Who are we?
Leeds University Pakistan Society oversees a vibrant community of students at Leeds with an interest in Pakistan. Our aim is to showcase and display Pakistani culture, bring the community together and act as a support network. By leveraging our strengths across the university, we organise social events, discussion panels and cultural events shedding light on contemporary issues of importance, while introducing people to the various cultures that define Pakistan’s identity. Pakistani students, both domestic and International, are welcome to come along as well as those with an interest in Pakistan.
