The purpose of the FDP is to encourage and reward existing faculty for developing their teaching skills in key areas of their expertise. It caters to enhance the education level and encourage the young non-PhD faculty members so that they can contribute in nation building with their technical and professional enhanced knowledge. The programme focuses on strengthening of university academic programmes through foreign qualified faculty and enhancing effectiveness of teaching and learning at Pakistan. It will also bring opportunities to develop research projects and simultaneously build capacity in the education system of both the partner countries.
The program provides an opportunity of learning abroad for research and development as non-PhD faculty members of selected universities to pursue their PhD degree abroad. The Programme offers PhD scholarships in specific disciplines for each participating university.
