Far-western University (FWU) was established in 2010 AD by the Act of Parliament. Nevertheless, the university obtained approval of its rules and regulations, programs and budget from the first historic senate meeting held on September 21, 2012.
The university has prepared its five-year strategic plan and it is in the process of preparing a long term plan in consultation with the stakeholders of the region and beyond. FWU has launched undergraduate and graduate programs in different subjects under the faculties of management, education, humanities and social sciences, engineering and science and technology at Central Campus of FWU. The university also has launched B.Sc. Agriculture porgram in Tikapur Multiple Campus, Tikapur, Kailali under the faculty of Agriculture Science. All the undergraduate programs of this university are of four- year duration (8 semester) under the semester system except for the BBS program which still follows the yearly system. The graduate/masters programs are also running in two-years (4 semester) under the semester system.
In 2018 FWU has established its 14 constituent campuses in the nine districts of Farwestern Region. We will further explore the possibility of expanding its programs and faculties in all the provinces of the country and beyond. Academic relationship will also be established with the universities of home and abroad in the coming days.
To achieve the vision, mission and the goals of the university, as the need of the country and international market, we provide international level syllabus, practical labs, library and trying our best to fulfill all the necessary educational values. By these attempts, our students will be qualitative, competitive, creative, self-confident and they will have the confidence to achieve the goals of their life.
I wish all the best.
