On February 8, The British College celebrated its ongoing partnership with Leeds Beckett University by putting on their first-ever Alumni Meet at the Hotel Yak and Yeti. Organised by The British College, its Founder and CEO Rajen Kandel and their Executive Principal Joey Foster Ellis, the event signified TBCs longstanding commitment to transnational education in Nepal. Since The British College began with its BSc IT(Hons) Computing and MBA with LBU in 2013, in the past seven years, it has grown to a school of almost 2000 students with 600 LBU graduates across three different programs and now has 900 active students within The British College’s LBU programs.
Engaging on the concept of promoting global education and connecting students from TBC and LBU, the Alumni Meet intended to further connect their alumni globally with the integration of alumni from Nepal as well. Moreover, this meet also advocated to help Nepalese students to bring exchange of information and resources to ultimately provide the platform to retrieve extended resources and showcase their skills at international level.
Professor Jeanne Keay, Pro Vice Chancellor Global Engagement explained,” The Alumni Meet was held to celebrate our partnership with The British College; it made us explore more future possibilities and further development of the partnership. Since 2013, the students at the TBC have been studying various programs to get a Leeds Beckett University degree. We’re definitely looking at something that goes far beyond just a business arrangement. What we want is for our staff to work together, and possibly undertake research together, to visit each other's campuses and explore opportunities around the world from partner colleges.” Both The British College and Leeds Beckett University will continue to work in promoting and encouraging diversity enabling close intercultural learning along with exchanging of talents, expertise and resources leading to career development and investment prospects between the alumni in the forthcoming years
