Student Exchange programme
Our students are ensured an enriching academic experience throughout their time with us and additionally through our student exchange programme. Students with good results and a solid financial background may have an opportunity to complete their degrees in the UK by transferring the final part of their studies to an approved educational establishment there; including UK universities and approved colleges. Students will have to meet the overseas institution’s acceptance criteria, but our officers are here to help our students every step of the way.
This experience gives our students a global exposure which will enable them to gain a deeper understanding of different cultures, educational systems and work environments. This experience will prepare our students for the global job market. At the British College, students will have the comfort and cost-effectiveness of remaining in Nepal whilst having unparalleled international exposure and experience.
Student life at the British College can be characterized as both exciting and vibrant. Our students are given the opportunity to develop holistically as individuals. We encourage our students to pursue a wide range of extra-curricular activities and fulfill themselves not only academically but also socially as individuals and as integrated members of a team with common aspirations. They will have every opportunity to take part in various activities e.g. sports fests, excursions and participation in student clubs and organizations. These activities are organized for our students to broaden their experiences outside the classroom.
The opportunity to participate in student exchange programme is an experience that only our students can have. Our Partner University and Colleges in the UK will give our students the chance to fulfill their dreams of studying abroad. We will be a listening college for our students; we believe the challenge to college staff and students is to secure for our students the best international university degree qualification; where you can suggest changes for continuous improvement, we will listen and we will act.

Blended learning – Blended learning is any time a student learns at least in part at a supervised
brick-and-mortar location away from home and at least in part through online delivery with some
element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace; often used synonymously with
Hybrid Learning (Horn and Staker, 2011).
I highly encourage you to read the Online and Blended Learning: A Survey of Policy and Practice of K-12 Schools Around the World by International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL).
