“This is a golden chance for the scholars to get knowledge from the most well-known universities of the world in United Kingdom and experience a dynamic, vibrant as well as multiracial society. I advise our scholars to explore as well as to make the best use of their time in United Kingdom, and experience the culture, heritage, landscape and also the individuals of United Kingdom. The innovative experiences plus the knowledge will help them make a difference to the future of Pakistan”.
