Bhutan's First and Only A+ Accredited Institution      Inspiring Education in Bhutan

Royal Thimphu College is pleased to welcome Bhutanese students studying internationally who have returned to Bhutan due to the COVID-19 pandemic and may not be going back abroad in the near future, to continue your studies locally with RTC starting from August, 2020 on a temporary or permanent basis at local tuition rates.

You can choose to complete electives or study within your major subjects with us while you are at home in Bhutan. RTC has had the privilege to host over 400 international students for study-abroad from different parts of the world such as the USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, and several European countries: all international students have had their RTC credits successfully recognized at their home institutions. 

RTC will help liaise with your home university for fulfilling credit transfer requirements. We offer a wide range of undergraduate interdisciplinary programmes, with equally diverse faculty members from around the world. In areas of sufficient demand, RTC can also facilitate specific tailor-made courses within our areas of subject expertise to meet international requirements.

Students may also consider joining on a permanent basis (enroll as a transfer student to RTC towards a degree award). Our offices will guide you through the mapping of your prior credits onto the matching RTC programmes.

Your education should not have to stop due to the global pandemic - Come learn and be inspired at RTC!
