More than 25 renowned UK institutions in Kathmandu

British Council presents the Education UK Exhibition from 25th-28th February 2014 (11:00 to 17:00 hours) at the Everest Hotel, New Baneshwor, Kathmandu and the Hotel Pokhara Grande, Pardi, Pokhara.

With a view to promoting UK education and increasing the understanding of the UK's expertise in education, the event is organised in an exclusive way where students and parents will get a chance to meet the representatives from 32 different UK institutions. There will also be seminars and presentations by representatives from the British Council, the British High Commission (UKBA) and UK institutions.

The event is the biggest opportunity for face to face discussions and interaction among the alumni, students, aspirants, parents, career advisers, agents, representatives and people from all walks of life looking to broaden their educational horizons in a modern and professional way. The growing demand for overseas education is becoming more apparent as many Nepalese students pursue higher/further education and those who already have qualifications seek to upgrade or update them. 

One of the most popular education destinations these days is the UK. A British education, famous for its breadth and academic excellence, offers outstanding education to students from all over the world. Independent thinking and student centred learning are the hallmarks of the British degree courses. British higher education offers shorter and more intensive courses than are available in many other countries. Moreover, there is a commonly held belief that UK qualifications add value, give a competitive edge and increase employment prospects.

Studying abroad is becoming more and more popular with a variety of career opportunities available for aspirants and students. In many cases students are in a dilemma with regard to choosing the right career. Taking this into consideration, this exhibition is focused on guidance about the career opportunities that are available, enabling prospective students to make the right career and education choices.

A full list of the institutions participating in the exhibition is provided below.
