SBASSE for Everyone


The Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering LUMS’s objective is to share knowledge without boundaries. In the spirit of ‘city-wide education’, we are piloting the project ‘SBASSE-for-everyone' which advertises specialized courses as being available for enrollment to citizens who are not members of LUMS.        

In the first pilot phase of this project, our invitation is now open to enroll in selected courses in the Fall 2023. The semester begins in the first week of September 2023.        

As a Visiting Student, you will relish unparalleled access to a broad spectrum of courses, allowing you to meticulously shape your educational journey in alignment with your zeal and ambitions. We are now inviting applications from learners from across the spectrum. You can be a student, professional, amateur, or a retired academic who wishes to learn afresh, while engaging in the full rigor these courses offer. These courses are part of the School’s regular curriculum and are not toned-down versions amenable to generalists. So, if you like to plunge into the full challenge, these courses are for you.        

As you apply for registration as a Visiting Student, we will evaluate your background and gauge your suitability. In most cases, we will accept your application. Registration is guaranteed if one pays the course fee (see below).
