Ms Rosemary Gosling, the Director, External Studies LSE has paid a two-day visit to the University in this context.

Welcoming Ms Rosemary, the Chancellor of LPU, Mr Ashok Mittal said: " This endeavour is not only beneficial and matter of honour for the LPU but the Punjab State itself where the universities of great importance and standing like University of London decided to expand in India. Moreover, the sole aim of our University is to accord maximum number of opportunities to our progressive students. These programmes will give opportunity to the students to get degrees of both University of London International Programmes and that of LPU. This will help student to be employed not only in India but also across globe. The important factor of this program is that the Fee-Structure for these will not be high. I have great admiration for this great and preferred opportunity accorded by the International programmes of the University of London, and to Ms Gosling for helping us to further the development and continuous progress in the field of education."

On this occasion, Ms Rosemary Gosling said: "We are expanding our educational programmes world over. We have been coming to India for the last fifteen years and this time, we, of course are pleased that the largest university of India, LPU is interested in offering our programmes In addition to feeling warmth accorded to me in a beautifully designed expanse of the University, I have been much impressed by the very good Infrastructure, Laboratories, Libraries, Hostels and many thousands of students hailing from different countries and states of India. Meeting the higher authorities of the University and having interactions with the staff and students, I have grasped that LPU has great potential in regard to internationalization and we hope to work together along these lines."

The University of London has been in existence for more than 180 years and has offered International Programmes to students all over the world for over 150 years. The University and its constituent colleges have high reputation for academic distinction in teaching and research, both in the UK and internationally.
