Thames is a wonderful platform for students who are looking to learn new skills and adapt to the real world. One of the things that I admire most of Thames is the student life that helped me balance my life as a student and as a professional. The student-centric environment at Thames helped me start a student magazine, the Yearbook, and conduct many events and activities that helped me grow as a professional. Some of the faculty members at Thames are top-notch who are close to me as mentors and as friends and the level of support that I received from them was admirable for a raw individual I was just when I joined Thames. I believe Thames has prepared us to become a socially responsible citizen which also allowed me to start a social enterprise named Canopy Nepal to work in education for underprivileged children and to promote interactive learning in schools. Some of the courses and workshops that I was exposed to completely changed me as a person and the way I think and perceive things to which I am thankful even today.

If I had a chance, I would relive "Thames Life"! Be it the academic service, be it the faculty and the platform that the Thames provided in three years' time, I was gearing up to venture into the professional world.

"The School of Social Sciences, Thames International College really provided me with a holistic learning experience, whether it was understanding the governance system, volunteering for different non-profit organizations, or challenging the existing norms of society with critical thinking. I really believe the institution helped me grow into the woman I am today, by nudging me in the right direction and instilling in me a sense of constant and lifelong learning. I will always be a proud alumna to have been associated with such a distinctive institution."

2013 was the year when my journey at the Thames commenced. It was the turning point of my life. Back then, I was naïve, inquisitive and had the zeal to excel in my career. All these traits were fulfilled at the Thames. The teacher’s passion for what they do and the constant encouragement never made me look back and always strived to do better. Thames provided me with experiential learning, an incredible amount of resources, guidance and opened a golden gate to practice my educational ideal and passion. If you are looking for the same, I assure you, you are in the right place.

Thames has been home away from home for me with a very warm and friendly environment. I have never felt left out as they have always assisted and encouraged me to perform better at my studies. Their constant effort to bring more extracurricular activities has provided me with plenty of opportunity to build meaningful connections and network to support my work today. Thanks to their understanding and unbiased culture which has always made me feel deeply connected with Thames family.

Four years at Thames was a life changing experience that I will cherish forever. Learning opportunities at Thames was beyond just completion of academic credit hours. Distinctive events and activities offered by the college to polish and outshine the students on the process of developing career personally and professionally is commendable. Decision of perusing BBA at Thames proved to be a pool of opportunities where I could explore the process of learning globally. Various events like book talk, Thames day, May fair, language classes, workshop and guest lectures made outstanding remarks to create thrilling atmosphere for learning. I express my gratitude to the college, teachers and friends for being the part of my glorious year at Thames.

For me, The best thing about the Thames is its; open culture. The class timings were so flexible that I was able to start working early. This gave me an edge as I was able to gain crucial experience while I was attending college and by the time I reached the 8th semester I had already got a full-time job at Leapfrog. I liked the college's motto of self-learning and I found that there's so much you can learn beyond the classroom. The college never forced any ideas upon us but rather helped us make our own decisions. I enjoyed the diversified experience during my college years. Having students from different academics under the same space meant I was able to attend events related to social works or business or even go and listen to writers tell their stories. Book talks were one of my favorite things at Thames.. This helped me experience things beyond my field of study and made me see things differently.

Thames offers opportunities for learning beyond the regular classroom, which has definitely shaped my learning experience as an athlete in a way I never expected. Initially I had difficulties balancing my athletic career and studies but the unique learning environment of college guided me to take forward both aspects hand in hand. One of the main highlights of my college life was being able to form a women's basketball team and winning several tournaments. If you want an environment where you can grow exponentially in various aspects of your life then Thames is totally worth your consideration.

Thames brings an enormous opportunity of reflecting through art and my decision to step into Thames Theatre Club (TTC) completely changed my perception of theatre. I got the privilege to acknowledge myself as coordinator of TTC and an opportunity to perform various short plays and productions through the team. More to this, sharing the victory of our own Theatre Club by bagging the first position in Inter-College Drama Competition was surreal. The saying 'you never know until you try’ is exactly what I can sum up relating to art and culture Thames holds. Because at Thames, students dance their hearts out and feel the music that fuels the soul. If we were to live without creating boundaries for ourselves and start indulging in various art platforms that Thames offers, each one of us would become strong and independent graduates.

I have always been someone who likes to collect experience from everything as much as possible. I believe that Thames has given their students every opportunity to stand out and evolve as a person which was one of the main reasons why I joined Thames. I became part of everything I found interesting and joined three structured clubs along with other unstructured clubs as a general member. As I took responsibilities by myself the pressure of completing it was on but I didn’t regret any bits of it. I gave my shot and became one of the members of the yearbook team. Right now I’m an official member of the student council as President and I’m learning new things every day. We have our own unique mission in life that only we can do, so make the best out of it.

Being a differently abled person, my early days were never easy from changing schools to being nervous in front of strangers. Because of the situations that I encountered, I always felt incomplete inside my heart. As I was sorting out the colleges offering social work, I came across Thames and I was mesmerized by the way the team encouraged me and on top of that, offered me with the scholarship. This was one of the proudest moments of my life. My teachers and friends at Thames embraced me for who I am and gave me with a welcoming environment where I can move forward in my path to become a successful social worker.

Thames has a distinct academic curriculum unlike other institutions in Kathmandu. The institution not only focuses on academia, but also provides exploratory subjects consisting of drama, art, foreign language, technology, field trips et al. Therefore, apart from academics, I have a rich variety of related arts offerings to choose from. My involvement in the theatre club and the college magazine editorial team has prepared me to work as a team whereby I can foster my creativity and take in interesting perspectives. It has also helped me build my communication skills for my journalism major and apply that knowledge to future endeavors. The other exploratory opportunity that I got here is my trip to France for an intercultural experience. We visited Montpellier and Paris where we were enrolled in French class. It was interesting to see and be a part of the culture which gave me a new perspective.

Upon officially beginning my first semester at Thames, I was quite nervous as every first year student about this transition to a new academic life. The course taught me about online research and the proper way of writing a paper. In addition, athletics has always been a very big part of my life and I got engaged in playing basketball at Thames. Engaging in sport activity is something that I absolutely love about my campus life and it has really helped me learn interpersonal and social communication skills. I made a lot of good friends through basketball; whether they were on my team, the opposing team or fellow friends in the crowd. Achieving first position in basketball organized by Rotaract club of Thames during my first semester was the most memorable and competitive game I have played.

Joining Thames was never a doubt for me as I was drawn to the college environment and the events that were conducted here. During my four years at Thames, I believe I have participated in almost all of the events. My personal favorite has to be diversity day. Tantamount to my interest to meet and connect with people, I joined the Rotaract club and I was able to contribute to many of the club’s events and activities. I was also part of the Kriye team through which I was able to showcase the creative side in me through various events. I am glad that I got the opportunity to choreograph “Sanskriti :the Fashion show” which was a completely different experience for me and my team . In addition, I also got to work as an intern in college which was a great learning experience for me. All and all, I would say that my #lifeatthames was pretty amazing.

Having taken a gap year, I was nervous about starting my undergrad in Nepal. After studying A-Levels, I had gotten used to this flexibility when it came to education and extracurricular. And Thames offered me a similar academic environment with a course of international standards. All of my teachers and the management itself have been extremely supportive and eager to provide any assistance. I also became the coordinator of the Kriye Team during the first semester and got involved in organizing different events .The college has been doing its best to promote a lot of social causes and inspire students to learn new skills by hosting various workshops. After a semester at Thames, I realize that my potential and interests have been recognized and taken into consideration; I know that I will most certainly experience and enjoy all that the institution has to offer.

When I joined Thames I was a shy, nerdy guy who lived mostly in books in my room. I didn't know much about life outside the classroom. But after engaging in programs from the Student Council of Thames International College (SCOTIC) my perception towards college life changed. SCOTIC was about enriching student life. To learn, I begrudgingly started staying after classes to work on events which helped enrich student life. For every event, we would plan months ahead, find sponsors, performers, practice, decorate on holidays. The responsibilities of handling a huge budget and team was definitely not easy but the appreciation from teachers and friends made it worthwhile.

I feel privileged to be associated with Thames International College –a progressive institution committed to the profession of Social Work. Thames puts its students at the center of all its activities –thorough preparation of the syllabus and class engagement; a transparent evaluation system; a myriad of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities; outstanding full time faculty and adjunct faculty members who are leading practitioners in their field; professional development opportunities for both students and faculty, to name a few. Based on my exposure to Social Work education in India, Europe and the United States, I can confidently say that Thames is a great choice for Social Work students who want to be leaders in the profession.

It is a matter of great privilege for me to be part of the faculty at Thames InternationalCollege. As a faculty of sociology for more than a year, the educational environment, Ifind, is quite liberal and conducive to explore and experiment with teaching and learning activities, mutually helpful for both teachers and students. Thames provides a wonderful opportunity for students to critically engage with various aspects of society, social differences, and the dynamics that shape human social life. Students not only obtain degrees but are oriented to understand theoretical and practical knowledge and critically understand the social processes that shape their lives. They get an opportunity to think about how they are not merely passive receivers of knowledge but also active agents in contributing to the shaping society around them.
