This qualitative research investigated learning styles at higher educational level in the outlook of experiential learning and learning ability of students from the perspective of university teachers in Karachi Pakistan. Literature reported unique individuals were merged in common classrooms of modern system at higher education level. These adult students from diverse socio economic background felt difficulty to comply with style of teaching being commonly practiced in their higher education. Six interviews were conducted from the teachers of public sector universities in Karachi. The results of the study revealed that in higher education students were engaged in diverse range of approaches related to experimentation, reflective observation and concrete experiences; however, abstract conceptualization was missing approach in the outlook of Experiential Learning Model (ELM). This research suggested the use of higher-order thinking activities such as model critiquing, making analogies and writing papers in order to connect abstract conceptualization with other three modes of ELM.
