Oldest Universities in Nepal


What are the oldest Universities in Nepal? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing a list of 9 Nepalese Universities ordered by year of establishment and meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Nepalese higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to highlight which Nepalese Universities have the longest history and tradition and how this correlates to their uniRank University Ranking.
