What they say


Dakhlay helped me find my dream program in Engineering. If you have the opportunity, take the leap! There are no words to describe how much it's worth it.

Usama Khan
Multan, Pakistan

I have used Dakhlay to find my programme and I know how much it can help students in making the right decision. Even now that I am already registered, I still use Dakhlay to find diplomas and short courses. Also, I am constantly recommending it to friends that are going through the same struggle that I went through when I had to choose a degree.

Rubina Aslam
Lahore, Pakistan

Dakhlay is the main factor that I am here studying in my favourite college. It was the best decision of my life. Now I am living my dream, to study on scholarship. Their application process saved my time and money altogether.

Muhammad Ahmad
DG Khan, Pakistan

I was looking for universities for my Master’s program and I finally found my university through Dakhlay. Their application process has been super smooth and I recommend it to every student to visit this site or download the app to get access to a world of opportunities.

Fasil Khan
Lahore, Pakistan

6. Dakhlay response time to student’s application is real quick and I have witnessed no delays in my application process because of which I have gotten into my dream University.
