Why study in Sri Lanka

In her quest for education excellence, Sri Lanka has the ability to offer all international students a peaceful and friendly environment; an established education system; accredited and high quality programmes; low cost of living and tuition fees. You can be assured of heading home with more than just a tertiary qualification.

Listed below are some of the valid reasons as to why Sri Lanka should be your ultimate and preferred destination for your pursuit of education abroad:

 
International Degree Qualifications at Cheaper Tuition Fees
Sri Lanka is acknowledged as one of the best educational programmes. Unique collaborative degree programmes such as twinning degrees (for example: 2 years in Sri Lanka and 1 year in overseas host university) and 3+0 international degrees (where the entire foreign university degree programme is taught in Sri Lanka ) are offered to local and international students at cheaper tuition fees based on the Sri Lankan Rupees as compared to the more expensive currencies from countries like the United Kingdom, USA and Australia.
 
Twinning Degree Programme

Leading Sri Lankan Higher Education Institutes offer undergraduate ‘2+1’ twinning degree programme which is offered at an affordable cost.

The Twinning Degree arrangement with reputable international universities from overseas countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, is the hall-mark of ‘Study in Sri Lanka ’ which has helped many local and international students studying in Sri Lanka save substantial cost in their pursuit for internationally recognised Bachelor’s degree programmes..

For example, if you enroll in Sri Lanka for an Engineering Twinning Degree Programme that offers three years of study in Sri Lanka with the last one year in Australia (3+1Twinning), you will save up to AUD 50,000 in tuition fees and living costs if you were to do the entire 4 years degree in Australia!

3 + 0’ Bachelor’s Degree from Foreign Leading Universities

Many Sri Lankan private institutions of higher learning have gained confidence and trust from universities in countries like the United Kingdom, Australia and United States to allow these local private educational institutions to offer complete foreign university degree programmes (from the partner universities) in Sri Lanka. The qualification from these programmes will be awarded by the partner universities. Therefore, these quality-assured foreign degree qualifications (3+0) can be acquired at much reduced education cost in Sri Lanka.

A 3+0 programme is an extension of a twinning programme. The 3+0 programme allows students to complete the entire foreign degree programme right here in Sri Lanka, and still be conferred with a degree from the partner university overseas. The tuition fee of a 3-year UK Engineering Degree is about USD12,000.

Foreign University Branch Campuses in Sri Lanka
 
Since 2000, 5 international reputable universities have set up their branch campuses in Sri Lanka and offered their own courses to students (both local and international) in order that these students can acquire identical university qualifications at a lower education cost in Sri Lanka. For example, the tuition fee of a 3-year UK Engineering Degree is priced at about USD 24,500.
Full Credit Transfer System
Full Flexibility Most of the Universities have Partnerships and / or collaborations with various other very good and reputed Universities all over the world and a few of these are even IVY-LEAGUE universities such as MIT and Stanford of the US.
One can transfer ones academic credits fully to a partner University if one wishes to shift to that particular Partner University at any given time. Hence offering great flexibility to the students who want to go to other Universities midway of there course or for higher studies after finishing one particular course.
Low Living Cost
The cost of living for international students to study in Sri Lanka could be as low as approximately US$2,500 per annum (the cost of living in the city is about 10% higher). As such, the low living cost besides the cheaper tuition fee would appeal to both international and local students in terms of great savings of living expenses while studying in Sri Lanka.
 
Accommodation
There are off-campus accommodations at reasonable rate, for international students as well as out-of-town local students. These different accommodations which include Houses on rent, apartments, link-houses and condominiums equipped with full facilities, are designed to suit the student’s budget and lifestyle. Many of these places are also located within reasonable distance to the institutions.
Quality of Education monitored by Department of Higher Education
Sri Lankan Private Higher Educational Institutions offer world standard and high quality education that are internationally recognized. The courses offered here are benchmarked against international standards, meeting the standard criteria and stringent requirements set by authorities.
Dedicated Academic Staff with Diversified Global Qualifications
The academic staff here are dedicated and possess globally-recognized qualifications and extensive teaching experience at the tertiary level. Most of them graduated from recognized universities from countries such as the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand and Germany.
English is the Medium of Instruction for All Study Programmes Conducted

English is used as the primary medium of instruction for all courses and study programmes conducted at the private higher educational institutions.

Sri Lanka being a multi-ethnic country has elaborate experience in using effective methodologies to teach the English language to non-English natives. Therefore, Sri Lanka makes an ideal place for international students from non-English speaking countries to learn English.

Politically Sound and Geographically Safe Country

Sri Lanka is a politically and socially secure country that is governed by a stable government with safety measures incorporated in the laws of the country. The tropical climate is warm and humid throughout the year without any drastic weather changes. Sri Lanka is also geographically safe from major natural disasters as it is located in a natural catastrophe-free zone.
As such, from the political, geographical, social and economical point, Sri Lanaka is a very suitable place for students, especially international students to study and live in.
