The University of Oxford in the United Kingdom has launched a new initiative regarding education and public diplomacy. The initiative is titled the Oxford Pakistan program (OPP), which aims to promote various Pakistan-related activities at the University of Oxford.

A University of Oxford official took to Twitter to issue a statement on this matter. He said:

The program will include scholarships for graduate students, visiting fellowships for Pakistani faculty members, and special lectures on Pakistan. The OPP has drawn strong support from the University of Oxford, the High Commission for Pakistan in London, and the British High Commission in Islamabad.

About the Program

The Oxford Pakistan Program is spearheaded by Pakistani students, academics, and the alumni of Oxford University. Reports state that the OPP is the brainchild of the University of Oxford Professor Adeel Malik, Lecturer in Material Science, Dr. Talha J Pirzada, and Trainee Lawyer at Travers Smith Haroon Zaman.

The initiative has been launched to establish a framework for support, scholarships, and facilitation for students from Pakistan for academic and research pursuits in the world-renowned University. In addition to promoting Pakistan-centric research, the program will also sponsor a lecture series on eastern philosophy.

According to media reports, the program has raised pledges of over £500,000 from Pakistani business people and other key members of the Pakistani diaspora in the UK.

While the Oxford Pakistan program is an excellent opportunity for Pakistani students to fulfill their higher studies dreams, most students do not know of its existence. We hope that this article brought you face to face with a significant scholarship opportunity to brighten your prospects.

Launch of the Program

The initiative was launched at a high-profile event in London at Pakistan’s embassy. The key attendees included the High Commission for Pakistan in London and the British High Commission in Islamabad. The event was also attended by several distinguished academicians from Oxford, including approximately 21 professors and fellows, principals, and heads of Oxford Colleges.

The senior members of the university expressed their strong support for the new initiative in Pakistan. They said that this initiative would help consolidate Pakistan-related academic activities and facilitate access to underrepresented communities.

Here is a Twitter thread sharing some highlights of the launch event:
