British College of Applied Studies (BCAS) has in its curriculum proven Foundation Studies courses which provide alternative fast track pathways for students to pursue degrees of their choice, making real their dream of obtaining Degrees of global acceptance in Science or Engineering. BCAS provides Foundation Courses in Science and Engineering for students who complete O/Ls making them to master all subjects without the need to sit A/Ls and be eligible to enroll for BTEC HND courses at BCAS which is equivalent to the first 2 years of a UK degree at the BCAS Campus, retaining the option of completing the final year at BCAS or in the foreign university. BCAS is a Sri Lankan Institute of Higher Learning providing applied courses of study at affordable cost to Sri Lankan and overseas students.
