  • Internal British Degrees In Computing, Business And Law

Responding to the increasing demand for higher education in Sri Lanka, APIIT, a leading higher education institution in the country, provides opportunities for higher education in three attractive fields, namely, Computing/ IT, Business/ Management and Law.
APIIT School of Computing offers specialised degree programmes in Software Engineering, Computing Science and Multimedia Computing. Equal emphasis on theory and practice of computing and emphasis on project work during the final year of the programme is a distinctive feature of the Computing degrees. The ‘hybrid’ Applied IT Degree programmes such as Business Information Technology and Business Computing are a unique combination of computing and management disciplines and meet the demands of the modern world where business takes place in an IT environment.
APIIT Business School offers specialised degree programmes in Business Management. While the programmes are designed to cover comprehensively all areas of business, the course content is advantageously integrated with the theory and practice of information technology. This unique blend of Business with IT ensures that APIIT graduates will be able to use the full potential of Information Technology in analysing and solving business problems giving them a cutting edge in their professional career.
APIIT Law School offers internal British degrees in Law. The internal university degrees are unique and have special characteristics. A unique feature of the internal LLB (Hons) Law degree is the SKILLS training programme that will take place throughout the first year.  SKILLS training will be conducted mostly through workshops and will impart skills such as legal problem solving, legal writing and research, client interviewing, and critical analysis. Consequently, students will be equipped with not only subject knowledge but also a wide array of skills to become effective practitioners on graduation.
Students have the option of completing the entire degree at APIIT in Sri Lanka or transferring to Staffordshire University in the UK. Students may also transfer to affiliated universities in the UK and Australia. Three intakes per year allow students to enter higher education as soon as they complete their O/L and A/L examinations without wasting precious time. Students who possess two A/L passes could secure direct entry to degree programmes and, on completion of three years of study, receive their internal degrees from Staffordshire University, UK.
Students who have sat A/L examination this year enrol immediately in the degree programmes pending results. APIIT also provides a fast-track route to degree programmes for O/L qualified students through a comprehensive pre-university Foundation Programme of 8-months duration.
