The inception of Patan College began with this very simple thought, the desire to provide a globally accredited degree from a renowned UK university in our own backyard. This initial thought was put into motion by launching very incisive research into Universities in the United Kingdom (UK). The search was exhaustive, painstaking but rewarding, as it led the college on to the University of Bedfordshire (UoB), with over a hundred years of experience as a quality education provider in the UK.

Patan College for Professional Studies has been permitted by the Ministry of Education, Nepal Government to offer B.Sc.(Hons.) in Computer Science & Software Engineering, BSc (Hons) CSSE with Micro degree in AI and BBA (Hons.) in academic partnership with the University of Bedfordshire. Both these courses have been recognized by Tribhuvan University, Nepal.

The University of Bedfordshire is a modern, innovative university with a heritage of top quality education dating back more than 100 years. The University of Bedfordshire has earned a place in the Times Higher Education (THE) annual World University rankings for the second year running.

The internationally renowned league table has placed Bedfordshire in the 601 to 800 category of best universities in the world.
