They have the unique opportunity to complete both bachelor’s and master’s in Psychology within four years at ANC.Given that the benefits of a college degree are greater than a boost in one’s salary potential, it is the dream of every high school graduate (and their parents) to go to college.
Educational institutions are established everywhere in the country to meet this demand. However, it has been reported that the number of unemployed graduates in Sri Lanka has risen up to 58,000 by March this year. The current situation in Sri Lanka is more of unemployability than unemployment – graduates possess qualifications but not as per the requirement of the industry. In this context, ANC collaborates with world-class universities from America and Canada to offer an unmatched educational experience to local students, while breaking down the traditional boundaries existing between higher education and labor market: 99% of ANC graduates are in employment or grad school within 6 months of graduation.
Students who received ALs results are welcome to be enrolled on any of our undergraduate degree programs.
