The campaign "Merging NepSocs" started in October 2017 to bring together all the undergraduates, postgraduates and young professionals from the Nepalese diaspora in the UK. Through our action-based professional and academic Nepalese network we aspire to offer social mobility - helping Nepalese communities in the UK move up the social ladder- through programmes like mentoring schemes!
In order to help Nepalese societies to mobilizes, we have carefully selected some projects as follows:
Support and Guidance for UCAS application, internship & graduate scheme programs.
Professional and Academic Nepalese network i.e. Nepalese LinkedIn
Publication of creative writings, researches & current affairs surrounding NepSocs
Social Action Projects
Take responsibility & leadership of projects that affect Nepalese-British relationship.
Volunteering in Nepal
Mobilize the teams of skilled volunteers to execute projects in remote areas of Nepal. projects include health camps, IT training etc.
Hi, I am Ash Thapa and currently in my final year of pursuing a degree in Economics at University of Leicester (UoL). I generally spend time participating in small events where I play a little bit of guitar and I also enjoy playing badminton. Being quite of a patriot, I felt the need to open a Nepalese Society at my university where I met many new students from different parts of the UK. Being the founding President of the Nepalese Society at UoL, I also got the opportunity to be one of the campaigners of ‘Merging NepSocs’. Ever since the initial meeting with the presence of 13 universities at Birmingham, I have fully supported the movement and the vision – now consisting of over 50 universities (societies).
The journey with the campaigners and the members has been nothing but amazing. My most memorable moment has to the Talent Show for numerous reasons, which took place in Wolverhampton on 24th of March. With over 350 attendees, this special day did not only symbolise competitiveness but also togetherness and a sense of belonging.
Perhaps, there is no losing but only learning, or perhaps there is no failure but only an opportunity.
This is what I have learnt! I am Ronish - an international student studying MSc Project Management at University of Winchester. In spite of being a Nepalese-Bruneian, I was keen to learn more about my home culture and lifestyle of Nepalese in the UK.
Having spent two beautiful years in the UK, I learnt that there are various genres with immersive opportunities waiting for us Nepalese to grow onto. Perchance this had motivated me to launch a new society at my University called the ‘WINNS’- Winchester Nepalese Society which not only facilitated collaboration of creativity within my university but also encouraged universities within the region (Winchester, Solent and Southampton University) to grow together. The art of collaboration and determination of growth seeked my attention towards “Merging NepSoc”. From assimilation of 3 universities to merging more than 50 universities was a big jump yet a fruitful experience. Excitement emerged from our first meeting and arose continuously with every other meeting and events such as The Merging NepSoc Talent show.
I am looking forward to share my experience and exchange knowledge through mentoring scheme and networking platform to explore our opportunities together!
I feel proud to be involved on the campaign as a campaigner and look forward to the upcoming Merging NepSocs Summer Ball.
