about

Islington College is an autonomous private education institution dedicated to excellent academic performance and student experience. Established in 1996, the college has had nearly a couple of decades long experience in providing quality and industry-ready IT and Business Education to Nepalese students, making it a leading Academic Institution in Nepal.

Having grown from strength to strength, the College is now directly affiliated with UK universities. For example, the College now directly partner with London Metropolitan University (LondonMet) to deliver their Bachelor degrees in Computing; Computer Networking & IT Security and Multimedia Technologies programmes for in-country provision. Being the first and only academic institution in Nepal to run a UK university undergraduate programme, students may choose to study at both our Kathmandu Campus and LondonMet’s North London Campus.

“Students may choose to study at both our Kathmandu Campus and LondonMet’s North London Campus”

The College also has a direct articulation agreement with the University of Northampton such that students who study various programmes in the College may proceed to Northampton for the final-year of their BSc. (Hons) Computing programme. Given its new partnerships with UK universities, as well as the appointment of senior executives who have been educated at top UK universities, the College changed its name to Islington College in mid-2011.
