Formal higher learning in Nepal began with the establishment of Tri-Chandra College in 1918(1975 BS), the first college in the country. Until 1985, Tribhuvan University was the only university in the country. The second university to be founded was Mahendra Sanskrit University. The inception of this university was soon followed by Kathmandu University in 1990, and Purbanchal and Pokhara Universities in 1995 and 1996, respectively. Many schools and colleges are run privately but none of the universities in Nepal are private.

This list includes all notable universities in Nepal.
