Social Works Program
Social and community works for the less privileged have always been among special features of the college. The college conducts social works program for the degree students. It is important to note as per rules of the University of Peshawar, a fifteen days compulsory social and community work is to be performed by every regular student of BA/BSc. The social work program is carried out in the remote hilly and underdeveloped areas. It includes repairs of broken roads and tracks, arrangements of free medical camps, distribution of medicine among local poor and needy patients, teaching in the local schools and most importantly plantation of trees with the collaboration of the forest department of government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We appreciate the help extended to us by the forest department.The female students perform their social work within Peshawar. Their work mainly includes cleaning of the college campus and its surrounding areas, white washing, painting and plantation on the campus.
English Immersion Program
The English department also hosts a massive programme known as English Immersion. It is a crash course of two weeks in English language for First year students before starting their regular studies at College. It not only gives them confidence to handle English as medium of learning but also an opportunity to adapt to the unique academic and cultural milieu of Edwardes. It helps students from diverse backgrounds to blend themselves into one Edwardian family. It is a compulsory program during which students are encouraged to speak in English on campus. Students are charged a reasonable fee for this program. Dates for this session's English Immersion Program will be announced at the time of Admissions.
