College is a great investment, and over the last 5 years, the number of students that have foregone the A Level and headed straight to college has skyrocketed as the job market is getting increasingly competitive.In this context, those who have gained international exposure and hands-on experience during their studies are twice as likely to be employed within three months of graduation. ANC Education, in collaboration with a number of world class universities, has allowed local students to follow an undergraduate degree right after O Levels, which enables them to graduate by the age of 21to land a career of their choice here in Sri Lanka or abroad.

U.S. education system allows students to start an undergraduate degree right after GCSEs or O levels as O level is equivalent to a high school diploma in the U.S.A. For those who have studied in the Sinhala medium, remedial English classes are conducted free of charge to enable them to continue their studies in the English medium. ANC ensures a seamless transition from O levels to undergraduate level studies.
