About Merryland College Biratnagar
Merryland College Biratnagar (MCB) is a UK University College in Biratnagar that offers higher education in partnership with the University of Wolverhampton, UK and iAcademy New Zealand & Singapore. The college was established in 2014 with the joint effort of the Innovate Nepal Group (ING) and academicians from Biratnagar.
The objective of this partnership is to make globally recognized tertiary education (Undergraduate & Postgraduate) affordable in Biratnagar and surrounding areas. In addition, the partnership is also aimed at changing the dynamics of the prevalent orthodox teaching and learning system. ING would contribute its expertise towards running UK HE qualifications, while the local stakeholders would promote and encourage the local students and students in the surrounding community to embark on the tertiary qualifications that Merryland College Biratnagar offers.
At present we offer BA (Hons) International Business Management (BBM – International Business Management) qualification from the University of Wolverhampton, UK and iAcademy, New Zealand & Singapore. MCB is able to offer these qualifications from iAcademy and the University of Wolverhampton based on a “supported-delivery” model in Biratnagar.
