success Division at Habib University in Karachi serves Habib students by helping them to acquire required tools, advice, training and support essential for your academic and career success, and not merely for success but for success with EXCELLENCE. We want to assure you that your academic journey over the next four years will be life changing, and you will grow into a well-rounded individual ready to play the role of a thoughtful leader in society.

Making Your Transition to Habib Smooth

As mentioned above, the key role of the student success division is to help you optimize your time at university, and the journey of success starts from the moment you accept admission and decide to become part of the HU community.

We greatly care for our students and completely understand that taking a leap from a structured high school environment to a more open and diverse college environment may be daunting for some of you.

Besides excitement, some of you may also be feeling a little nervous. Some of you may be worried about your future and transition to college due to COVID-19 situation. Let us tell you though that you do not need to worry about your transition at all. We are here to facilitate your transition through a series of exciting and informative activities planned through April, May, June and July. We are fully supporting our current students during this pandemic and same level of support is being extended to you as you are now the part of our community and your care is our responsibility.
