“It is recognised that the choice of undergraduate programme has a lasting influence on the life and lifestyle of students well into adult life. At LUMS it is our goal to provide a challenging, rewarding and enriching environment both in and outside classrooms. We strive to prepare our students not only for the job market on graduation, but to lead fulfilled, healthy lives as citizens and as individuals.
The academic excellence of our programmes (which are among the best in the region, and compare well internationally) is well known. Less well known is our stress on a well rounded student, knowledgeable in more than just their chosen profession. The aim of our broad based curriculum is to give our student an enriched all-round intellectual life because we recognise that universities must prepare students not only for the hours they spend at their jobs, but also for the many more hours of their leisure time and personal lives.
Outside of the classrooms, LUMS also works hard and thoughtfully to groom our students and provide enriching experiences.
The Sports and Wellness department maintains sports facilities and organises events with wide participation. The goal of this department is to encourage long lasting habits of physical fitness. To introduce student to the pleasures of regular exercise that will not only work to maximise their academic performance but will provide a basis for a long and healthy life for decades after they graduate.
We have an active extracurricular life on campus with student-run societies for debates, dramatics, music, trekking, Model United Nations and many others. In each of these, students not only have enjoyable social/cultural experiences, but also have the opportunity to create, lead and to develop their ‘soft skills’. We try in the miniature society of LUMS to have all the facets of achievement and creativity that we would wish to see in our lives, in our country and our region.
Most importantly, we try at LUMS to instil core values; the values of pursuit of excellence, integrity, tolerance and social responsibility that are the bedrock of any successful family, institution and society. We aim to create a model that will serve our students and their communities not only for the time they are at LUMS but for decades in the future. We have a long way to go and much to learn and we are looking for leaders who wish to accept all these challenges.”
