Universal College Lanka (UCL) holds the unique distinction of being the only transnational education institute in Sri Lanka that provides a guaranteed pathway to the prestigious Monash University through its exclusive partnership. Monash University is ranked 55th in the world (as per the QS World University Rankings 2021) and is a research-oriented Group of Eight University in Australia. Students who enrol for the June 2021 intake and successfully complete the Monash College Diploma in Business, IT or Science (equivalent to Year 1 of the Degree) at UCL would be privileged to receive special study grants and secure a guaranteed entry to Year 2 of their chosen degree at Monash University Australia in February 2022.

Key factors to consider for discerning students to select the Monash Pathway at UCL include the following.

  • The Only Guaranteed Pathway programme to Monash University

Students who enrol at UCL for the Monash University Foundation Year after O’ Levels or Monash College Diploma (equivalent to the 1st year of the degree) programmes in IT, Science, Business or Engineering after A’ Levels secure a guaranteed pathway to Monash University in Australia or Malaysia. Upon successful completion, the student gains entry to the 2nd of their chosen degree programme at Monash University. UCL has successfully transferred more than 500 students in the past five years to complete their globally recognised degrees at Monash University. UCL Students have also successfully transitioned to other universities in Australia upon completion of the high-quality programmes delivered at UCL to international standards.


  • Academic Quality and Excellence

With its uncompromising commitment to higher quality higher education, UCL has produced over 295 Monash Global Awards of Excellence recipients in the past five years. Monash Global Awards of Excellence are awarded to students who have achieved the highest average for a subject among all other Monash College providers internationally, including Melbourne, Australia.

The main reason behind this success is their exceptionally qualified and competent faculty lead by our Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Dhananjay Kulkarni PhD (University of California, USA), MSc (University of California, USA) BEng (University of Pune, India), who are committed to ensuring that their students are provided with the coaching support and the learning experience required to excel in their programmes of studies. The UCL faculty are all approved by Monash University and possess at least an MSc/MBA or PhD/ Reading for PhD in their respective fields of expertise and have several years of experience teaching in many reputed degree programmes including Monash. It is worth noting that 80% of their lecture panel are in-house full-time lecturers who are always available for the students. Their commitment, dedication and efforts have been proven worthwhile with outstanding student achievements at UCL and at Monash Australia.

It is also unique that our Programme Coordinators of the Monash College Diploma in Business and IT Dr. Devangi Perera and the Monash University Foundation Year Ms. Asiri Perera, are both Monash Alumni. The experiences they have gathered during their tenure at Monash University have been extremely useful in adding value to teaching methods via innovative ways and provide a superior learning experience to UCL students.

At UCL, they adopt the small-group teaching methodology where they maintain internationally recommended classroom sizes. This small-group teaching method enables their lecturers to give their utmost attention to each student thereby the students receive 100% individual attention during every lecture. This classroom set-up enables effective interactions among lecturer and student, encourages more group discussions between students and ultimately leading to a great student-lecturer relationship which they always strive to achieve.


  • Unmatched Campus Life

The vision of UCL is to produce resourceful, enterprising and sought-after graduates. They believe that to bring out the best in every student, a campus must provide students with an experience that would allow them to develop their soft skills apart from the academic skills and knowledge acquired. UCL is committed to providing a holistic experience of an Unmatched Campus Life that focuses on extra-curricular activities including a range of sports such as Basketball, Football, Futsal, Badminton, Swimming, Netball, indoor sports such as pool, foosball, carrom, etc., the UCL Drama Club, and programmes to enhance communication and leadership skills, foster teamwork and inculcate social responsibility as well. The UCL Student Council organises and conducts exciting events and activities such as Open Mic Nights, Fashion Shows, Talent Shows, to develop student engagement and enhance the student experience at UCL.   

UCL conducts the Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) and the Monash College Diploma (equivalent to the first year of the degree) in Business, Engineering, Science and IT.
