I cherish the memories of the great teachers here and the well-disciplined students that bespoke of the efficient institution. I owe a great deal to my alma mater and pray that it continues with the spirit that it began with. Aameen!

I really enjoyed learning in such a stimulating environment, where teachers work as a team and students are eager to learn. GIFT University is an institute that has cooperative professors, a state-of-the-art infrastructure, laboratories pertaining to latest technologies and clean vast campus with a large cafeteria that serves very hygienic food.

I would like to thank my teachers, Ms. Hajra Imran, Ms. Nazish Hassan, Sir Tariq, Sir Waleed and all other staff members that have been so supportive during my program.
My time at GIFT University, Gujranwala, will remain with me for the rest of my life. Academically, it provides an environment in which you study alongside leaders in your field, and are given the opportunity to develop skills that will help you pursue your career goals, whatever they are. But GIFT offers more than just an academic education. It is a place where you can learn from those around you can grow as an individual. I am confident that GIFT ensures providing the students with a rewarding university experience. Being in societies has not only helped me learn from various people, it has also increased my sense of respect and worth towards certain people. In fact, it also taught me some real life lessons. Many thanks to our Dean, Sir Asir Ajmal, and our Society Coordinator, Sir Riaz, for always guiding me to do better.
My experience so far is one of pride that I have been able to be a part of GIFT. The dedication and hard work that has been put into my 4 long years so far has allowed me to succeed in many ways, as well as increasing my self-development skills. GIFT University is a great place to study and I would suggest it to anyone hoping looking for quality education. I am stunned with the amount of support I had over the years I was there.
