  • Partners with UK’s Ulster University to offer world-class LLB degree for Sri Lankan students

 

Further strengthening its leadership in the Sri Lankan tertiary education, Nawaloka College of Higher Studies (NCHS) announced its partnership with the Ulster University in the United Kingdom to commence an LLB degree transfer program to offer a pathway to their internationally recognised Bachelor in Law (LLB) degree final year. This strategic collaboration paves a path for local students to complete a law degree from a leading university in the United Kingdom at a fraction of the cost of studying overseas.

Students with Advanced Level qualifications or Students who have sat for the London A/Levels this year can apply and join the prestigious LLB Law Degree program, which is a ‘2+1 Degree Transfer programme’, starting from February 2019. This will provide the opportunity for students who are seeking a career in the legal sector to become a competent legal professional or work in international legal firms around the globe. Students have the option to study their final year in the UK or Northern Ireland after completing the first two years of the degree at NCHS Campus. 

Expressing his views of this new partnership, Nawaloka College of Higher Studies Chairman Dr. Jayantha Dharmadasa said, “The demand for professionals with a thorough knowledge in legal practices is on the rise; both globally and locally. I firmly believe this partnership will enable us to provide sound academic guidance to Sri Lankan students. University of Ulster curriculum is well designed to bring out the best in students and it is the perfect platform for local undergraduates to nurture their skills to shine in their legal careers.”

“Our commitment to provide and facilitate quality education at an affordable cost to Sri Lankan students is unwavering. Collaborating with one of the highly rated UK law schools to introduce an LLB Degree programme was another step taken forward in our journey to become Sri Lanka’s leading higher education provider. The Ulster University in the UK offers one of the best law degree programs in Europe and we consider it a great honour to be able to bring this opportunity to our students. I congratulate both universities on their partnership and wish all the success for,” said Nawaloka College of Higher Studies Deputy Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Victor Ramanan. 

Ulster University provides an inspiring, engaging and intellectually stimulating environment for students of law at the undergraduate, post-graduate and CPD level. Research emerging from the School of Law is both pioneering and world-leading, with results from the UK National Exercise (REF) assessing their research as fourth overall in the UK, eclipsing the results of larger and more established law schools. The School of Law in the National Student Survey results 2017 had an overall satisfaction of 96%, way above the national average, and in the Guardian University League Tables for 2018 Law at Ulster ranks in the top 20 UK Law Schools.

This initiative further strengthens our presence in the Sri Lankan private education sector while constantly striving to provide and facilitate quality education at an affordable cost to Sri Lankan students.”
