Collaborations of LPU with the top universities globally are what have attracted students, and guardians to come to this university in the hope of perfect exposure, knowledge, and an introduction to the international happenings. These international tie-ups have widened the horizons and increased the opportunities for the students to rise and shine. Students have fulfilled their dreams of traveling to other countries, studying in the best university in hand, and gaining the experience required to strive in the outside world.
This time, like always, LPU has yet again tied a bond with another international university tightening its bonds of foreign relationships. LPU collaborates with Aston University, UK which is one of the top 500 universities in the world. It is a public research university located in Birmingham, England with the best placement record in the whole UK. It was given the title of “University of the Year” in 2020 by The Guardian. Also, The Times Higher Education (THE) has recognized the contribution of Aston University in guiding the careers of students towards the future they deserve and named it “Outstanding Entrepreneurial University” in 2020.

We have seen a number of students in LPU grabbing the opportunities and studying in another university out of the country and establishing their name worldwide. Many of the students have successfully undertaken the study exchange program offered by LPU and acquired an international degree along with a bright future ahead. May these collaborations prove to be more fruitful for us ensuring a dazzling career and a scintillating life ahead and help us to achieve all the dreams that we students possess.
