This dedicated course covers a range of topics related to education policies to teaching methodologies, curriculum designing and much more. The students are given the opportunity to learn teaching methodologies and how this can be used to improve the quality of Education in Nepal.
Students are trained to become trainers and tutors for all levels of education. However, doing this course does not mean you will have to pursue teaching only, it equips students to explore other fields such as conducting research and creating case studies.
The goal is to improve the provision of education in a competent age.

Besides, it covers themes on humanism, hospitality and co-existence in a society. It spans subjects such as Literature, Mass Communication/Journalism, Rural Economics, Population Studies and Sociology among others.

The course is designed for students who want to pursue a career in accounting, management and entrepreneurship. With a training in this course, students have a strong base to branch out into professions under accounting, business, hotel management and marketing, etc.
Students can then enhance knowledge gained from this course with management courses at the Bachelor’s level or Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Business Studies, Bachelor of Hotel Management and Bachelor in Travel and Tourism Management (BTTM) among others.
If a person is always eager to know how things work or why they work that way, then Ten Plus Two Science was created for them. This course provides an explanation to how human beings function and how the world around them operates, helping students in the particular field to use this knowledge to develop the society and country.
The course includes subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer, Mathematics and Physics.
