Pokhara University has higher quantity of students after Tribhuvan University. The relationship and coordination of the university with the private affiliated colleges is very impressive. There are quite a lot of improvements in the examination system of the university. The university has full trust and faith towards the colleges running specialized courses. The university offers those programs which are saleable in the global market.

In spite of many features of the university, what other possible improvements should be made in the management sector?

The university should focus more on the improvements of the examination system. The faculty members should be provided with proper training and seminars for the updated syllabus. There must be the evaluation and supervision system from the dean office about the performance and activities of the colleges. There must be the proper flow of information from the colleges and the dean offices.

What suggestion would you give students wishing to pursue higher education in an outstanding college?

First of all, the students should know about the university, colleges before getting enrollment. Similarly, they should also be familiar with the course content, fee structures before choosing any subjects or any colleges. Bachelor level studies are related to career pursuits, so, the students of this level should be sanguine to figure out their rewarding careers.
