Message from the Vice Chancellor,KU

As our country and the world stand at this critical juncture of history, where there are myriad possibilities within our capacity for making lives of people better, more than ever before, responsibilities fall on our shoulders to adva

nce the cause of scholarship for the service of this country and the rest of humanity.

Through enduring impacts in education, research, innovation and service in diverse fields, we are now capable to address the challenges which seemed to be insurmountable in not too distant past.

Message from the Dean, School of Arts, KU
National College, an autonomously managed academic organization affiliated to Kathmandu University is a pioneer in the areas of Development Studies and  Development Finance. Long before, any other socio-economic Development subject was offered directly by the university, National College was given the green signal to commence Development Studies. Its continuing popularity underlines the relevance and utility of the subject in the present context of Nepal. In recognition of this important development niche, Kathmandu University started the Master in Development Studies a few years back. Development Finance is relatively new and difficult subject. Despite many challenges, it is now entering its sixth year of operation. The first batch of graduates is in the market and initial indications are quite encouraging.

    'Doctor treats one patient at a time and leader treats thousands.' This was the line that hit my mind. I left the dream to become a doctor and pursued my passion. I got SAF scholarship and joined BDevS in National College. National College is helping me to enhance my leadership skills and broadening my knowledge by practical and research based education.

    I am glad that I got SAF scholarship to pursue BDevS in National College. The curriculum is based on theories and research works in a way that the students get to study different aspects of society. Field trips helped us get a pure knowledge and clear images about society as a whole. We are encouraged of thinking critically and asking questions in many situations. Dema Tshering, Bhutan

    In June 2012, I was carrying out a thorough web search to filter out the best college in Nepal to enroll in a Bachelor’s level course. There were a number of issues to be considered: first, I was resuming my studies after eight years of study gap; second, I wanted to join in a course that would complement my four years of experience in United Nations Department for Safety and Security Nepal, and the most important one, I needed to ensure that the course would be delivered through a practical approach rather than traditional approach of textbook learning. All these considerations led me to National College.

    The two years in the college has molded me into a person much better, with better understanding, capabilities and skills. Having built a capacity to see environment around you with the broad spectrum, and not just from one perspective is something which makes me feel proud as a student of this college.
