Curriculum of the both universities at various educational levels was at par with other national universities. At UOP priority was given to research by providing adequate research facilities such as grant for research activities and organization of national/international research conferences, whereas GU did not provide such facilities to the faculty. The study recommends that physical facilities such as furnished classrooms, IT rooms, labs, multimedia, internet and stationary shop may be provided through developmental funds to the students and faculty of Gomal University. Further university management may do efforts to enhance the funding from HEC, philanthropists and national/international donors. Further it is recommended that as library is a major source of knowledge and information for students and faculty. Therefore the departmental libraries of Gomal University may be provided with adequate subject books/reference books, ejournals/ books and PCs with internet access for students and faculty by allocating adequate funds. Research is a major function of the university. Therefore the study recommends that priority may be given for provision of research facilities such as grant for research activities and organization of national/international research conferences in Gomal University by allocating adequate funds for research from HEC and other donor agencies.
