Query Statement: We both sisters have completed our studies together. We completed B.Sc.(Honors) in Geography from Karachi university, M.C.S in Computer Science from UBIT-Karachi University, M.S in Software Engineering from Bahria University, Karachi. We both are 30 years old.

Now we do not want to proceed our studies to Ph.D. also we are not interested in teaching, networking, and programming. And also we have no work or job experience in any field.

We realized that actually we are interested in fashion designing and interior designing, also we are good at drawing, sketching, and generating new ideas and can work hard up to extreme to achieve our goals without sleeping, eating, and resting.

One of us want to take admission in 4 year Bachelor in Interior designing and other in Fashion designing (BID and BFD) from Indus University (due to less fee), and want to do job in these fields.

As we will take loan to complete BFD and BID, so please inform in detail that from whom we should take loan for fee? And which type of loan we should take? Also inform us about the interest free loan?

Our question is that can we get job immediately after completing BFD and BID from Indus University and approximately how much pay can we receive in this field and can we return loan easily?

Also inform us that after completing 4 year Bachelor, can we get job in this field (Interior and Fashion designing) at the age of ~35 years.

Further we want to inform that we want to do fashion and interior designing job in Dubai and later start our own business in these fields and want to settle in foreign.

Please inform us if we study BFD and BID from Indus University then can we get job immediately in Dubai in fashion and interior designing and also inform us that can we return the loan in Pakistan while living in Dubai

Please help us.

Well both of you need to search for job as the degrees you earned are valuable and are sufficient for job. But at first it need more struggle, no need of loans as no one can predict in future what will be their financial status. Do search job and designing means your own business and i believe it does not need any degree you are master of your work and are doing it as your own job. You both can do this after when get stabled…..

I would recommend that rather go for another field, it will more good if you can join any software house/MNC/telecom sector IT field.  There are many other fields in IT (not merely programming etc). By this way you neither need to do your studies altogether nor have to worry to find job in fashion designing.

Zubair Bajwa

Your education is complete now is the time to get into practical job market. As you start earning, you can save and pursue your passion of designing on the side. If you are good there are more chances of getting a good job in Dubai or Pakistan in IT than designing. 

For loan please ask some bank for details.

Good Luck!

Dr Manzoor Yetoo

You can take study loan from Pakistani banks and try to work for some time rather than going for more educational program, just concentrate on executive learning in fashion designing rather than taking loans and enter into debt trap. I will suggest you to work in your related field and continue other courses also.

Hammad Siddiqui

I think instead of going back to school on a full-time basis, you may consider starting your own interior designing business. 

Engr. Ali Soomro

Thanks you for your query.I have read and understood all the related problem.I will suggest you to get in the specific field so that you can get job done in the same capacity.Although you both are interested in Fashion Designing and Interior Designing, then remember that these are both different field. For getting a suitable job, you must have experience and knowledge. For this you have to study 4 years and then to compete in job market.Well it’s you own choice, if you want to get admission in Indus University for BID and BFD, then Indus also provides you monthly fees for the convenience of students. Moreover NBP provides loan on easy installments for the educations. For this you can contact National Bank of Pakistan.After getting the degree done, there will be more competition in this field as you both will be new, I hope you will get some suitable job after clearing you degree. The approx. salary package is around 25-30 K but it vary according to company. In UAE you can get job of 5000 UAE Dir to 8000. Best Regards, 

Farhan Khan

I appreciate the way you are thinking & analyzing your future plans. 

There is no age limit to get education & knowledge but there are many other factors which contribute in career development like family background, social commitments like marriage & kids. Your query to get loan I am sorry I’ll not be able to answer that as it depend on your personal dealing with the Banks in your city or your dealing with university. 

To get job in foreign is not that easy neither it is so simple to get success assurance especially for new people. As there is lot of competition. I suggest you to batter visit your selected university & have discussion on these matters with student’s counselors.

Best of Luck,

Syed Iqbal Haider

There is something missing in the lives of you, both, sisters! God helps those who help themselves!!!

How come you could not realize your potential and desire to become fashion and interior designers, over the last 15 years?

The fields, you graduated in, are very useful and the need of the day. However, there is no need to cry over spilled milk, knowledge is always useful and makes you popular, if not wealthy!!

My advice would be that you should call Mr. Junaid Jamshaid – who has made his name in religion and the Fashion World, take appointment with him to meet and discuss your life career concerns with him. He seems very understanding and responsible person!

I am sure he will help you resolve your confusion.

Regarding your loan, you can also sign an agreement with Junaid Jamshaid or a similar large outlet that after the graduation you will work with their company for a certain number of years, if they are willing to finance your education. 

Also check with Ministry of Education, if they can provide you the names and addresses of organizations that are promoting education in Fashion and interior Design!!

Regarding your chances of getting jobs, it totally depends upon how you perform in your interview and if you are able to impress your potential employers, whether within Pakistan or abroad!!

I hope these comments take you some where!!

All the best

Dr. Fauzia Khurshid

You can visit the web site of respective university if those universities have provision of loan or scholarships, or you can explore the scholarships offered by HEC through their web site.

National Bank of Pakistan offers 100% Interest Free Loan to students at all educational levels under the title “Qarz-e-Hasna”. Once one completes the studies there are couple of years for grace; then borrower has to return the loan in easy installments.


Secondly probably you are talking about Indus Valley (University). Its good and reputed institution in Pakistan. If you get the degree (s) as desired, you will get the job Insha Allah, especially in Gulf (UAE).
Yes, you can repay Qarz-e-Hasna even from Dubai. It’s never too late. Choosing and pursuing your own area of interest is always better. Please go ahead. 

Wish you great luck.
