University to offer new courses to Sri Lankan students

The University of Wolverhampton is to improve its links with an overseas college by offering several new courses to its students.

The University has been working in partnership with the British College of Applied Studies, in Sri Lanka, since 2005, offering BCAS students several courses to choose from.

These have included HNDs in quantity surveying and business management.

The partnership between the two institutions has grown and this week the Chairman of BCAS visited the University to meet the Vice Chancellor and senior staff to discuss future developments. 

From January, BCAS students will be able to study Masters’ degrees in construction project management and law, and developments for the future include a Masters’ degrees in IT security, along with a BSc in computing and a BSc in biomedical science.

Those students who undertake the University of Wolverhampton courses can study in UK or back home in Sri Lanka.

Abdul Rahman, chief executive of BCAS, said he had enjoyed visiting staff at the University of Wolverhampton.

He said: “We have had a strong, rewarding relationship with the University for some years now and it is a privilege to work with such a diverse and hardworking establishment.

“It has helped us to build our portfolio and increase what we can offer students. English qualifications are well-regarded internationally and help our students find jobs throughout the world, helping them compete in the job market.”

Geoff Layer, the University of Wolverhampton’s Vice-Chancellor said: “We pride ourselves on being the university of opportunity and by establishing and strengthening our links with institutions like BCAS, we can extend that opportunity to students worldwide.”
