About Us

Universal College Lanka (UCL) has carved out a niche as the premier transnational education institute in Sri Lanka which exclusively provides a guaranteed pathway to the prestigious Monash University, a world’s Top 100 university, to discerning students in South Asia.

We are equally pleased to partner with the University of Central Lancashire, celebrating its 190th anniversary this year, being the earliest established British University to offer degree programmes in Sri Lanka. It is also the first UK modern Higher Education institution to appear in the QS World University Rankings, and is currently ranked in the top 3.7 percent of all universities worldwide.

In an increasingly knowledge- based global economy, quality education is more important than ever. At UCL, we espouse a student centric approach and an uncompromising commitment to achieve, maintain and offer the most stringent international standards and highest quality of higher education in Sri Lanka. We possess a highly qualified and competent faculty among the private tertiary education institutes in the country, enabling us to achieve academic excellence and offer our students a superior learning experience in a caring environment. The holistic learning experience instilled at UCL includes a combination of inculcating knowledge, acquisition of skills, provision of industry exposure and the development of a winning attitude to ultimately become resourceful, competent and the most sought-after leaders who could contribute effectively to social and economic development both locally and internationally.

Our campus is conveniently situated in Sri Lanka’s capital city in a picturesque location bordering the historical Diyawanna Lake offering panoramic views of the surrounding tranquil environment and the central business district’s skyscrapers at a distance. Within its premises, we offer state of the art facilities such as internationally recommended classroom sizes for greater student interaction and engagement, modern laboratories, well equipped library, comfortable study areas and our unique rooftop lounge for leisure and recreation of our students. We also organise and conduct both indoor and outdoor events and activities to develop student engagement and enhance the student experience at UCL.

We take pleasure in inviting you to UCL!
