British Council enhances partnership with LCWU

LAHORE, June 9(Daily Times): The British Council, in partnership with the Lahore College for Women University, organised a seminar on 'UK qualifications, Scholarships and Visa policies' on Friday.

Lahore British Council Director Mariya Afzal spoke at the seminar. She said education was the key to development in all sectors of UK and Pakistan. She also added UK qualifications as the prerequisite to insuring professional growth.

The seminar provided information on UK qualifications, scholarships and visa policies and provided guidance and support on how to access these resources in the UK, in Pakistan and online. The seminar highlighted the UK education and training opportunities that have been created due to job vacancies in the United Kingdom and the international market. The seminar was followed by a question and answer session.

The seminar was of interest to students, young professionals, academics and faculty members looking to earn internationally recognised qualifications and gain access to world-class training. Students were especially interested in UK scholarships that the British Council manages: the Chevening Scholarships Scheme and the Charles Wallace Trust Visiting Fellowship.

Lahore College for Women University Liaison Officer Sahar Malik said that such information seminars are an exciting way of raising awareness of international qualifications for young students and professionals. She also appreciated the efforts of the British Council in developing public awareness through such seminars.

There were a series of lucky draws in which students won prizes like MP3 players and goodie-bags. Seminar participants expressed their views on the event and appreciated the efforts of the British Council in improving educational standards in Pakistan.
