Saint Patrick's College or St. Patrick's College, is located in Karachi, Pakistan. It was established in 1952 by Fr. Stephen Raymond as its first Principal.[1] Until 1964 it was an intermediate college only.

Saint Patrick's College is a co-educational institution offering courses leading to the Intermediate certificate of education [2] and baccalaureate degrees from the University of Karachi. In 1972 it was nationalized by the Government of Pakistan.[3] In 2005 it was returned to the Catholic Board of Education.[4][5] The denationalization was opposed by the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association and Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal who claimed it would result in doors being closed to students from poor- and middle-class families.[6]

It currently offers courses in Arts, Commerce and Science at the Intermediate level and Arts and Commerce at the baccalaureate level. St.patrick's college have launched their website.
