Message from the Dean


Education is the backbone of an individual and the country as a whole. Higher education gives strength to a person to face the challenges of the modern world with confidence. Correctly guided higher education will promote skills development, self-confidence, deep analytical thinking in problem solving and positive attitudes together with sustained cultural values to a person.  Therefore higher education is a win-win situation to the individual and to the country.


Since higher education elevates a generation, the best investment in a family is to educate the children up to graduate or postgraduate level. The investment made on private sector higher education affiliated to recognized universities globally is a lifetime investment.


In selecting a Higher Educational Institute, the quality of diploma/degree programs are extremely important. The institute should have affiliations to recognized universities/authority locally or internationally. HND of Pearson, US (Edexcel, UK) are worldwide recognized producing qualified human resources suitable for global markets. The affiliated university will monitor the quality of the diploma/degree programs they deliver through local higher education institute and would assure quality on par with their internal students.


BCAS with the recognition as the best private higher education institute in the country as published by LMD magazine, proves the high quality higher education at an affordable cost to suit its motto: Building Careers-Transforming Lives. I strongly recommend the parents to invest on the higher education of their children to become qualified from world recognized higher education Institute.


BCAS, as a higher education institute, provides the opportunity for students to pursue quality higher education and fulfills the education aspiration of youth giving them a hope for future. Having a history of 17 years BCAS Campus since 2010 has been recognized and won awards continuously for its quality services from Edexcel, UK and United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD) in 2014.

Welcome message from the Chairman


Mr. M M Abdur Rahman, BSc Eng (Hons) - Chairman

British College of Applied Studies is an educational institution of exemplary standards in Sri Lanka . Rigorous academic procedures, commitment to quality education, extensive investment, solid management and continuous development are the principles that have raised the College's profile and shaped its growth in the last few years. BCAS's affiliation to the Prestigious universities like University of Wolverhampton, University of Bedfordshire (Formerly University of Luton) and the Edexcel, UK manifests and, at the same time, guarantees our commitment to these principles. Incidentally, we happen to be the only institution in Sri Lanka to be awarded 7A's in the latest External Verification Audit by the Edexcel, UK.

In a short period of time, BCAS has established model education procedures and managed to attract students with high demands and aspirations. Students at BCAS enjoy the advantages of a unique combination: the internationally recognized quality and credibility of First Class of higher education combined with the parallel investigation and analysis of the Sri Lankan environment.

BCAS' corner stone is the high calibre of its excellent full-time Academic staff. All lecturers are strongly committed to research and they have a long teaching and professional experience.

As a result of our high quality and of our strong links with the industry we enjoy an impressive and outstanding career record: 99% of our products are enrolled in foreign universities or employed in high and middle positions.

Students' life at the college is more than studying hard, writing assignments and taking exams. It is also about socializing and communicating, making contacts, meeting interesting people, forming lasting friendships.

At BCAS we are proud of all that we have accomplished until now. We are also confident of the prospects that open for both our students and the College in the future. It is in this faith that we offer to you an educational experience which is shaped by commitment, enthusiasm, discipline, effectiveness, insight and creativity: an educational experience which can withstand the demands of the contemporary world.
