The Board of advanced studies and research (BASR) was established in August 2021 to advise the authorities on the promotion of advanced studies, publications, and research culture in the University. The directorate will consider and report to the authorities on the institution of research degrees in the University.

The Board’s primary and leading priority is to play a pivotal role in materializing the vision and mission of the University and accomplishing excellence in academia and research. The board is committed to offering a conducive and competitive environment for the scholars of the graduate programs to ensure a prominent position for the University of Baltistan Skardu in the regional and global scenario. All these efforts are established in relation to quality assurance and standards set by Higher Education Commissions (HEC) through active monitoring of research programs.
