International Student Adventures -Introducing
Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management, Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal

Study, Explore, Make a Difference

Caledonia Education is proud to work with amazing educators around the world that welcome international students looking for diverse study experiences.

 One of the biggest challenges for graduates today, is the highly competitive job market for new entrants. Too many applicants with the same or similar degrees can only catch the notice of the recruiters by having an eye-catching CV. One of the ways to get that CV is to go and study in another country and get involved in community work whilst you are doing it. Just imagine telling a future employer that you lived, studied and contributed to society in Nepal for a year or two, or even more? It is possible and, in many cases, you can also get an internationally recognised degree at the same time!


Silver Mountain School of Hotel Management (SMSHM)
Trains hotel managers of the future in all aspects of the Hotel industry. Leave with a UK degree at Undergraduate or Master's level. SMSHM is located just a 5 minute walk from the British Embassy in central Kathmandu.

SMSHM students are called 'Silver Mountaineers'! They are trained in all hotel departments in order to understand the challenges that their staff will face in future. Students on placements go to the finest 5 star hotels in the Middle East, the Maldives, Thailand, USA and many other parts of the world.

'Pack for Purpose'-Students are involved in outreach activities to help lesser fortunate citizens. Students raise funds to purchase a huge range of learning and teaching materials for smaller schools in Nepal and then distribute to them. Everyone gets involved!

Fishtail Mountain School of Hospitality & Tourism Management - Pokhara, Nepal is the sister school of SMSHM and is located just a short drive away from the regional airport.


Fishtail Mountain students can study a range of Culinary Arts or Hotel management awards in conjunction with international universities. With its custom built Oenology suite, students taste and learn all about fine wines.

Pokhara - a top tourist destination with stunning lakes, soaring mountains and a favourable warm climate. No wonder so many students want to study in this lush paradise.
