  • muhammeth nathees.

    please state me. is the institute of ”British College of Applied Studies ” approved by the university grants commission??

    • mplgmg Post author

      Normally UGC site mentioned that universities under commonwealth counties accepted by UGC. But it’s better to contact UGC and be specific that Cardiff University UK is recognized by UGC. If you are plan to apply for government job this may occur huge problem afterwards, because to apply on certain government and some reputed private companies they expect degrees which recognized by UGC Sri Lanka.

    • mplgmg Post author

      According to the list which published on UGC on their website ICBT Degrees not approved UGC.

      But If you follow any degree program affiliated with private educations institutes such as ICBT under commonwealth countries (eg UK) there are recognition for UGC .

      So its better to ask UGC on the program which you plan to do are recongised by UGC before follow the course.

    • mplgmg Post author

      Since ACCA is a professional program it dosent matter whether its UGC Approved or not. But if you are plan to follow degree in forign university its essential to follow deep whether its got the UGC approval

    • mplgmg Post author

      Graduate diploma (ECuk) is not a Degree and its a professional course on path to become a chartered engineer.

      Im not so sure that UGC approved this course . But they didn’t list it out on their approved list of degrees.

      But Graduate diploma (ECuk) conducted by City & Guild is consider as a qualification which is equal to degree.

      In Sri Lanka after you complete this Graduate diploma (ECuk) you need to follow some modules to get IESL membership and You can get IET membership for after complete this.

  • Shirani Lewis

    If we follow course approved by UGC…does the certificate equal to local universities such as University of Moratuwa?
    I mean if i follow civil engineering in Sliit university, Could i get government jobs.because sliit is a UGC approved one.

    • mplgmg Post author

      Yes , Normaly a valid UGC recognized degree is equal to goverment university degree and you can get goverment jobs too. But for Civil Engineering you need professional qualification which means you need IESL recognition to enter in to goverment engineering related jobs.

    • mplgmg Post author

      Up to now this degree is not under the UGC list any way you can clarify whether this degree got UGC recognition from the relevant institute or University grant commission for further details. Its always better to get clarify that this degree got the recognition before you do this program.

  • Tharaka

    Is SLTC(Sri Lanka Technological Campus) registered under UGC for their degree courses..? & How is the job marketing of the course..? I want to know soon.

    • mplgmg Post author

      SLTC(Sri Lanka Technological Campus) is now emerging private education institute who much focus in engineering related degree and other programs. Since they start very recently these degree programs are still not register under UGC list .

  • Harshani Wijesuriya

    Please let me know whether Sri Lanka Institute Of Tourism & Hotel Management (SLITHM) is registered under UGC or not?
    Also I want to know, does Bandaranaike Centre for International Relations (BCIS) is approved by UGC?

    • mplgmg Post author

      For Institute they didn’t receive UGC recognition. But they conduct degrees on University of West of England which is common wealth university. And UGC recognized common wealth university degree. but its always better to contact UGC to get their opinion on this degree program.

    • mplgmg Post author

      According to UGC list of institutes BMS institute not in the list. Since most of private education institutes in Sri Lanka conduct UK affliated degree programs and most of the UK affilated degree programs fall in to commonwealth univiersities.

      Common wealth univisities are recognzed by the University Grant Commsion valid degree. So most of the degree are indriectly recongized by UGC and there are very few univerisitis and institutes reconignized by UGC and most of the degree programs conduct fall in to this type of recognitions.
