ESOFT Metro Campus, the pioneer in Sri Lanka’s higher education industry in the field of Information Technology (IT) has joined forces with the University of Moratuwa, an institution that’s both locally and internationally reputed for producing engineering and technical professionals, to offer an External Degree program in Information Technology (BIT). These courses are scheduled to be conducted at the ESOFT Metro Campus branches in Colombo, Kalutara, Kurunegala, Kandy, Galle, Negombo and Jaffna.

ESOFT Metro Campus Managing Director Dr. Dayan Rajapakse commented, “Currently the opportunities for a qualified graduate from a globally recognised university to command a professional wage anywhere in the world are endless and IT professionals are recognised in the same vein as doctors and engineers. As such, the University of Moratuwa which is globally renowned for producing top Information Technology professionals offers these Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) degree courses to be conducted externally within a three-year period for a modest Rs. 350,000. It would be a smart and affordable investment for those parents with an eye on a professionally viable and extremely lucrative future for their kids in the IT sector overseas.” 

Dr. Rajapakse added that ESOFT Metro Campus conducts these External Degree programs in close affiliation with the University of Moratuwa and under their institutional and academic purview. To qualify for this exclusive opportunity a student needs to obtain a Credit Pass for Mathematics at the General Certificate of Education – Ordinary Level (GCE O/L) examination along with Simple Passes in three subjects at the General Certificate of Education – Advance Level (GCE A/L) examination. These scores are all that an applicant would need at the very minimum to enable him or her to gain entry to this accredited program. 

The students either could pay the full amount of the course fee straight away or they are provided with the facility to pay via a bank loan. These new admissions are open to the BIT degree program now available at ESOFT branches in Colombo, Kalutara, Kurunegala, Kandy, Galle, Negombo and Jaffna.
