Welcome to Herald College Kathmandu (HCK)
Herald College Kathmandu (HCK) is a direct affiliation with University of Wolverhampton. The objective of this partnership is to provide internationally recognised tertiary education at affordable prices. HCK offers the BA (Hons) International Business Management and BSc (Hons) in Computer Science qualification from the University of Wolverhampton (WLV) based on a 3+1 model, whereby HCK students would first take iAcademy’s University Foundation Certification, followed by their Diploma in Business Administration or Diploma in Computing, and then their Advanced Diploma in Business Administration or Advanced Diploma in Computing. All of the iAcademy’s qualifications have been articulated with advanced standing into the University of Wolverhampton’s BA (Hons) International Business Management degree and BSc (Hons) in Computer Science qualification. Hence, students who successfully complete iAcademy’s Advanced Diploma in Business Administration or Advanced Diploma in Computing would enter the University of Wolverhampton’s BA (Hons) International Business Management and BSc (Hons) in Computer Science programme in the final year of that programme.

The University of Wolverhampton has a long and cherished history dating back to Wolverhampton’s Mechanics’ Institute and College of Art in the mid-1800s. In time, teacher training colleges and colleges of health were incorporated, all of which helped to develop the university’s rich heritage and a tradition of academic excellence in vocational higher education. The university’s coat of arms carried the motto: ‘Innovation and Opportunity’ – something which is as true today as all those years ago. The University is now a leading university and a major player in the UK higher education sector, contributing to knowledge transfer, economic development, wealth creating and social justice Times may have changed but the University’s ethos have not, they remain a beacon for widening participation in education. They remain The University of Opportunity.
