VHS Bhaktapur is a German language school, ÖSD-examination center and innovative education hub hidden away in beautiful Bhaktapur (with another branch in Kathmandu).
We work closely together in a multicultural team to not only teach German language and the culture of Germany, Austria and Switzerland to our students, but we use innovative and practically oriented educational methods. We want to create the rich soil in which new ideas and projects can grow and flourish, and we want to give our young students the tools which they need to take responsibility for their own learning. This way, we hope to reduce unemployment and create new perspectives.
On these pages, you can read more about our various projects in the education sector, about our German classes and examinations, you can find information on our volunteer- and internship programs and the popular Cultural Introduction Seminar for Non-Nepalis, you can meet the team and check up on our exciting and fun Friday Events and other upcoming stuff.
VHS (Volkshochschule = community learning center) was established in 2011 as a German language school and learning center in Nepal. Our main branch is located in Bhaktapur, but since 2015 we also have a branch in Kathmandu (Putalisadak). Students get the chance to learn German from A1 to B2 and take certified language exams. As official ÖSD examination center we can also offer seats to external students.
Additionally, VHS offers a volunteer program and internships for foreign applicants in order to further the intercultural exchange between Nepal and German-speaking countries. We also try our best to create opportunities in the Nepali job market and educational field for Nepalis and take part in several social and educational projects. Among our partners are ErasmusPlus and the European Union.
VHS Bhaktapur is a non-profit organisation.
