Higher education in Nepal started in 1958 with the establishment of Tribhuwan University. At present, it has six universities. In addition, there are two more institutions that run medical courses.

The quality of Nepalese education has remained an important issue in the country. The University Grants Commission (UGC) provides government support to higher education institutions, and functions as a coordinating body. Its committees work on accreditation, scholarship, academic, grants and research promotion.

Meanwhile, the Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB), established in 1989, runs the education system’s 10+2 structure. The HSEB prepares students for the world of work and for general higher education and professional disciplines.

Current issues under review include the creation of uniform university management and evaluation systems, as well as the development of relevant curricula.
