The National University of Science & Technology (NUST) does NOT have its own medical college. Instead, they have some seats which are reserved at Army Medical College in Rawalpindi and they have an admissions process for those reserved seats. If you get into the medical program through NUST, you go to Army Medical College but you're not required to serve in the military upon graduation (I'm pretty sure).

So to sum up, NUST does not have its own college.

rehan is correct..nust is affiliated with army medical college..so basically you study at AMC but you get your seat from NUST and your degree is from NUST as well..

I'm currently a third year med student at AMC: an NFC, which is a NUST foreign cadet. If you have any more questions about AMC or NUST, do let me know, I'll be more than happy to answer.

the place is VERY strict...i mean u get fines or extra drills for things like not wearing your beret, not saluting, being in the library during lecture hours, missing wards...etc..etc...etc

But you get used to that eventually, the worst part about the place is the narrow-mindedness of the ppl...man it gets to u sometimes. All in all I don't think its the best place in pak for a foreigner. Not really a very receptive environment. The facilities and teachers are only second best to AKU especially since the college has started expanding. The admin is also getting a lot better...much more supportive of the students and they are finally favoring academia over discipline.

We do have uniform...which of course I do LOVE ;) Girls wear saris, guys wear khaki...but I've heard that the order has been passed to change to camouflage n that'll prolly be implemented in the next two-three years. I think its cool, can't wait to be walking around all commando-like (GI Jane).

Yoseph..NUST with AMC or AMC with NUST...orange juice, orange soda...whats the difference :p

Wasanbaloch...why would u be surprised, I mean u were the one who started the topic.

Meraal- I am a foreign student so I had to give the SAT2s in chem, physics, bio. Are u planning on giving the SAT2s or the local entrance exam? In any case, the best review books for both exams is the princeton review series. I just read those along with the regular high school text book and managed to do pretty well.
