4 years Bachelor in Fine Arts at LalitKala Campus, Kathmandu, Nepal | BFA – Tribhuvan University

Tribhuvan University – Kathmandu is one of the world’s largest universities in terms of number of students. The university complex located in Kirtipur (5 minutes drive SW from Kathmandu) and the constituent campuses and affiliated campuses located across the country accommodate almost 95 percent of university aspirants of Nepal.

LalitKala Campus is one of the constituent campuses of Tribhuvan University. It is located in Bhotahity (2 minutes walk NW from Ratnapark, now called Sankhadhar Park) at the heart of city. The campus building looks that it is fragile. Yet it is strong. (UPDATE: July 22, 2021 – We have found that the campus is being reconstructed and the construction work is being completed.) The number of students play an important role in infrastructure development of the campuses/universities. However, the faculty team are well experienced and dedicated people who have capacity to lead the aspirants to achieve the capacity to do something innovative in fine art sector that is handy in positive change in the world society.

Lalitkala Campus (Campus of Fine Arts), a public campus under Tribhuvan University, published an advert today in Kantipur Daily. The advert was about call for new applications from prospective students for 4 years Bachelors Degree in Fine Art for following specialisations:

  1. artwork/portraiture

I have written this piece of blog because an idea came in my mind that Fine Arts play important role in transformation of society. Many potentials are there in Nepal and the world who have capacity to do something innovative for the society through fine art. I know a friend of mine who was studying B.Sc in Environment Sciences and Fine Art in parallel; and of course he is multi-talented.
