This year’s SLC results came out few days before. SLC can be considered a ticket for higher education for Nepali students. I would like to share some information about studying psychology in Nepal after SLC.
With successful completion of SLC (School Leaving Certificate) exams, Nepali students complete their secondary education and get enrolled for Higher Secondary (grade 11 – 12) education under Higher secondary education Board (HSEB) under Ministry of Education. It offers four streams of studies: science, management, humanities and education. Psychology is taught under humanities and education streams in private colleges. There are limited colleges which offer psychology as one of the major subjects under Humanities.
See sample curriculum:
Another way of studying psychology is by getting enrolled in A level program. A-Level is an Advanced Level GCE (General Certificate of Education) qualification, equivalent to a two-year intermediate level, run under Cambridge International Examination (CIE) Board. There are many colleges and independent schools offering Cambridge GCE A-Level courses in Nepal. This is especially useful for students who aspire to study aboard after this qualification.
