Educational opportunities in Sri Lanka for international students range from Accounting and Management to Engineering & ICT. While the country currently offers Higher Education mainly for regional countries, the Ministry of Higher Education has outlined a vision to establish Sri Lanka as an international hub of excellence for higher education.
The formulation of the necessary legislation to regulate private sector Higher Education institutes has already been initiated by the government, and the establishment of private sector universities is expected to attract approximately 50,000 international students. At the same time, around 12,000 local students who leave the country for Higher Education are expected to be absorbed, thus protecting foreign exchange reserves and savings. International education institutions such as the University of Central Lancashire, UK, and the Raffles Education Corporation, Singapore, have already committed to invest in Sri Lanka.
Given that most major educational institutions are located in Colombo, international students have the opportunity to enjoy the city’s historic architecture & waterways, public parks, museums, restaurants, and shopping complexes. Information on how to obtain Sri Lankan student visa can be found on the website of Department of Immigration & Emigration, Sri Lanka.
