ANC Offers The Only American Degree (Completion) Program in Sri Lanka!

International students top 1.18 million in America today. For decades America has been an attractive study abroad destination, and there are three main reasons why students feel going to the US is important: prestige, high quality academics, and unique college experience. Nevertheless, studying in the USA is not only a huge financial investment but also a tough decision to moving thousands of miles away from one’s family, friends, and culture, hence everyone cannot afford to go to America for higher studies. In this context, ANC Education collaborates with US universities of international repute to reach out to local students, offering the convenience of completing an American degree in psychology/ Business in Sri Lanka.

ANC offers Bachelor’s in Psychology – B.S. Human Development in joint partnership with SUNY Empire State College – a regionally accredited college of State University of New York.
Psychology – B.S. in Human Development

High Achievers Speak!
Pasindu Illangage joined ANC in summer 2014 after his ALs completed in Colombo International School. He was inspired and motivated throughout his career at ANC and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Psychology from the State University of New York this summer. His outstanding academic performance was recognized by SUNY at the ANC Graduation and Awards Night as he bagged the High Achiever’s Award 2018.
Given below are a few extracts from the interview with Pasindu:
Q: WHY DID YOU JOIN ANC AFTER A-LEVELS? DID ANC LIVE UPTO YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
A: Looking for a university to help nurture my newfound love for psychology, I immediately looked into ANC, as my sister and many of my high school classmates have been past or current students at ANC.
The degree completion program was an attractive offer, allowing for an international level degree to be taught by a highly qualified and diverse-thinking staff at a very affordable price. In terms of academic quality and staff, ANC certainly lived upto my expectations and even exceeded it at certain instances.
Q: HOW COULD YOU MAINTAIN A GPA OF 3.9 THROUGHOUT? ANY SUPPORT FROM FACULTY AND NON-ACADEMIC STAFF?
A: I would attribute this achievement to two things. Firstly to my batch mates and the ANC library, without whom my discussion/revision session would have not been as productive as they were. Secondly to the lecturers, who are approachable, extremely helpful and very clear in their explanations. The closeness with the faculty allows for an easier and more in-depth communication, in general. Their interest in the student’s progress serves as a bonus motivator, which is further enhanced by the way student questions and difficulties are approached.
Q: WHAT ARE THE SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE SUNY EDUCATION AT ANC?
A: The use of multimedia and student presentations merged with classroom lecturing is an extremely effective way, especially for a student looking for a variety and a challenge within their academic journey. The vast knowledge of the lecturers themselves adds to an already exciting classroom atmosphere.
Additionally, the online learning experience from SUNY was truly an eye-opening, and global-oriented experience. The high standards they held us to, the numerous resources that were given to us, the challenging but exciting assignments, and the diverse student body I was exposed to, are truly knowledge expanding experiences.
