Kathmandu, 10 September,2015: Kingâ€™s College has recently entered a partnership that has the potential of becoming the next majorÂ milestone in the Nepali Education Sector. The college has officially switched their affiliation to WestcliffÂ University in the United States. A fully accredited university incorporated in the state of California,Â Westcliff has agreed to enroll Nepali Students into their prestigious MBA and BBA programs at a fractionÂ of the cost of their degree in their stateside campuses. This fact alone should prompt many NepaliÂ students mulling higher education abroad to stay back in the country.
With prices comparable to those charged by domestic universities, Kingâ€™s efforts have made a trulyÂ international program affordable for the average Nepali student. Rigorously designed to be highlyÂ practical, the courses run under the Westcliff programs are simultaneously conducted by a lead facultyÂ based in the United States and a local faculty at Kingâ€™s College. Such a system of dual faculties will clearlyÂ enable the students to think globally without losing touch with the ground realties at home.
Westcliffâ€™s accreditation will also ensure that their curriculum is always up-to-date, the grading is fair,Â the programs are completed on time and that both the university and Kingâ€™s College comply with theÂ quality standards set by the accrediting body. In addition, an accredited American degree will alsoÂ improve the studentsâ€™ prospects for foreign employment, international exchanges and higher education.
The availability of accredited academic programs at affordable prices may also attract manyÂ international students from around the region to Nepal. Kingâ€™s is admittedly excited by this possibilityÂ and believes that a multinational education environment will truly complete the experience ofÂ international quality education at Kingâ€™s. A press statement released by the college concluded that theÂ affiliation switch is only the first step in realizing Kingâ€™s vision of delivering a high quality education toÂ students in the region.
