Message from Mr. Rajendra Man Sherchan
Thames is more than just a place where you come to study for your degree. It is a community of students and faculty from diverse background coming together with a common belief that learning is a lifelong process. On one hand, you will always find being pushed to take responsibility of your own learning while on the other hand you will be encouraged to question, challenge and critically reflect both in and outside the classroom.
Through our integrated Liberal Arts Programs, you will have many opportunities to learn about the wider world, while you continue to develop the expertise in the area of your own interest. You will be offered Community Service opportunities to develop understanding of the contemporary social issues both at global and local level.
