Dear aspirant…… I have no idea regarding courses offered at this institute. Lovely Professional University is one of the premier institutions of international repute and an avant - garde campus spread over 600 acres on the outskirts of Jalandhar City. It is a multi-disciplinary university in India that offers more than 150 programmes. In a short span of time, LPU has earned the right of becoming both, nationally and globally, the most preferred academic institute where quality dissemination of education is a way of life. LPU offers a wide range of courses across multiple streams and disciplines. LPU courses are offered across diploma, UG, PG and doctoral. Some of the streams across which LPU courses are offered are Engineering and Architecture, Computer Application and IT, Sciences, Hospitality and Tourism, Law and others. At LPU courses like B.Tech, B.Sc., M.Tech, M.Sc. are offered across multiple disciplines. Lovely Professional University is recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC). The courses run by LPU are also recognized by other statutory bodies. There are certain eligibility criteria that a student is required to meet to take admission at LPU. In general, the score in the previous qualification should be as required as per eligibility mentioned on the website. In addition to that, the candidate needs to qualify LPUNEST to get admission to courses like B.Tech., MBA, Hons, B.Pharm, MLT etc.. For some courses like BA, B.Comm, BBA etc LPUNEST is not mandatory. LPUNEST (Lovely Professional University National Entrance and Scholarship Test) is a national-level entrance test conducted by LPU and is considered for offering scholarships as well as determining Eligibility for admission in various programmes. The fee at LPU is very nominal when compared to the academic ambience and other facilities provided to the students. LPU offers 150+ courses and the fee is different for every course. At LPU the fee is as per the calibre of the student. It varies with the student's score and achievements in the previous academic record as well as their performance in LPUNEST and other national level tests. Apart from the scholarship schemes, LPU also offers financial aid to the students belonging to underprivileged students like orphans, persons with disability etc. or some specific groups like Wards of Defence personnel etc. I hope this will help
