So i joined this forum to draw the links once again to Nepal! anyways any1 here uni students or prospective uni students? i am going to uni soon and i would very much like to hear perspectives and experiences from a nepali student!

my other interest is world politics and uk mainly, so anyone similar to me do shout back! ;D

hi ramesh, for this big holiday that u have from june, why dont u try staying in northampton if u already have accomodation there? because then u could look for a job around tht place and it wil help u to save more money if u work there and live there, coz if u go to london, u wil have to find acomodation and a job as wel?
to look for jobs ur university should definitely help u or else goto google.com and type jobcentreplus and then go to tht website tht appears! and then follow and read instructions etc and u can locate many jobs.
so u hav a background in journalism? thts quite cool! so was tht back home in ktm? ;D

palomino..Yes, I was working for kantipur Television before I came here...I was in news desk,
And I want to leave Northampton in my vacation because I am living in Hostel, its expensive and my contract is till June, after that I should get new place wherever I live...thats why I intend to go to London and experience life there. I have found no Nepali people in this place yet, so I am not enjoing this place to live, without class 4 months would be horrible for me,and its small place to get job is also so hard.............. :- :(

Hi Hanuman Ji,

First up all may I ask you what does ILE means? Are you suggesting that you will be paying home student fee and therefore its cheap for you to study in Wales and not in London? If I were you, I would go to Wales and finish my studies there, as the main concern in the UK for overseas students is - International Student Fees which is around 10K/year if you want to study in renowned institue.
Wales is a very nice place to live, and there are job opportunities, but it really depends on what sort of job you're looking.

Subjects you want to study -
Science - Science covers broad subjects, could you be more specific?
IT - same as Science - IT also coveres wide subjects, be specific and let me know what do you want to do in IT or Science.

Cheers,
Jenish,

Hi Hanumanji,

Thanks for providing me the course information. Basically its Computer Science course and there is a demand in the market. But if you're new to the computers then you might struggle in your first year, but don't worry you can always do some extra work at home, and there are lots of online resources to learn computers.
Your course coveres vast subject for eg; Programming, Networking, Database, Multimedia, Web etc. First year is your chance to pick up one major field and concentrate on that subject so that can make career out of it.
You might not like programming but like Mulitmedia or Database, in the second year you will have choice to select the optional subjects where you can select relevant subjects for you course. There is a need of computer experts in the UK market.

FYI - movie Braveheart was based on Scotish history (13th century) so don't worry it won't be like that :) When was there last time it reminded me of Nepal. You can always go there and check it out before you join the college.
I hope this information is useful!!

Cheers,

its really nice to have sb support you like this man..anyway, i know comp. is a new field to me that the reason i am trying to do my associates in comp. science. well i guess i have to do some programming classes for this degree just to get my feet wet. anyway, i still wonder how the nepalese students pay for this college in UK man.

thanks again man.

You are welcome and good luck with your studies...

Not to forget that Nepalese are hard workers. They study, and work hard on their holidays (specially summer and Christmas holidays) they take a year out and earn more money to pay towards their studies. Take some bank loans and use credit cards. Take loans from friends and family and its hard to get over it, but eventually they will.
Some students give up and goes to different direction, which is give up studies and 'earn money' but I would advise all the Nepalese student here to study hard first and then work towards earning money. If you have a decent degree then its not hard to get a proper job here and start paying your deaths and living a good life!!
