Tuesday, 28 April, 2009

Four visitors from the Beaconhouse School System (BSS) in Pakistan, counsellors Ms Naila Abidi from the Gulshan Campus in Karachi, Ms Bushra Jamal from the Margalla Campus in Islamabad and Mr. Mahroof Zaidi from the Faisalabad Campus, led by Ms Afsa Babar, Manager of Career Guidance & College Placement, Lahore, visited UOWD on 26-27 April on a familiarisation visit sponsored by the University.

During their brief visit, the visitors met UOWD staff from Marketing & Admissions, Student Services, the Centre for Language & Culture, Library Services and Residential Services. They also met with academic staff from the three faculties, and Pakistani students currently enrolled at UOWD.

Earlier this year, UOWD offered a generous scholarships package for students graduating from the Beaconhouse School System. This visit was intended to familiarise the counsellors with UOWD program offerings and services so that they may counsel BSS students on the educational and extra-curricular opportunities available at UOWD.
