Michelle Welsch Delivered a Guest Lecture on American Higher Education

TU-PNC, 3 April 2016: Michelle Welsch delivered a guest lecture on American Higher Education at the Dept of English, Prithvi Narayan Campus, Pokhara this morning.

Michelle is currently working as a researcher, an English teacher, an entrepreneur and a social worker in Pokhara. She runs a project called “Learning House: An Education Center in Nepal.” The Center is located in Samsung Galli in Pokhara and its aim is to build a learning center that promotes education, leadership and community in Nepal.  

Speaking about the problems faced by Nepali students who want to study in the US universities, she said, “The decision to study abroad is an exciting one, but it can be difficult and stressful. Talk carefully with your family to determine what is best for you.” “Once you have an idea of the program you'd like to enter, start to research different programs. Some schools offer international students extra classes and can be great alternatives to larger, more expensive universities. Ask friends to learn about their experiences and what has worked for them,” she added.

The master’s students at the Department of English participated in the lecture. Her presentation was followed by an interaction with the students. She was also accompanied by her colleagues from the Learning House who also assisted her during her presentation.

The guest lecture was moderated and coordinated by Dr. Min Pun, an Associate Professor at the Department of English who teaches Nepal Studies to MA Second Year students.
