  1. Guys, There are quite a few Nepalese students undertaking Fashion Designing Courses in the U.K. Can anyone tell me if anyone has got a job in the relevant field? Deven
  2. Today on BBC UK taxpayers should subsidise overseas students who want to study here, a higher education body is arguing. The Higher Education Policy Institute (Hepi) says high fees might put off foreign students, who bring economic benefits to the country. Non-EU students pay much higher tuition fees than British students, although EU students pay the same. The government says the current system works well and it has no plans to change it: universities set their fees. A report from Hepi says the economic benefits of attracting more students far outweighs the cost. This is because students pay fees and spend money on food and rent. Once they have graduated, they might work in the UK and pay taxes here, the report says. International students from non-EU countries pay at least £3.3bn a year on tuition fees and living expenses, the researchers estimate. And even if every EU student refused to pay back the UK government loans they are entitled to receive for tuition fees, the economy would still benefit, the report said. "It is clear that it is well worth maximising the number of both EU and non-EU international students, it said. "Even if there were no other benefit, both groups provide substantially more, financially, than they consume." Cultural benefits The authors warn that international students might be put off from coming to Britain by the fees, when countries such as Germany offer free education. Higher education minister Bill Rammell said there were no plans to change the system. "We have a world class system of higher education which is attractive to overseas students who not only make a valuable financial contribution to the UK higher education sector and economy but also bring other cultural, research, trade and diplomatic and benefits. "Institutions are free to set their own fee rates for overseas' students. The demand for places from domestic students exceeds supply - with more funding, our priority would be to create room for them rather than subsidise those from overseas." http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/education/6295216.stm

  4. I do not think India can unilaterally decide to build a hydel plant in breach of international law. Obviously, if there is a potential threat, such a threat should be dealt with. India is in desperate need of energy and so are Nepal and many other countries. The important thing is - What is Nepal (govt) doing? Obviously the DPR will assess environmental impact and several other issues. But, bigbrother is always in winning side. I think Nepal should learn a lesson from this and try to build potential plants that Nepal boosts on. Constructing Hydel Plant involves money and lots of manpower, but there are enough skilled and unskilled manpower to build such plants. Why not to utilise what we have now. There is so much liquidity of money in Nepal that at least building 1,000 MW power plant should be a viable option. In particular, skilled manpower within the Army and Maoist ranks could be used. There are several hydel construction companies in Nepal with skilled manpower and experience in international standards. We got to do something. Deven

  10. London Chhalphal & Britain Nepal Academic Council present two films on subjects close to Nepal's heart -- Border Encroachment and Girls Trafficking Film 1: Greater Nepal – In Quest of Boundary (100 minutes, English subtitles), 1pm – 3:30pm, including a Q&A session with the Director, Manoj Pandit This film is being screened to mark the anniversary of the Sugauli Treaty signed on 2nd December 1815 AD. Filmmaker Manoj Pandit has gone back some 200 years to a time when Nepal ’s boundaries extended to the Tista in the east and the Sutlej in the west. The background to the film is the Anglo-Nepal war that occurred in 1814-15 A. D. and which resulted in the Treaty of Sugauli. As a result, Nepal had to lose more than a third of its territory to the East India Company. This documentary is an attempt to: * present evidence to support the contention that Nepal has legal rights over the lost territory (The first part is the filmmaker’s journey to historical places like Nalapani, Malaun and Kangada) * show the places where border encroachments have happened and how people living in the borders are being affected. (The second part shows the filmmaker’s journey from Mechi to Kalapani) More information about this film can be found at: www.greaternepal.com Film 2: The Day My God Died (65 minutes, English), 3:30pm-5pm, Director: Andrew Levine The Day My God Died is an Emmy-nominated documentary that presents the stories of young girls whose lives have been shattered by the child sex trade. They describe the day they were abducted from their village and sold into sexual servitude as "the day my God died." The film provides actual footage from the brothels of Bombay captured with "spy camera" technology. It weaves the stories of girls, and their stolen hopes and dreams, into an unforgettable examination of the growing plague of child sex slavery. The film also introduces us to the heroes of the movement to abolish child sex slavery - non-profit organizations such as Maiti Nepal which rescue and care for former sex slaves. Narrated by Winona Ryder and Tim Robbins, The Day My God Died documents the tragedy of child sexual slavery and profiles the courageous abolitionists that need our support. More information about this film can be found at http://www.thedaymygoddied.com Date: 2nd December 2006, Saturday, 1pm – 5pm Location: SOAS Vernon Square campus, Room V211 (off Penton Rise, near King’s Cross and Angel tube stations) Location Map (Please Note: this is NOT the central SOAS campus near Russell Square ) Entry: FREE
