How did the pandemic affect classes?
We had to abruptly stop internal exams which were running smoothly before the pandemic. Students were not able to take the board exams on scheduled dates, and had to wait nine months for it. It was also difficult to maintain the academic calendar for the University, extending the semester as a result.
Online classes were not as effective because many of the subjects need laboratory and field work. Online classes also suffered from bandwidth issues and also it was difficult to keep student constantly engaged.
Why did you chose Pokhara as the location for your college?
Pokhara is not only a hub for toursim, but also for education.
We have a university along with plenty of schools and specialised colleges in engineering, medical, hotel management, and nursing. The people of Gandaki Province do not need to go abroad for higher education any more.
