  • I can not understand the stupidity that has led to the ridiculous names like Government College University (GCU) and Lahore College for Women University (LCWU). What was wrong with giving hem degree awarding status without adding University to their names?

    For example, Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute (GIKI) awards defrees up to PhD but does not have university in its name. Renowned institutions in the world like MIT, Caltech, London School of Economics, etc. award all types of degrees but they are not called universities.

    If the previous Q League government wanted to give GC and LCW, a degree awarding status. it could have been done while keeping these old well-renowned names and without changing the names into ridiculous title of "College University".

    At least better sense should prevail now and the names should be changed back to Government College Lahore and Lahore College for Women while allowing these institutions to award their own degrees.



  • @Adonis

    How about

    The University of King's College

    King's University College

    University College Oxford



  • @ mango mam

    I am not familiar with the history of the name of University College, Oxford, but Oxford University has more than 30 constituent colleges and the degree from all of these is called Oxford university's degree.

    Don't know about the King's University College.

    But the point is that these are just a couple of exceptions among thousands of degree awarding institutions in the world. Colleges like GC, FC, LCW, Kinnaird etc., have a long history and well known name. If it was decided that these institutions will be allowed to award their own degrees, then why there was any need to amend their names? There is nothing that bars a college which has been given charter by the Government to issue all sort of degrees.
