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
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.
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 yea
Andrew J Wild College invites all applications from applicants with an SLC or equivalent qualifications. Admission into the College is granted on the basis of a range of qualifications including academic aptitude, exceptional potential in extra-curricular activities like sports, music, arts, literature or similar fields.
To apply for admission, a potential applicant will have to sit down for a written test that evaluates not only academic performance, but also mental aptitude, problem solving and other similar skills to get an overview of the applicants overall potential. The next and final stage involves an interview with the student and their guardians to assess their personality and potential.
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.
