HIT Educational Trust’s flagship project, HIT Education City, is a 101-acre campus on the outskirts of Taxila that is planned to host educational and research institutions.
The concept of a city dedicated to education has no precedent. It is the first, and the only one of its kind in Pakistan. It will be home to some of the finest institutions of higher learning offering an unrivalled choice of study disciplines. Moreover, by forging partnerships with elite institutions, HIT Educational Trust aims to make Education City an international leader in progressive education and cutting-edge research.
It is with no doubt a city in the true sense of the word — a fully functioning community, committed to imparting and creating knowledge, from early childhood education to postgraduate studies and applied research.
HIT Educational Trust’s far-reaching vision for Education City is in keeping with the pace and scope of the changes taking place all over Pakistan. From its enlightened moderation to its democratic reforms and emerging place on the world stage, Pakistan is in the midst of an exciting transformation that will ensure the country’s continued prosperity and an even brighter future.
