Entrepreneurship: Writing Skills & Plagiarism

This course will approach entrepreneurship as a mindset, an attitude and a behaviour to undertake value‐creating initiatives in situations with a certain level of uncertainty that is expected to lead to the creation of a new business entity

Academic Writing Lab

The Academic Writing Lab (AWL), previously known as Academic Writing Centre (AWC), is the brainchild of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) at LUMS. It came into being to reinforce college writing skills so that the quality of assignments can be improved. The endeavour was initiated especially to work on the quality of research writing at higher-level courses. 

In order to make it a commendable experience at AWL, best-suited qualified writing tutors are taken on board, who are determined to ensure student-satisfaction so that it is a smooth college writing experience. With this facility available, students need not to fret about the structure and coherence of their argument. It is like half their worries are already taken care of, especially when students are struggling with the severe bout of writer’s block.
