Dean of Undergraduate Laws tours Pakistan


Our Dean of Undergraduate Laws, Simon Askey, recently undertook a 10-day tour of the University’s affiliated teaching centres in Pakistan, showcasing the University's educational partnerships in the country.

Mr Askey was accompanied by Saad Wasim, Regional Advisor, South Asia for University of London Worldwide, on visits to 16 of the University’s Recognised Teaching Centres, including those in Islamabad, Lahore, Faisalabad and Karachi.

They attended two graduations and three high-achiever ceremonies, and held meetings with the Country Director for Exams at the British Council, the Director of Legal Education at the Pakistan Bar Council, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Law and Justice, and the Federal Minister for Narcotics and Special Adviser to the Prime Minister, who is an alumnus of the University.

Not only did the visit provide an insight into our positive work in Pakistan, it also demonstrated the delivery of transnational education in a field in which the University excels. The visit followed the highly successful Teaching Centres Symposium held earlier this year in Senate House.

Simon Askey said:

“It was a pleasure to be in Pakistan – as always - and witness the hard work of our Recognised Teaching Centres, as well as the achievements of individual students.  There is a real commitment to education in Pakistan, and the University of London continues to provide opportunities for Pakistani students to achieve a highly coveted and globally- recognised degree. The hospitality was as generous as ever, and I look forward to my next visit.”
