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.

Majoring in Economics and Politics, to be honest, I was victim of my societal nature. With brilliant minds all around, even in LUMS I always wished to take a path least traversed by. I would do feasibility studies for start-ups, internships at government...

BSc (Honours) Economics

I have 3 siblings, a brother and two sisters. My father worked in a private company as an accountant. At times, my dad worked 2-3 jobs to provide basic necessities for the family. I grew up in a small 2 bed room rental house in Lahore. During my FSc, father saw the LUMS National Outreach Programme (NOP) ad in Jang newspaper in his office. 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...

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...

BA-LL.B

Haseeb Ahsan Javed is a National Outreach Program (NOP) scholar, who recently graduated from LUMS, completing his BA-LL.B (Honors).

"Law was the last choice on my priority list when I applied to LUMS. I was least interested in pursuing this degree.  However, despite my personal inclinations, I decided to study law (a decision which I certainly do not regret) because the National Outreach Program was the only hope for me to continue my education and obtain a degree from a renowned institution."

BSc (Honours) Economics and Politics

Being the youngest in the family and with the elder two sibings already getting expensive education, I knew it would be hard for my parents to afford my higher education at a good university. They were already under heavy debt because of my brothers' higher studies in England. After being a topper in my school and breaking a 40 year record of highest marks ever, I had to study hard in college as well in order to pursue my higher education. I was in college when I heard about LUMS through the NOP team, who visited to give a brief about the scholarship programme. When I visited LUMS...
