After 146 Years of its wonderful history, the Government College, Lahore was raised to the status of a University in 2002. It was renamed as the GC University Lahore. The academic life here has been re-shaped in accordance with its new challenges and we hope to fulfill the expectations that go with a University. The GCU is committed to act as a promoter of quality education for all.
This Institution is one of the oldest seats of learning in the Muslim world. As a seat of higher learning GC University blends grand old traditions and modern educational standards to meet the ideals set by persons like Dr. Leitner, philosopher the poet, Dr. Muhammad Iqbal and the Noble Laureate, Dr. Abdus Salam.
We have redesigned our syllabi and courses to prepare the young minds for productive careers. The University offers B.A/B.Sc. (4-year Hon.), M.A, M.Sc. (in some selected disciplines), M.B.A., M.Phil, and PhD programmes in all major disciplines. We also take steps to sensitize our students about the meaning of the University Motto: "Courage to Know." We try to make the students inquisitive, thoughtful and independent in pursuit of knowledge. Special measures are taken through discussions, co-curricular activities, writing of term papers and dissertations to make the learners confident in their understanding of innovative themes and topics. Every student is thus brought into the mainstream of the grand academic culture of the GC University. During their stay, the students are bound to benefit from the academic, intellectual and cultural environment of this celebrated educational institution.
