No Objection Certificate (NOC) Nepal for Study Abroad Students


What is a NOC?

As a student planning to study abroad, you may have come across the term NOC (No Objection Certificate).

The NOC Nepal serves as proof that the student has fulfilled all the necessary requirements and obtained the approval of the relevant authorities to study abroad.

Why do you need a NOC?

Getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) means you have official permission from the government of Nepal to study in another country.
