Why should that heading be of interest to someone who has completed their A/L’s? Haven’t British Degrees been available in Sri Lanka before? Why is this special? These are all valid questions. Kingston University and ESOFT Metro Campus partnered more than 5 years ago to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of the Sri Lankan youth as well as their parents. All parents want to see their children well educated. But financing and affordability and availability are burning issues. Kingston University London is a public research university located in South West London, United Kingdom. Though its roots go back to 1899, Kingston University has established itself as a modern university specialised in arts, design, fashion, science, engineering, and business.
The university has five faculties over four campuses with a student population of nearly 20000. The growing global reputation, the pioneering research being undertaken and international partnerships have placed the Kingston university in the 58th position in the UK, based on the latest Guardian University Guide Rankings for 2019. This makes Kingston University one of the highest ranked UK universities to operate in Sri Lanka. The courses on offer are underpinned by the latest technologies, strengthened by active collaborations with industry leaders and are designed to meet professional and industry needs. Under the partnership with ESOFT Metro Campus, a total of five undergraduate degrees are available:
1. BSc (Hons) Cyber Security and Digital Forensics
2. BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Software Engineering)
3. BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Networking and Network Security)
4. BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Web and Mobile Application Development)
5. BSc (Hons) Multimedia Technology
These degrees are designed to cover the latest areas of technology and innovation, and will prepare the successful graduate for their chosen career. The demand for qualified IT professionals is ever increasing, and employment is therefore not something to worry about. What makes a full three year degree special and stand out from the rest is the fact that all three years are offered from one single university, rather than the traditional approach of learning and completing a lesser qualification such as a Higher Diploma and then topping that up with a “top-up” degree. The fact that your degree is earnt from a single institution will give more recognition as well as stability to the learner.
Further, at the end of the 2nd year, the student is placed in an industry apprenticeship whereby first-hand experience will be gained for a period of 3-6 months. This will further help to make the learner workready, by letting them experience the industry environment. We strongly believe that everyone has the right to education, and it needs to be accessible to all. Students who have received their advanced level results can apply for our merit based scholarship programme and obtain up to 50% scholarship from the total course fee. We have thought about the parents too, in designing the payment structure. A 0% interest monthly payment plan is available which gives the parents the benefit of being able to pay over an extended time, without requiring any bank loans, mortgages, or guarantors.
