KMC Lalitpur

The government of Nepal allocates 700 seats for candidates who want to pursue a Bachelor in Public Health (BPH)  in Nepal. In 2024, the government allocated 198 seats for students who wish to study BPH in Nepal. 

Available scholarship seats are divided into the general scholarship (55%, i.e., 109 seats) and the reservation scholarship (45%, i.e., 89 seats). In both categories, the candidates are selected purely based on merit within this cluster. 

For example, for the general scholarship, 109 highest-ranking students in the MECEE-BL for the BPH exam are chosen irrespective of gender, religion, and ethnicity. For reservation, the competition will be only among the eligible clusters of students in each sub-category. For example, 24 female students will be selected to study BSc Nursing based on the merit list. 

Public Health Colleges affiliated with four Universities (TU, Purbanchal University, Pokhara and Rajarshi Janak University) and three health science academies ( KAHS, MBAHS, and MIHS) offer BPH programs in Nepal.
