Info

Started back in 1996 as one of the pioneering IT colleges in Nepal, Islington College, now a premier college in Nepal, offering world-class IT and Business academic qualifications. Islington College has a long and proud track record in providing high-caliber human capital to the IT and Business industry since 1996. We offer high-quality overseas degree programmes through partnerships with established international universities and institutions from Singapore and the UK.

Having grown from strength to strength, the College directly partners with London Metropolitan University (LondonMet) to deliver their Bachelor degrees in Computing; Computer Networking & IT Security; Multimedia Technologies; and Business Administration (BBA) programmes for in-country provision. Being the first academic institution in Nepal to run UK university undergraduate programmes, students may choose to study at our Kathmandu Campus, LondonMet's North London or Moorgate Campus.

Islington College takes an innovative approach to providing access to affordable higher education and bringing the learning experience beyond textbooks and classrooms to engage the mind, body and spirit of our students. Partnering with leading universities and institutions across the world, we offer the most sought after undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, combined with current industry practices to help students connect with the competitive employment market. Our wide range of modern facilities and recreational activities offer a rich and vibrant college life.

We remain focused on nurturing talent. With our unwavering drive towards quality excellence, a culture of collaboration and a commitment to the development of our students, we inspire in our students the passion to learn and excel, and ultimately preparing them for the challenges in the real world. This might be the reason why our alumni are working in various international IT companies like Microsoft & Google. Moreover, several premier IT companies in Nepal are either founded by Islington graduates or employ some of her 3500+ graduates. In a span of 19 years of, Islington boasts approx. 1200 students and employs 100 full time teaching and non-teaching staffs.

Starting from 2014, we have introduced London Metropolitan University's M.Sc. IT in Computing. This is in line with our continual effort in bringing world-class UK education to Nepalese students. And with the introduction of these course, Nepali students can now carve their future in IT or Business sector and this will open avenues for their future in global IT and business arena. This, we believe, is the reason why Islington is considered as one of the premier IT & Business School in Nepal.
