Iraj Jaffri
Level 3: L3IFDHES

Joining the NCC program has been one of the most pivotal points of my life, as this allowed me to change my career path to that which I originally dreamed of excelling in as well as being economically friendly enough for my parents to actually consider letting me do this. From easy registration to the inclusive module contents and, most importantly, hiring the right people to deliver these contents with maximum effectiveness that is certain to generate compelling results, TMUC has successfully launched a much-needed higher education alternative in Pakistan that will give the present monopolists a good run for their money and ultimately makes TMUC the Top international University in Pakistan . What I like the most about this program is its effectiveness yet, at the same time, not letting the students feel like they are being burdened academically.

More power to TMUC! I wish to see a massive chunk of the youth enrolled in this program that not only academically qualifies them but makes them better versions of themselves in all the other aspects as well.
