 Some 257 students joined the teacher training colleges of Samtse and Paro a semester ahead of the rest of the colleges in Bhutan’s university system.

Of the total, 126 were men and 131 women. 173 students opted for Bachelor in Education

Gyeltshen, a first year B.Ed. student, said he was surprised when he was told that has to report on of March 19. Rest of the colleges of Royal University of Bhutan begins only from July.

“Why the difference, I do not know,” said Gyeltshen. Namgay, another B.Ed student, said that it is strange how rules do not apply uniformly.

“But having come to the college and imbibed the ways, I have become way more responsible than I was,” he said. “Here, we are trained to be the role models.”

Som Gurung, the Dean of Academic Affairs, said the trainee teachers had to report early to coincide with the start of schools in the country. “Since schools around the country start in February, it was decided that teachers should complete their course by the autumn semester. It’s all about synchronicity in the system.”
