Hey, Its Go_Kool from Bhairahawa… I just completed plus 2 in science. My brothers want me to study MBBS but I am not much interested because I don’t think I can compete in the tough competition and it is too expensive to study by paying. I have searched the internet about which course is good in these days. I don’t have any interest or inclination to any subjects. hune vaye ta ma padne nai thena. But among many courses of science, I liked agriculture course. can anyone tell me everything about the agriculture courses that are conducted in Nepal. I heard there are currently Bsc.Ag and Agro-Tech in Nepal. What is the basic difference between these two? and is it difficult to complete these courses. I dont have any friends or relativesstudying agriculture so I couldnot get more information. Internet ma ekdum broad ma matra vete. So anyone studying or know about agriculture education please help me. Also, how are the chances and scopes to go abroad after completing bachelors?Deleted User replied 2 years, 6 months ago 15 Members · 17 Replies

Though I am studying Engineering brother If you are interested in agriculture than go for it. The scope of agriculture is increasing at an enormous rate day by day. You can go abroad after studying agriculture in Nepal. The best agricultural campus in Nepal is Rampur Agriculture Campus Chitwan. You can study there in scholarship just you have to study hard for entrance examination and pass it out.

Thanks Aqua Touch for the reply. After lots of research I finally decided to study Bsc Agriculture in Amritsar, India as the deadline for admissions in Nepali colleges that run Agriculture course passed.The total cost to study Bsc Agriculture (bsc Ag) in India (Amritsar) is about 5 lakhs IC with food and accommodation. in I am really happy that I joined the agriculture course. My little research about the agriculture course showed that the demand of agriculture literates and technicians is increasing in a great pace all around the world. The scope of agriculture in Nepal is also increasing day by day. Also, after visiting the college and talking with some teachers I am really excited to move my career ahead in the field of Agriculture along with studies. I recommend students to join a good agriculture college in Nepal as well as India or abroad if they are really inclined towards this filled. I was in so much dilemma whether to study agriculture or not after completing plus 2 in science. And I know it happens to all. Students who are willing to study Agriculture in India can contact me by private message if you want to know more about agriculture course, how to get admission in agriculture, requirements for admission in Bsc Ag, dates, fees and more.

Students studying plus 2 in science always be confuse for one time for what to study after plus 2 as there are many ways many courses to study after passing +2 in science. Many ways opens after studying science and future demanding course related to science are also very expensive in Nepal. Although many students pays expensive donations to study such course which not easy to pay for middle class students so they study hard to compete therefore, the competition after studying science is very difficult for courses like MBBS, B.Sc Nursing, BHA, BMLT, Bachelors in Engineering etc. through government affiliation. Among these subjects or courses B.Sc Agriculture is also one of the important course to study in Nepal because there are only few peoples who pass out and are available to do governmental jobs in Nepal and many places of Nepal.
In Nepal, There are only few colleges that are fully working on providing Agricultural courses for Nepalese students. But by some years there is a difficult competition among students to study B.Sc Agriculture in Nepal. All around Nepal in Chitwan, Kaathmandu, Dang, Biratanagar B.Sc Agriculture courses are available. But the entrance preparation classes offered by institutes for B.Sc Agriculture are available in every major cites of Nepal like Butwal, Pokhara, Kathmandu, Dharan, Birgunj, Biratnagar, Hetauda, Dhangadi etc. which are helpful for taking entrance examination of B.Sc Agriculture to win the competition and getting admission as there are limited seats only to study B.Sc Agriculture. If students get seats on paying also it is not very costly to pay 4 years course fee at is about from 4 lakh to 4.5 lakh Nepal which i not easy but not so much difficult to pay.
In Nepal, there is a huge scope of B.Sc Agriculture as well as in foreign countries like Poland, USA, Canada etc. After graduation in B.Sc Agriculture students can get platforms to develop their career in own country Nepal by working as governmental administrative in different places of Nepal. In abroad also there is a huge scope of agriculture you can have very attractive earning and new technology of agriculture can also be learned.

Can you guys please tell me Which is the best course you think between Ayurveda, agriculture and forestry looking at salary scale and future prospects in Nepal?
MemberMarch 24, 2016 at 1:02 pm
They all are different courses Niroj brother. All courses ayurveda, agriculture and forestry have a nice scope in Nepal. The scope of these courses will increase looking at the trend and global awareness increasing in Ayurvedic treatment procedures, agriculture development and increasing concerns towards forests and related thing. Being more specific to your question I think Ayurveda course will have more scope in near future and the salary scale will also be highest among these three courses in Nepal. JMO

As we all know that Nepal is an agricultural country, the scope of Agriculture is very high in Nepal. Many people of Nepal depend on the agriculture for their living. If you are interested in Agriculture then it is a very good course to study in the context of Nepal. If the science students can get involved in agriculture, we can develop agriculture to a great extent and also help in the development of the country. After the completion of the course, you can work as an agricultural officer, technician, agro expert, field officer, supervisor, laboratory specialist, etc. You can also get involved in research and NGOs/INGOs. You can also specialize in different branches of agriculture like forestry, horticulture, fish farming, poultry farming, animal science, etc. It has a broad spectrum for specialization as well.
