Established in 2015, Universal College Lanka (UCL) has become a symbol of excellence to discerning students seeking quality education across the globe. From pathway programmes to global destinations in the ilk of Monash University – Australia and Dalhousie University – Canada and degree completion programmes from the University of Central Lancashire – UK, each distinct programme and destination spells success for the student.

The Board of Directors, Management and the rest of Team UCL possess an enlightened business ethos and an uncompromising commitment to quality education, in the quest to offer discerning students the best of global and local opportunities that translate to top-notch jobs and careers. Our quest for perfection comes from adopting a ‘Student- First’ approach and delivering a high quality teaching and learning experience, inclusive of research- led syllabi and the freedom for students to be innovative and creative in a modern ambience, state-of-the art facilities and an array of recreational activities. With high academic outcomes a great student experience as a benchmark of excellence, UCL speaks volumes for each student’s journey in search of excellence, success and fulfilment.
