British Council holds pre-departure meeting of students

LAHORE, Aug 9: The annual pre-departure event for students leaving to study in the United Kingdom (UK) was held on Wednesday at the British Council. The UK Education Department of the British Council and the UK alumni gave students insight on student life in the UK.

According to a press release issued by British Council, the purpose of the pre-departure was to give students useful information on lifestyle in the UK and things that they should take with them. The event attracted more than 70 students who are leaving this fall for college in the UK. Students got the opportunity to converse with other students and exchange contact information so that they can stay in touch once they get to UK. Falcon Education and Consultancy Services sponsored the event.

Each student received a pre-departure booklet and a map. Tariq Malik, UK Education manager at the British Council, also told students all they needed to know.

Two British alumni, Ali Tariq and advocate Momina Randhawa Wahla were also invited to share their experiences with students. Ali Tariq did his MSc in Human Rights from London School of Economics in 2006. Momina Randhawa did her LLM in International State Law from London School of Economics in 2004. They shared useful information on studying and working in the UK, and also regaled the participants with personal anecdotes from their time spent in London. Daily times
