University and Career Counseling Department
Sadiq Public School has introduced a new system of university guidance and counseling provision with the aim of affording more comprehensive and personalized support for our senior students as they go through the complex process of applying to institutions of higher education whether in Pakistan or abroad.
Counselors will help reinforce our students’ understanding of specialist disciplines such that they are able to make more fully informed higher education choices appropriate to their specific skills and interests.
