About UCL

UCL – The premier transnational higher education provider in Sri Lanka.

Universal College Lanka (UCL) is fully owned by Eduko Lanka (Pvt) Ltd., a private education services company serving high performing students and professionals. UCL has carved out a niche as the premier transnational higher education provider in Sri Lanka by partnering with esteemed global institutions to help bring out the best in our students. 

UCL is the brainchild of its four principals; South Asian businessman – Mr. Bob Kundanmal, who heads the Sino Lanka Group of Companies comprising of Hotels, Hospitals, International Schools and other ventures; Chairman of Gateway Group of Organisations comprising of a chain of primary and secondary international schools and other ventures – Dr. Harsha Alles; Senior Partner and Managing Director of The Boston Consulting Group Malaysia – Mr. Zarif Munir; and private equity fund specialist and management personality – Mr. Steven Enderby. 

UCL’s policies are defined by integrity, honesty and professionalism. Students embrace this ethos and the ethical best practices that a modern institute can offer to leverage on to a global platform to excel. Passionately espousing a student centric approach, our perfection comes from listening to student needs ‘24×7’ and adopting innovative teaching and learning practices inclusive of delivery of quality content, updated syllabi, research, practical exposure, and empowering students to be innovative and creative. 

UCL adopts an uncompromising commitment to offer the most stringent international standards and highest quality of higher education in Sri Lanka. UCL possesses a highly qualified and competent faculty among the private tertiary education institutes in the country, enabling them to achieve academic excellence and offer their students a superior learning experience in a caring environment. It is also unique that the UCL Faculty includes Monash University alumni, who contribute in no small measure to prepare their students to excel at a Top 50 University in the world to become the Best Graduates in Business, Engineering and IT at Monash University. It is remarkable that UCL has consistently produced over 400 Monash Global Awards of Excellence recipients.
