Info

Andrew J Wild College, located in the serene environment at Panipokhari, Maharajgunj is a pioneering A Level College in Nepal. Established in 2001 by Mr. Mohan Mickey Giri, a Nepalese social entrepreneur and educationist, the college advocate for change in higher education. The College is named after Andrew Jonathan Wild, a British expat and physics teacher at Budhanilkantha School, who first introduced and afterwards, coordinated Cambridge A-levels in Nepal for many years. Andrew Jonathan Wild, a philanthropist, was a life changing force in the life of Mr. Mohan Micky Giri who supported Mr Giri all the way for his education. So, to pay his debt back with a grand tribute, Mr. Giri established this college after his name as “gurudakshina” where everyone can learn despite any constraint. So we hold the strong believe that everyone can learn, lead and succeed provided they get the good exposure where they can understand their inner drive tapping on their interest. So with this vision, our college aims to provide students with, not only academic knowledge, but the worldly skills required to bridge the gap between youth and adulthood so as to produce responsible and productive citizens of the nation.

Unlike other colleges, AJW focuses more on everyone’s overall potential, rather than just their academic qualifications. We believe that anyone with the will to learn must not be exempt from doing so because of external factors like financial inability or previous educational status. We pride ourselves on our ability to connect someone with potential to the right resources for turning their potential into reality.

Our selection and overall learning process involve not only academic excellence, but an overall personality development with clear focus on essential skills like time management, problem solving, socializing, to name a few, which are essential in our everyday life. We also help the students to find the right exposure to develop their own unique talents. So, AJW provides a holistic experience for our students in an environment where students can acquire education and applied skills to fully develop in their own. A combination of experienced and dedicated teaching staff, student-centered learning environment, ample resources as well as individual attention and guidance provides our students with all the basics to grow into a productive member of the society.

We get charged with more energy to give our best when we see this organization growing more and more and making its unique presence in the field of higher education. So, thank you Mr. Andrew for helping Mr. Giri envisioning his dream, as a result of which, dreams of many people like him, are being fulfilled through the educational institute which is named after you. The Testimony of it is the 35 students of the batch 2015/17 who are studying under 100 % scholarship. So we proudly say that we have been successful to establish this institute as the best A Level institute in Nepal and we are committed to maintain this spirit in the days to come.

Salient Features

Academics

At AJW College, we have a completely new approach to academic education, as compared to other institutions. Instead of studying 4-5 different subjects in one day and returning home with a jumble of information, we focus on learning one subject per day.

During a 4 ½ hours of classroom activities, the students learn the theoretical and practical aspects of the topic they are studying through an experienced teacher and gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter through experiments, questions, discussions, debate and pop quizzes, all in the same day. This is followed by a 1 ½ hour of catch-up class where they can question anything that they don’t understand through a younger, dynamic teacher who they can better relate to.

The academic activities of the day are regularly broken up with frequent breaks and an assortment of activities which prevent monotony.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Sound mind lies in sound body. For sound body we need some hours of exercise. Considering this fact, we facilitate a range of extracurricular activities for every student. Our class starts with yoga and meditation of half an hour followed by sports, arts, music, literature and many more in different times of a day every day. Every year our college hosts different five big events of ECAs.

Club Activities

Each and every student becomes the part of at least one club on the basis of their area of interest (though they may choose to be part of multiple clubs), which will facilitate them to further their learning in chosen field of their own. We now have four clubs in operation, namely: Social Service Club, Academic Club, Sports Club, Art and Creativity Club. We are soon going to form the music, dancing, drama, debate, science, mathematics and many more clubs.

Within these clubs, students will find a community of like-minded individuals with similar interests who can help them learn and grow. They will also learn leadership, team work, thoughtfulness, responsibility and creative thinking within the clubs.

The clubs will also be encouraged to organize and host intra-school and inter-school events to broaden their horizons.

Seminars and Trainings

Related to club activities, the college facilitates seminars and trainings time and again where interested students can learn the ins and outs of their chosen fields from professionals who have been working for years and have made a significant impact within their industry.

Yoga and Meditation

A calm mind is better equipped to learn new things. Hence, we do yoga and meditation everyday to stimulate our minds, calm our senses and improve our overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.

Amenities

To facilitate the overall academic, physical, mental, and social improvement of the students, AJW provides the following amenities to the students:

Library

AJW has a fully stocked library with text books, reference books, newspapers, magazines, journals and other educational and recreational books for the use of students. In every academic session, we provide a set of original textbook to students which they have to keep in order and return to the college library upon the completion of the academic session. The library also carries sufficient amount of reference materials to tide them through the academic year.

Laboratory

We also have fully equipped laboratories so that students can gain practical knowledge on the subject matter without much difficulty. For science students, a practical session will be held every day to complement their theoretical knowledge of the topic at hand.

Computer Lab

AJW College has a fully equipped computer lab with internet access for the exclusive use of students. On top of that, the computer lab also helps to manage laptops for students in case they need to work on college assignments or to simply learn more at the comfort of their own homes.

Playground

The sport department offers a range of sporting facilities within the college compound. Students can enjoy basketball, volleyball, badminton, football and other indoor sports within the college premises. For bigger ECA events, AJW College arranges fully equipped playground outside where students can practice their sports without any inconvenience.

Canteen

We have got good canteen which is all set to provide healthy meal to each and every student everyday. The canteen regularly introduces different cuisines (French, Chinese, Italian etc) to enhance the taste-buds of the students and maintain balanced diet.

Music and Dance

AJW provides a fully equipped music and dance studio to encourage students to develop their musical abilities and practice their dance moves. The students will have full access to the musical instruments of their choice and will regularly be coached by professional musicians and dancers.

Scholarships

Andrew J Wild College offers full and partial scholarships to deserving students on the basis of their need and merit. A majority of our students are supported by sponsors arranged through AJW Value Varsity.

We believe financial difficulty should never be a barrier when it comes to education. Hence, we have special arrangements for disadvantaged students who have the will to educate and create a better future but lack the resources to make their dreams come true. We have special quotas for students from impoverished backgrounds, students with disabilities, earthquake victims and so on.

Besides need-based scholarships, we also provide scholarships to deserving students who have shown considerable talent and potential in one field or the other, including sports, music, dance, literature to name a few.

Counseling and Support

Besides, academic support and extra-curricular activities, kids in their late teens (who make up the majority of A-level students) need considerable outside support and guidance at this particular stage in their lives. Hence, we provide free counseling services for all our students.

Career Counseling

As A-level is a defining stage where students make some of the most important decisions regarding their future career they need proper guidance when it comes to making the right choice. Our career counselors help young students acquire all the information needed to choose the right career path. We also help them seek good networking opportunities and even help them gain some real life experience in their chosen fields. Moreover, our career counselors assist needy and deserving students with the resources to find scholarships to pursue their advanced studies.

Behavioral Counseling

Young people in their late teens (who make up the majority of A-level students), often find themselves struggling for various reasons in various areas of their lives as they start transitioning from a minor into a young adult. This is a crucial time for them and they need all the help at this point in their lives. Instead of judgment and rules, which can often backfire, our behavioral counselors listen to their problems, empathize and help them find their own solution to their problems. They provide proper guidance to the students and help them face the obstacles on their path to becoming a responsible adult.
