Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) will be officially commencing its National Outreach Programme (NOP) Summer Coaching Session on July 16, 2018. Approximately 640 shortlisted applicants from across the country will assemble in the University’s academic block, where they will be formally inducted through a streamlined process and briefed about the activities planned to provide them with a well-rounded campus experience. 

The 16-day coaching session, which will end on August 1, 2018 will rigorously train students to take the SAT 1 and 2 tests. These sessions significantly facilitate lodging and dining facilities for over 80% of the students. The students will get to know first-hand what LUMS has to offer through faculty interactions, tutorials, presentation skills, and critical thinking sessions. These sessions also feature a host of extra-curricular activities such as sports day, music and drama night. The purpose of these sessions is to not only equip these brilliant students for the upcoming test but also to instil a sense of purpose, competitiveness and comradery among them.

Based on these lab sessions, interviews and assessment tests, a large proportion of those attending will be invited to appear in the LUMS admission test next year. These students are invited from all over Pakistan, including Muzaffarabad, Mirpur, Loralai, Zhob, Turbat, Rakhni, Pishin, Gilgit, Swabi, Charsadda, Mardan, Mathelo, Karachi, Dera Ghazi Khan, Bahawalpur, Hasilpur and Bhakkar.

The NOP was launched in 2001, to extend the benefits of world-class education to talented students all over Pakistan. This prestigious scholarship programme focuses on identifying bright students with exceptional Matriculation and FA/FSc results and inducting them into the LUMS Undergraduate Programmes. To date, 798 students from across the nation have benefited from this programme.
The University's vision behind this programme is to brighten up these students’ career prospects and put them on track for securing a better future for themselves and their families.
