Far Western Region: An ultimate resort of academic quests   


Ten plus two education in Nepal has earned good fortune in course of time, which plays a meaningful role to help students get fundamental education to usher their academic caliber into university level.


The plus two schools/colleges have mushroomed in urban, sub-urban and bucolic areas. In addition, private schools and colleges are popular in urban areas whereas public and community based schools and colleges have made remarkable contributions in rustic swathes. Students of city-centered areas are inclined to pursue Science and Management based courses whereas college hopefuls of city outskirts are in pursuit of Education, Management and Humanities syllabuses.


Amid these disciplines, Humanities has succumbed to student crises and has played a minimal role to produce skilled human resources. On the other hand, most students of sophisticated areas seem reluctant to pursue Humanities-based syllabuses. Reasons may vary with regard to the course choices of college hopefuls.


Mahendranagar and Dhangadhi of far western region are the major cities which possess high potentials of being educational hubs for myriads college hopefuls. Far-Western University, located in Mahendranagar, is a benchmark of academic excellence for the denizens of far western region. A large number of plus two schools and colleges have been established for imparting quality education. Radiant Secondary School, International Public School, Florida International Boarding School, Kanchan Vidya Mandir Secondary School,  Little Buddha Academy, Morning Glory School are the top-notch plus two institutions that offer plus two programs in a wealth of disciplines.

NAST, Aswairya, Sudur Pashchimanchal Academy, etc are the best plus two institutions that have been running plus two programs in Science and Management successfully. In both management and engineering programs, Dhangadhi is more popular than Mahendranagar. NAST is running BE Civil, BCA and BBA affiliated to Pokhara University whereas Nepal Western Academy is offering BBA-BI and BHM affiliated to Pokhara University. However, Nepal Western International College imparts BBA and MBA courses in association with foreign university. Kailali Multiple Campus—the historical and largest campus—has contributed a lot for producing human resources in various fields and its popularity increasing in course of time, which offers BBS, BBM, BA, B.Ed., B.Sc., MBS, MA, M.Ed. and plus two programs in Science, Management, Humanities and Education.


Dhangadhi and Mahendranagar are emerging as educational hubs, which is a good sign for all who are in pursuit of world-class education. Similarly, other cities like Nepalgunj, Surkhet, Dang, Butwal, Pokhara, Chitwan, Biratnagar, Dharan, etc. maintain the same status quo of delivering quality assurance to desperate students. Furthermore, such institutions have emasculated the mindsets of people presuming to acquire quality education only in Kathmandu.


The marvelous results of these academic institutions have corroborated the veracity that Kathmandu is not only the destination for higher education as they take the lead in preparing adept human resources and bring academic reforms in the test of time.
