Abstract
A Comparative Study of Self-finance and Regular Scheme of M.Sc Economics in International Islamic University Islamabad was conducted. The major objectives of the study were :(a) To compare the regular and self finance scheme of M.Sc Economics; (b) To find out the differences in the results of both schemes; (c) To know the interests of students about both schemes; (d) To give some suggestions and proposals.

Survey study method was used for collection of data. Forty female students of M.Sc Economics and Finance and their parents, sixty female students of M.Sc Economics Regular and their parents were selected as sample of the study. Four types of questionnaires were developed for the collection of data for the study. The data were collected through personal visits of the researcher to the sample students and parents. The collected data were tabulated and analyzed in the light of the objectives of the study. The major findings of study were: courses of both schemes were different, classes of both schemes were held separately, fee of M.Sc Economics and Finance was very high than the fee of M.Sc Economics Regular. Most students of M.Sc Economics and Finance and their parents were facing financial problems due to fee. Most students of M.Sc Economics and Finance and majority students of M.Sc Economics Regular could not continue their higher education due to self finance. Interest of most of the students of M.Sc Economics and Finance for selecting self-finance scheme was due to social demand and interest of majority of students of M.Sc Economics Regular for selecting regular scheme was due to fewer fees. Majority of both students were not satisfied with library's stock and allied facilities.

Keeping in view the findings and conclusions, following recommendations were made related to drawn conclusions for the improvement of both schemes. Fee of students of M.Sc Economics and Finance may be affordable; library of International Islamic University may be well equipped with latest material. Additional revenues earned by self finance scheme should be used for the constructions of necessary infrastructure and revival of research.
