BA-LLB

Aqeel started his BSc Honors degree at LUMS in 2010. He values LUMS for making him more open towards exploring new opportunities as well as proactive towards availing them.

He shares his experience at LUMS in the following words: “By taking courses from various streams, LUMS changed the way I thought. To begin with, it made me realize that every picture has two or more sides to it. This realization, in turn, made me understand that my side of the picture does not have to be necessarily...

BS Chemistry

I started pursuing LUMS after another NOP scholar from our community, Karrar Hussain Jaffar, told me about it while I was still a matric student.

I was very worried about getting admission in LUMS due to financial constraints but then I got admission in the NOP programme due to my strong academic background. That is the point when my dream to create my own future started to become a reality.

The best part about LUMS is that it makes you feel like any other student. Rich or poor, NOP or self-financed, we are all equal. The Institute provides equal opportunities to every...

BSc (Honors) Politics & Economics

I am very fortunate to have been born in a family that had inclination towards education. Therefore, a friend of mine in Islamia College made me attend the National Outreach Program orientation session. This first encounter was the first push to stimulate me to LUMS.

Back then, I was not even aware that there is an institution called LUMS. My father had heard about LUMS and his understanding was that it’s for the children from elite class of the society. My dad’s salary for 3 months was...

I, coming from a humble background, five sisters, residing in area behind one of the gates of the walled city of Lahore, graduating from LUMS, was no less than a wonder. The journey began when I read on the website of LUMS that there is a program named “National Outreach Program” which caters to the underprivileged students. I told my parents about this opportunity and they encouraged me to apply. Moreover, I cleared the entrance exam and got opportunity to attend Summer Coaching Session. During coaching session, I was amazed by the classroom...

BSc (Honours) Accounting and Finance

Growing up in a one income household with four siblings, where my father was a government officer at Pakistan Steel Mills and my mother a house wife, aspiring to attend a prestigious university like LUMS was certainly a dream.

During my four years at LUMS, I was involved in various extracurricular activities. I was the Vice President for Share, Director of Finance for M64 Residential College and a certified member of LUMS Emergency Medical Service (EMS). Through various societies' trips and class projects,  I also got...
