Message from the LUMS Vice Chancellor
"The start of an undergraduate study programme at a university is a big challenge for many students. Students need to be fully equipped with logical and analytical thinking capabilities in order to make the jump from school to university life. Cambridge qualified student usually perform well at LUMS, especially in the areas of reading, writing and presenting.
The Cambridge broad-based course structure prepares students for upcoming challenges. A wide variety of subjects gives students the freedom to choose interests of their choice and also compliments the model of LUMS undergraduate studies."
