We had asked KMAG page followers currently pursuing their study and career in Australia about their views on “Education in Australia” and how is it different from education in Nepal, in terms and teaching and learning experiences.
Whatever the course they focus on value based learning. On the first day of our class… Facilitator asked what were the values of our country; 90% of our class being Nepalese, we were looking at each other….What the hell are values Example given were care, love, respect at last and I wrote Unity, Peace… I dont remember the rest but anyway that was the beginning! And Reflection… Most important in adult learning. Thanks to that education…I know how to reflect upon my actions now. — Rasmita Bhattarai
Aneel Tshong :
This is my analysis of education in Australia.
Type 1: Universities with lot of focus on research, resources innovation, and development. They do offer coursework though. High level intellects and professors. Diverse in terms of student and nationality. Expensive education but somewhat worth it. Quality = high.
Type 2: city colleges, licensed campuses. Very minimal research and support. Mostly coursework. Less diversed and very few local students. Overly populated by south Asian students. Mostly mid level professors and associate professors. Bit expensive compared to its quality. Quality = OK, just like private colleges in Nepal.
Type 3: colleges and institutions. No research and support. Flexible in terms of attendance. Leaving few, others just need enrolment. No south Asian students = no survival. Less experienced teaching staff. Quality = potato.
Most Nepalese students fall into type 2 or 3.
Syllabus planning chae Nepal kae thik but how the lecturers teaches and how the students are made to research to submit the assignments and understand the context is something best about Australia. But the funniest thing is i was taught about simple tenses,prepositions,demand,supply in Bachelors lmao — Suden
Just 12 lectures per subject per sem. Lectures are basic and straight to the point. Need to research yourself to understand in depth. Assignments strictly your own research, own words. Easy to pass written examination but completing assignment is such a torment.

Course and materials in 🇦🇺-10/10
Lecturers and tutors🇦🇺- literally had 3lecturers changed in renowned uni based college at my times that co-ordinater literally came into class to bear with the situation;
Chinese lecturer literally spilled questions to chinese students which we happened to got through networking and the questions did match😂.
Overall , professionals teaching and lecturing is quite better in Nepal
Here you have to be very attentive regarding deadlines for assignment, quizzes, tests and exam.
Attendance-depends on uni, i have had uni which has lecture videos uploaded on student websites so 100% physical attendance was not needed.
Education in Australia is more of a research based like many western education, where courses are designed to give more practical knowledge and understanding on the subject through loads of assignments and self-learning styles, where as education in Nepal (and also India), is more like guiding students through set syllabus creating more importance and dependencies on a lecturer. Both has its own pros and cons, but based on the comments, can say Australian education system produces more critical and self-learned mass with better practical understanding and knowledge on the majored subject/courses.
Survey: Menstruation-related practices among urban youth
This survey is to be participated only by girls. If you are a male, and landed up here for whatsoever reason, you can play a part by distributing this survey form to your female friends.
Mensuration taboo has still been widely practiced in Nepali society, despite the rise in literacy and progressivism and rigorous attempt from all sides to normalize it. Those who keep the taboo alive have their own reasons and those who are fighting against it are still trying to understand why, especially educated groups, still follow the tradition despite knowing there is no neither science nor a rationality behind it.
This survey is conducted to understand the matter much more in general perspectives, their reasons, and their thoughts towards it; and to see the future of the taboo based on the data collected.
We would like to thank you in advance for participating in this survey. Because of your small contribution, we get to understand the matter from your eyes and state of minds, based on which we can have the more realistic and pragmatic views towards the issue.
Please note that this survey is conducted anonymously, which means your identity is unknown, so please be as honest as you could to get us more factual with our conclusion. Result of the survey will be published here on this website for public view. In case you have a problem accessing the form here on this page, please CLICK HERE.
Survey: Usage of banking services in Nepal
Banks play a vital role in the modern economy. Despite being a significant aspect of everyday life, there has been very little or no research done on the banking sector of Nepal from consumers’ point of view. Also, although banks offer a variety of services, majority people still understand banks for its traditional roles of lending and borrowing money.
This survey is thus conducted in an attempt to learn overall banking experience from consumers’ point of view. This survey is supported by Muktinath Bank. We will publish an article later through this website based on this survey result, to make it publicly available. We believe that this survey will help the banks in the future to take it as a reference to formulate their products and services.
This form is completely anonymous, which means we won’t be knowing your identity. So, please try to be as honest as you can. You can CLICK HERE for the survey form just in case you could not access the form below.
