As per the Indian treaty with the Nepal and Bhutan and many other similar countries, you don't need VISA to visit the country. Also in order to work their officially you'd need some declaration document. However there is nothing that can stop you from taking education and job. There is also treaty provision that protects your right in both countries on social and civil level. You wont be able to vote and acquire properties unless you get the citizenship. You can go ahead and apply to the universities or the job in nepal. And they should process the application like any other candidate in the country.
