Travel Grants - PAK UK Education Gateway

PAK-UK Education Gateway is a partnership between the British Council and the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. The project was designed based on shared interest and mutual benefit for both the UK and Pakistan. It opens doors for strong partnerships in policy learning, through which stakeholders from both the UK and Pakistan can co-develop solutions to challenges faced by Pakistan's education sector, and contribute to the social and knowledge economies of both countries.
