QAA Progress

1.      Introduction.

KBC was established on 2060 B.S on the principle of “cost recovery and quality education. The motto of the institution is "to the stars by hard ways…”.  The College was founded by educationists with the aim of providing quality education to the students of all sectors of the nation.

With the overwhelming demand of the society, KBC upgraded from class 12 to Bachelor’s Degree including  BASW in 2062 B.S., BSc CSIT in 2069 B.S, BBM and BCA in 2075 B.S and Master Degree, MBS in 2070 B.S. The College received letter of intent (LOI) to submit the self-study report (SSR) on 2070 BS to get involvement   in Higher Education Reform Project (HERP) of UGC. After receiving the Letter of Intent (LOI), different committees were formed to prepare SSR report and the report was duly submitted QAA division of UGC on 21 Chaitra 2073 BS. A visit team led by Prof. Dr. Hridya Ratna Bajracharya and Mr. Gopal Archarya observed the college   on 15 Magh 2075 BS. The team pointed out existing shortcomings prevailing at the college and recommended necessary actions to be taken to improve the overall quality of the college. The college has rectified those shortcomings as pointed out by the visit team and welcomed the Pre Visit Team (PVT) on 15-17 September, 2019, led by the coordinator Prof. Dr. Kailash Nath Pyakuryal and member Ms. Aashma Adhikari and gave some further recommendation to improve the overall quality.

After fulfilling all the gaps as recommended by PVT, KBC submitted the response report and welcomed PRT including: Prof. Dr. Ravi M. Gor (Member, Foreign Expert) ,Prof. Dr. Subarna Shakya (Member), Prof. Dr. Tara Devi Chitrakar (Member) and  Ms. Aashma Adhikari (Staff Member) led by Prof. Dr. Kailash Nath Pyakurel (Coordinator) on 15-18 December,2019. Again, KBC submitted its final response report on 29th December 2019.  In 24th February 2020, UGC decided for the Accreditation and ultimately on 6th March 2020, Kathmandu BernHardt College was declared as the First Private QAA College in Nepal.

With the recent changes in the educational sector, government of Nepal has adopted the policy of diversity in education introducing the concept of multi-university. Thus, the growing number of institutions is delivering higher education in different streams and are producing large number of graduates each year. However, limited studies have been made to explore the graduate’s position and status after completion of the study. In this context, as a QAA seeking institution, the college has tailored this tracer study report to obtain a better understanding of the employment status of the graduates as well as to identify the issues related to employment experiences, expectations and aspiration of graduates, which will be fruitful for initiating remedies in overall teaching learning environment, institutional facilities and curriculum.
