Mid-Western University (MWU)

Mid-Western University (MWU) is an autonomous and public institution of higher learning with the mission to serve the people of Nepal and enrich the global learning community by extending the advantages of higher education.

Established by the Government of Nepal with a Parliament Act on June 17, 2010 A. D. under the concept of multi-university system, Mid-Western University is a state supported institution, founded on land donated by the Government of Nepal. The constituent campuses of the University and the Central Administration Office are located in Birendranagar Municipality, in the District of Surkhet, Nepal.

Although Mid-Western University is still in the making and has a long way to go before becoming fully operative, the University gathers a tremendous political support from the existing parties and above all enjoys wide enthusiastic participation and support of the local people. The establishment of Mid-Western University represents the fulfillment of a cherished dream of the people of this area, who particularly showed applaud able example through their contribution to a fundraising program geared up for the establishment of this University.

Moreover, the University also enjoys a strong support from the existing campuses throughout the region: land, property, human resource, and students of the existing Tribhuvan University’s affiliated campuses in the region have been merged under this University.

Aware of these extraordinary and propitious circumstances, the University aims at promoting the advancement of learning and dissemination of knowledge for the overall welfare of the nation.

During the years of study with a variety of dedicated lecturers and researchers, the University aims at helping students to enhance their capacity, promote holistic development of their abilities and personality and bringing them to a deeper understanding of their future role in the society.

The University, in the long run, is dedicated to become a Centre of Academic Excellence in learning, teaching and research. Its primary goal is to set up a culture of learning in the country and to extend and spread the benefits of knowledge by providing access to the overall community at large. The University also aims at establishing a community of scholars, students and staff in which understanding and wisdom can expand and flourish

Responsive to the particular social and economic context of Nepal as well as the requirements of the international standards in higher education, the University tries to implement academic programs and in-service courses that cater to these needs. Guided by the view to provide quality and job oriented education to the students and link the University system with the community services, programs and courses offered by MU are designed to meet these requirements and standards in every possible area. Academic programs are developed in consultation with civic, educational and business leaders of the community, as well as the appropriate Ministries of the Nepal Government.

These guidelines have been developed in order to support Mid-Western University departments and programs that seek to establish meaningful institution-to-institution relationships for the benefit of Mid-Western University students, faculty, and staff.

Types of agreements may include (but are not restricted to) student exchange, faculty/scholar/staff exchanges, research collaboration, materials exchanges (such as library materials), training and technical assistance, and dual and joint degree programs. When several agreements exist with the same institution, when an agreement with an institution is regularly renewed and comes to represent an ongoing partnership, or in certain other circumstances, it may be necessary or expedient to develop a general International Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the partner institution.

Because an International Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and other forms of international agreements are binding, legal contracts, it is very important that each new formal agreement be entered into with the utmost seriousness and care. Individuals who are not currently employed by Mid-Western University may not initiate or be designated as the primary contact for an IMOU or other form of international Agreement. The International Relations Directorate reviews each proposed Agreement, and the Vice-Chancellor signs each new Agreement and renewal. Depending on the type of agreement, the relevant Dean(s), University Council, and/or the Campus Chief may also need to review and approve of the document.


The General Administration Office (GAO) oversees the overall administration system and offices of the University and is concerned with all non-financial matters pertaining to the academic staff and employees. It also determines criteria and procedures for evaluating their requests and applications. The Office is responsible for safeguarding and facilitating the implementation of the administrative rules and regulations of the University, as well as for their enforcement. It also keeps and stores the records of all University employees and constantly updates it.

Mr. Purna Bahadur B.C. is the Chief of the General Administration Office.
