Purpose: The purpose of this research study is to analyze how globalization and the English language have affected higher education in Nepal today. Higher education is regarded as the primary foundational element for a nation’s progress. Globalization and higher education, however, are currently at the forefront of higher education. Today, kids are forced to learn in English since they are unable to do it in their native tongue. They are given no other option but to continue studying in English. Design/Methodology/Approach: This research study used a qualitative approach. For this study, materials about higher education, English as a world language, and globalization have been reviewed, and the effects are described in a language without the use of any quantitative techniques. Findings: Globalization and the English language have an impact on higher education in Nepal since students are not free to discontinue their studies in English. English has been successful in eradicating our native tongue, which has had a significant impact on local identity. The students who struggle with the English language cannot finish their studies and must travel to the Gulf States to work as labourers. Due to this circumstance, Nepal now has more social and economic disparity. Research Limitations: Focus groups and interviews were not used in this study. Additionally, the discussion and analysis of the conclusions are based solely on reviews and dense language. Managerial Implications: This study includes a review of related literature for further study. As a result, it has conducted additional document analysis. Originality/Value: There is no writing that has been plagiarized in this study. All authors who were evaluated received credit and value.
