Message from Dr Rajeev Chhetri
Dear Aspiring students,
At the outset, let me take this opportunity to introduce Patan College for Professional Studies (PCPS) and delve briefly on the requisite for its inception. The inception of PCPS began with a very simple thought, the desire to provide a globally accredited degree from a renowned UK university, here at Nepal. Taking into account the high degree of competitiveness and specialization required in a graduate of this generation, it is of utmost importance for a student to be equipped with the right degree and expertise to excel in the global arena.
It is with this end in view, that we seek to train our young men and women with the very best preparation for career and life after College. We believe strongly in the adage, ‘Education is for life, not just for a living’ and we seek to instill in our students a passion for learning that will incorporate the knowledge and understanding they will need, to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work. We take pride in our academic partnership with the University of Bedfordshire, to guide and support us in this venture.
In concluding, I welcome all aspiring students to PCPS. I would like to invite you to be a part of this academically stimulating an invigorating journey, in the course of which we shall learn to lead.
Dr. Rajeev Chhetri
