The prospective students, parents, lectures and the college representatives communicated in an interactive way during the well-organised event.

Every year, Sri Lankan students are presented with an opportunity by CfPS to win scholarships worth Rs. 15 million to follow this highly esteemed LL.B degree and diploma, and this year also they have selected 100 deserving students out of over 1,000 applicants.

CfPS holds a competitive selection exam which tests applicants’ IQ and knowledge in current affairs and general knowledge, with an interview process where the applicants’ extracurricular activities, personality and academic achievements are scrutinised carefully.
