Since the establishment of the Royal University of Bhutan in 2003 through the amalgamation of tertiary education offered from various locations across the country, the first priority for the academic programme was either to adopt the existing programmes after fulfilling quality assurance of programme development as prescribed under the Royal University of Bhutan, or to initiate development of new award bearing programmes after subjecting to academic screening processes something similar to GNHC screening tools. Through the years, several programmes are adopted and validated, reviewed internally and also through engagement of external examiners and consultants. Some award programmes have become obsolete in context to present need assessments and have discontinued while relevant programmes continue to be offered. At the same time, new programmes are developed and introduced.(Click here for details)
