Why CSCT?

“There are many reasons for students to choose to study at CSCT over other institutes in Sri Lanka:”

Quality instruction

The hallmark of CSCT is the high calibre of CSCT’s distinguished management and faculty members, who are armed with a wealth of real-world and teaching experience.

Our lecturers have proven records of successful teaching and are skilled at providing hands-on learning experiences that are integral to our programs. Our academic programs are guided by Prof. Chitra Weddikkara and Prof. Rameezdeen – both industry experts with over 20 years experience in the academic and construction industry.

Our staff members maintain close links to the dynamic nature of the construction industry, ensuring that all lecture content is up-to-date and relevant.

Smaller classes to maximise learning

Lecture groups have a maximum of 50 students, with an average between 30-40 students and are complemented with tutorials and workshops that are conducted in smaller groups. This ensures that our students receive the best attention and gives them an opportunity to interact with lecturers easily.

We also conduct a special program of English and academic studies for students who require additional help.

Option to fast-track into careers or further studies

Due to our excellent quality programs with industrial training components, our students are ready to begin their professional careers upon completion of their HND. Alternatively, students can obtain entry into 2nd/3rd year of a university degree in a similar programme in the UK if desired.

Our CSCT career advisors provide counselling services to students on the best path to take with future goals in mind.

High quality UK qualifications at affordable costs

CSCT offers internationally recognized undergraduate and post graduate qualifications. Our Higher National Diploma programmes are accredited and quality assured by Edexcel (Pearson). Edexcel (Pearson) is UK’s largest awarding body of academic and vocational qualifications.

Our undergraduate and post graduate programmes are conducted in partnership with UK universities. CSCT has excellent partner universities in the name of University of Salford and Birmingham City University. These affiliations allow CSCT students upon completion, to be on par with students who have undertaken university education overseas thus providing excellent employment opportunities.  These partnerships also an opportunity for students to obtain foreign qualifications at a fraction of the cost, without travelling overseas for higher education.
