Universal College

Shantinagar, Kathmandu

Universal College, located at Shantinagar, Kathmandu is a unique Educational Institution for higher studies, which is established in 2054 B.S. by a team of visionary professionals in the field of Nepalese academia.

The journey of the college began with a solitary TU affiliated BBS program in 2054 BS and extends now to the most sought programs like BBA, B.A., BSW, and M.A. (English). These extensions to the most popular programs themselves witness the quality of education being rendered by the college and mark the success made by the Universalians in the job-market and their real life.

This has been possible because the college, since its inception, boasts of a team of renowned faculty members acclaimed nationally in varied fields, including finance, management, commerce, IT, research, and social sciences; many of whom have proved their worth through authorship, policy research, entrepreneurship, and so on to cite a few. The team of such experts is committed to transforming the students into those competent leaders who champion the values of truth, justice and peace at all walks of life in this swiftly changing world. The standard of  the team is further substantiated by the outstanding results of the students at all levels.

Additionally, highly self-disciplined college environment, excellent physical facilities, smart academic activities and different sporting events always motivate our students to indulge enthusiastically in whatever task they undertake and keep them agile during the college hours. Therefore, learning is fun here rather than bookish compulsion. Our emphasis is on encouraging students to learn how to learn. 

Furthermore, the College encourages every student to be a job creator rather than a job seeker and to play the role of being a successful designer of the future. At the end of their studies at UC, the graduating students are expected to enter the larger world with a life long appetite for learning and the desire for making our world a better place.

The college is best known for:

  • → E- library
    • → Modern computer labs with 24-hour free internet and WiFi services
  • → Interactive classrooms
  • → Scientific teaching with multimedia projector, audio-visual-aid
