UoE refuses teachers to do PhD at PU
LAHORE – The University of Education (UoE) has refused their faculty members to do PhD from Punjab University.
A number of PhD scholars who intended to do their PhD from the Punjab University and have since cleared the interview and test for getting admission in PhD at Punjab University needed necessary NOC from their parent University, but the administration of UoE refused them to issue the NOC. As a result, a number of lecturers would not be able to do their PhD while the facility of PhD studies in these subjects was snot available at UoE.
The UoE Teachers Alliance in a statement urged the Chancellor/Governor Punjab to intervene to redress their grievance.
They alleged that there was no justification in refusing the NOC, no there were any rules to prevent the teachers to do their higher studies in any university.
When contacted, a spokesman of the Vice Chancellor UoE Dr Mrs Mirza said the UoE had set its own criteria to allow its teachers to do PhD that required 2 or 3 years experience and satisfactory performance as a teacher in UoE. The nation
