Royal Institute of Colombo’s (RIC) longstanding affiliation with the University of London (UoL) has once again resulted in world-class student performances. The school saw 26 outstanding graduates obtaining First Class Honours in the May/June 2023 UoL examinations including world prizes in the Economics, Management and Finance degree programmes.

World prizes for academic excellence

The world prizes that were awarded to RIC graduates serve as a testimony to their exceptional academic achievement.

In fact, the awarding of these prizes is further evidence of the high standards of education that RIC students receive, and a reflection of its commitment to providing students with the opportunity to excel and achieve their full potential.

RIC’s University of London degree programmes are offered under the academic direction of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), which is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world. This affiliation provides RIC students with access to world-class teaching and learning resources, and prepares them for success in their chosen careers.

Nurturing future leaders

The institution envisions a future where its students become creators and entrepreneurs, not followers. As such, the education that RIC imparts is aimed at developing future leaders who will address global challenges and create a better world.

This purpose is reflected in the wide range of degree programmes that RIC offers including the LLB by the University of London, and psychology programmes through the academic direction of King’s College London.

In addition to its commitment to providing high quality education, RIC also makes a significant contribution to the development of Sri Lanka by producing graduates who are equipped to address the country's most pressing challenges.

Expanding academic horizons

RIC also recently expanded the scope of degrees offered by the University of London with the addition of degrees in Political Science and International Relations. These new degree programmes will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the political and international landscape, and prepare them for careers in government, diplomacy and other fields.

Recognition and quality assurance

Further to RIC’s international university affiliations and accomplishments, its ongoing commitment to excellence – with official recognition and approval from the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and University Grants Commission (UGC) for the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biomedical Science, and Bachelor of Business (Honours) in International Economics and Finance – is noteworthy.

These approvals testify to the high quality and rigorous standards maintained in every programme RIC offers to ensure that each undergraduate receives an education of utmost value and recognition.

With an exceptionally qualified faculty that strives to maintain high academic standards, RIC ensures that each undergraduate acquires knowledge and masters skills to secure above average global standards in any and every higher educational and professional arena they have chosen. Driven by the ideology of constructing excellence in every aspect of growth and education in its undergraduates, RIC offers carefully structured, well-delivered international degree programmes and qualifications.

It also offers several exclusive mentoring programmes for undergraduates including those with notable RIC alumni who have reached their profound goals.

Tailoring education to global and local needs

Through the concerted efforts of its faculty and the rigour of its students, RIC plays a pivotal role in producing globally competent experts in the fields of information technology, engineering, science, economics, data science, finance, social sciences, forensic science, law, environment, public policy, education and psychology.

RIC’s commitment to providing its students with a world-class education is reflected in its innovative teaching and learning methods, as well as its dedication to designing degree programmes that meet the needs of the Sri Lankan economy and society.
