ESOFT Metro Campus was recently granted Non-State Degree Awarding Institution status, with effect from 30th August 2019. This was in accordance with Section 25 A of the Universities Act, No. 16 of 1978, which allows for the Ministry of City Planning, Water Supply and Higher Education to make such a declaration after reviewing the expert reports submitted by the panel appointed by the Ministry.

ESOFT Metro Campus was established in 2000 and is a trusted name in Sri Lanka for providing high quality education. This is due in part to the fact that ESOFT builds partnerships with reputed international organisations in the education sector in order to provide the best opportunities to Sri Lankan Students, and also because we have taken education to the rural areas of Sri Lanka as well via our branch network of over 40 locations which also includes the North and the East.

ESOFT offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the fields of IT, Business Management, Engineering, Travel & Tourism Management, and Hospitality Management. With a trusted track record of 19 years, ESOFT has a lot to offer the youth of this country.

With the addition of the Non-State Degree Awarding status, ESOFT will be able to design and introduce a range of degree programmes in a wide variety of disciplines including IT & Computing, Business and Management, Engineering, and more.

These degrees will be designed in accordance with, and full compliance of UGC guidelines and circulars, whilst also taking inputs from employers as well as looking at the latest international trends.Given the fact that the majority of students who pass their A/L’s are unable to secure a place in the state universities, the inclusion of ESOFT in the Degree Awarding category is a timely action.

Under this programme, the funding is provided by the State in the form of an interest free loan, and the student starts to pay back the loan only after completing the degree.

Given the fact that Information Technology is one of the fastest developing fields in Sri Lanka, contributing over one billion US Dollars annually to Sri Lanka’s export revenue, there is a massive need for qualified professionals.
