Making students’ academic dreams come true
- 5th Kathmandu Post Edu Con
Jul 7, 2018-The Kathmandu Post Edu Con began at Bhrikutimandap in Kathmandu on Friday. The Post met with British College Marketing and Communications Head Suman Shrestha to know his views on the three-day educational Fair. Title sponsor of the event, the British College offers Undergraduate Programmes and Postgraduate Programmes awarded by UK universities. Excerpts:
What is your expectation from this fair? How was the participation on first day?
There was impressive participation on inaugural day. We found that the students were curious to know about higher education opportunities available in Nepal and abroad. In our case, we have been providing international degrees, especially from the UK, in Nepal. We initially started with A-level and expanded many courses such as BBA, IT, MBA, MSc International Business Management, MSc Information Technolo- gy among other.
How this edition is different from the earlier ones?
All the stalls have gone technology savvy this time. Students are getting counselling along with presentations on different courses through mutli-media platform. All the 110 domestic and international academic institutions taking part in the fair are providing information via audio-visual medium. This, I believe will be more effective for the students to understand the nature of the college they are applying for.
Why is British College associated with The Kathmandu Post Edu Con?
There are multiple reasons for our tie-up with the Post for this Fair. Firstly, British College wants to convey the message to Nepali students that receiving internationally recognised degree is possible living in Nepal. We are here to make their academic dreams into reality while staying in their own country in cost effective way. Secondly, British College faculty members are professional academicians from the UK. We also have student exchange programmes and internships with multi-national companies. Our aim is to stop the brain drain from Nepal and make students aware about our presence here.
What are your suggestions for the students visiting the Fair?
Since the Fair has over 100 domestic and international educational institutions exhibiting under one roof, we want the students visit various exhibitors and decide what is best for them in their pursuit of higher education.
