Higher education is the need of time in Pakistan. Growing number of degree awarding institutes is a step in the right direction. Private sector universities are playing pivotal role in this regard. We analyzed the situation through literature review and found that the trend of distance learning in higher education is increasing worldwide. We also analyzed the situation in Pakistan and found that Pakistan is not following the world trend with the same pace. With that knowledge in mind we surveyed undergraduate and graduate students of two private sector universities in Karachi. The result shows that distance learning is favored among the surveyed students and they are more willing to continue their higher education through distance learning programs.
