Pakistan : National Outreach Programme at LUMS

Sponsored Links

LUMS aims to provide equal academic opportunities to people of all social walks across Pakistan. In order to fully harness the potential of the human resources of the country, LUMS has been trying to provide a broader access to its programmes across Pakistan.

A new initiative - the National Outreach Programme was launched in 2001, with the objective of providing educational opportunities to bright and talented students from smaller cities, villages and inner city areas of large urban centres, who are unable to meet the programme's regular fee requirement. Deserving students with exceptional Matric and FA/FSc results (80% & above) are encouraged to apply through the National Outreach Programme for a four year Undergraduate Programme.

How to Apply

The applicants need to submit their National Outreach Programme (NOP) application forms after receiving their matriculation results. The applicants short-listed on the basis of the eligibility criteria appear in the Preliminary Evaluation Test. After being selected on the basis of this test the students are coached and registered for the entrance test, fully funded by LUMS. Finally, the students who apply to LUMS and qualify on merit, are offered admission on full scholarship. There is no separate quota for National Outreach Programme (NOP) candidates. All students, whether they apply directly or through National Outreach Programme (NOP), are evaluated on the same criteria. As regards assessment of financial need, a review committee has been established to ensure transparency in the process of awarding scholarships to all those who qualify for the admission through the National Outreach Programme (NOP).

Eligibility Criteria
