About Campus

Mahendra Ratna campus (MRC), Nepal’s leading teacher education institution is one of the widely recognized and established constituent campuses of Tribhuvan University (TU). MRC has earned its name and fame not only at present context but also in the history of education in Nepal due to its academic excellence and professional dedication. MRC was originally established in 1956 as College of Education at Basantapr in Kathmandu. As a pioneer institute for teacher education in Nepal, MRC has been dedicated to teaching, training and mentoring the students of education right from its establishment.

Mahendra Ratna Campus has a glorious history which goes back to 1956 when the government ran Normal Educational Training which was handed over to this campus. In 1972, the campus came under TU as a constituent campus and since then it had been running pre-service teacher education programs of all levels of education i.e. Proficiency Certificate Level (PCL), Bachelor’s Level and Master’s Level. The PCL has now been phased-out as a part of the TU policy and now it runs teacher education programs of Bachelor’s and Master’s level.

The courses at MRC primarily emphasize teacher education, teacher professional development, and educational research. By launching specialized courses in the pertinent areas of teacher education, MRC has employed the focused attention in developing innovative and capable teachers with highest understanding of moral values. MRC has recently extended its educational programs in the subjects like B. Ed. in ICTE (in semester system), M. Ed. in all subjects (semester system), including M. Ed. in Health Education and Economics Education, and so on. It has been an extended family of almost 5,000 students, their guardians, more than 200 teachers (i.e. Prof., Associate Prof., Lecturers, Contract and part-time teachers), more than 50 office bearers, and many more advisors and well wishers. The successful team of updated teachers, staff and other employees have led the institution so as to compete perfectly in the globalized market of the present day world.

MRC possesses an apparent vision of becoming a centre for academic and professional excellence that shapes entire educational practices of the entire nation with innovative ideas and insights. The outcomes of the institution will be ethically, professionally and academically excellent not only from the national but also from the international perspectives. Thus, our mission will be clearly to inspire the youths for dreaming a new innovative educational practice in Nepal, and for making the dreams true. MRC has also a mission to develop in students the technical expertise, educational administration abilities, teacher professional sensitivity, and many more.

In order to translate the vision and mission into the practice, MRC has conducted many different programs and attained progress in various aspects such as educational and physical development.
