Kathmandu University is an autonomous, not-for-profit, non – government institution dedicated to maintain high standards of academic excellence. It is committed to develop leaders in professional areas through quality education.
It is located in a mountainous landscape in Dhulikhel Municipality about 30 kilometers east of Kathmandu (KTM) having round-the-year pleasant climate and panoramic Himalayan Views.
KU had a very modest start from a rented building at Tangal, Kathmandu. Now, it has been able to create a built up space of 46,846 square meters.
Within a period of 21 years, KU has built not only reasonable infrastructure, but also established a track record of academic excellence. At present, the University offers various undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs in science, engineering, medicine, management, education, arts, pharmacy, environment, music, human & natural resources, information technology and biotechnology, through School of Science, School of Management, School of Engineering, School of Medical Sciences, School of Education and School of Arts. In addition to 3695 students studying in its constituent campuses 7500 students are in its affiliated colleges.
The academic programs of the University are based on credit-semester system with continuous internal evaluations. The University has adopted 1 to 10 teacher–student ratio. However, KU is very cautious in recruitment of every single faculty or non-teaching staff. The staff strength at KU is 458 for teaching and 725 for nonteaching (Including Paramedical staff). The academic calendar of minimum 230 days is strictly adhered to; admission of students is based on merit, based on their score in the previous examination and written and oral entrance tests.
