Sponsored by the BOI, Victoria Higher Education (VHEL) has been established in Sri Lanka, to launch and operate Victoria Higher Education Campus (VHEC), a higher education institution, which will deliver degree programs from Greenwich University in London, UK.


Tertiary education is becoming more important in the modern world, and the demand for high quality curriculum and internationally recognised qualifications has been identified and addressed by the Ministry of Higher Education in Sri Lanka.

Calling out to establish international bodies such as VHEL, the Government of Sri Lanka along with the Ministry of Education has managed to attract the crème of educating bodies to Sri Lanka.

Greenwich University London, has been given the highest marks possible by the UK Quality Assurance Agency, and VHEL is proud to deliver degree programs from Greenwich to local students.

The owners and staff of VHEL/VHEC draw from their expertise and experience, in setting up and developing Middlesex University Dubai, Middlesex University Mauritius Branch Campus, Victoria University in Uganda, and many other international partnerships and collaborations that have proved to be a success and stand today as hallmarks of education in Europe, the Mediterranean, Singapore, Mainland China and Hong Kong.

VHEL owned by EDNET, a Dubai-based company, will provide the financial stability and backing required to enter the education market in Sri Lanka.

The vision of the Victoria Higher Education Campus is to provide high quality British higher education at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level, across a range of subjects to students from Sri Lanka and the region.

The aim of VHEC is to be regarded as one of the best higher education institutions in Sri Lanka, delivering an excellent experience to students, enabling them to move into stable employment and contribute to the local economy.

Located centrally in Colombo 4, VHEC will draw in the finest academics in the Asian region, making it a meeting point for excellent education. The programs will be taught and assessed to British quality standards and in accordance with British teaching and assessment methods.

The use of IT systems and online material will feature significantly in the classrooms. The programs will be subject to inspection by local education regulators and by the British Quality Assurance Agency.

VHEC aims to draw in students from around the South Asian region, helping Sri Lanka to become an educational hub for the region.

High quality educational practices combined with highly qualified and experienced staff will enable students to study, in an international atmosphere equivalent to the experience of studying in Greenwich University in London.
