International Relation’s Directorate

International Relations Directorate

Lumbini Buddhist University has established extensive academic and professional relationship with universities and colleges overseas, exploring opportunities for mutually beneficial collaboration in education, research, and cultural exchange. The Directorate for International Relations establishes and enhances collaborative relationship and cooperation with selected educational institutions around the world, promoting mutual exchange of ideas and skills and enhancing academic excellence. The Directorate plays an essential role in organizing exchange programs, monitoring and evaluating international projects that are run under different Faculties and Schools, and providing necessary assistance to new initiatives in the area of international engagements. It will assist international students and faculty members, within the framework of exchange programs, by arranging their placement, providing necessary academic information, and helping with social and cultural aspects of internationalization.

LBU is carrying out ongoing consultations with various universities of international reputation to establish joint framework for academic cooperation and research activities in the near future. The University is actively involved in creating partnerships with institutions abroad through formal memoranda of understanding. It is also creating opportunities for intellectuals in the large Nepali diaspora around the world to contribute to LBU in the areas of research, teaching, and service. Scholars of other national origin who are interested in Nepal and Buddhist art, culture, literature and philosophy are also being invited to explore opportunities for collaboration and partnerships. Interested institutions, their units, and scholars are encouraged to contact us for potential opportunities.

LBU aims at becoming a research hub for study and research for international scholars and students in Nepal, as well as connecting Nepalese students and scholars with their counterparts around the world in the field of Buddhism and others.

International students are welcome to join the academic programs of LBU either by enrolling on their own or through exchange programs in their institutions. International students will receive the necessary guidance and support from the LBU Directorate for International Relations.

International students can join regular courses and conduct research activities as partial fulfillment foreseen by their own universities. Thanks to adoption of the semester system based curriculum and credit hours scheme by LBU, students will be able to earn credits and receive certificates for their academic achievements. LBU academic staff will offer them support and assistance and will facilitate them to explore the rich social, cultural and linguistic diversities existing in Nepal.
