The application will be considered incomplete if the following documents have not been attached:
- Latest Official Transcript
- Nomination letter from the home university
- Proof of English Proficiency
- Physical Examination Certificate
- Photocopy of Passport
- 4 Passport sized photographs
Note: All documents should be in English.

As exchange students are applying for courses not programmes, they have many choices and need to do careful research before making a selection by studying the LUMS course catalogue and getting advice and approval from advisers at their home university. For the LUMS course catalogue, please visit: http://suraj.lums.edu.pk/~pco/
Students are pre-enrolled for courses based on their application form, hence it is advisable to make the right selection.
