ESOFT is a trusted name in Sri Lanka for providing high quality education focusing on ICT and Business. This is due in part to the fact that ESOFT builds partnerships with reputed organisations in the education sector to provide the best opportunities to Sri Lankan students.
ESOFT offers a range of courses and programmes for young kids, school leavers, and professionals. Qualifications range from primary ICT classes for kids to Master's Degrees for those that have already completed their first degree or have suitable working experience.
BIT Degree (UCSC)
The Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) Degree was introduced in the year 2000 by the late Prof. Vidyajyothi V. K. Samaranayake to cater to the increasing demand for ICT graduates by the Industry, and also to provide opportunities to students that cannot enter into University via the standard pathway. BIT is a three year Academic Degree awarded by the University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC). All examinations are conducted by the UCSC and various training organisations provide the material delivery to prepare the students for the exams.
ESOFT is the #1 course provider in Sri Lanka for the BIT External Degree offered by the UCSC. The reason that we can confidently say this is because ESOFT students became the batch top for the last four consecutive years. In order to promote IT among Sri Lankans, we offer incentives to existing local university students by offering them a 50% discount on the course fees when registering for the BIT Degree. Government school teachers will also receive a 25% discount for this degree. The BIT Degree is available at our main branches islandwide.
BIT Degree (University of Moratuwa)
ESOFT is also a collaborative partner of the University of Moratuwa in offering their BIT External Degree, and has the highest intake of students from among the partners. ESOFT conducts this programme at our branches in Colombo, Kandy, Kurunegala, and Jaffna.
Edexcel HND's, Top-up Degrees, Master's Degrees
Students that complete their Advanced Level exams at this session can enter into the Edexcel Higher National Diploma (HND) Programme choosing either the Computing or Business Management fields. This is a modular programme that can be completed in a period of 1 ½ to 2 years. Thereafter, students can complete their Bachelor's Degree via the partnership that ESOFT has with the Buckinghamshire New University. Top-up (final year) degree programmes are currently available in the form of B.Sc (Hons) in Computing, and B.A. (Hons) in Business & Finance. Even if your child wishes to follow a different stream or wishes to enter into state university, we can offer part-time classes on weekends thereby allowing your child to gain a double qualification which would definitely provide a more solid foundation for the future.
Compared to the option of sending children to overseas universities, this option is several times more economical and safer, as well as your loved ones stay close to home.
As a special incentive for this intake, students that register either for the top-up degrees or for the complete degree will receive a special batch treat. All of these students will be taken on an overseas tour to Malaysia for sightseeing, shopping, and an overall great time after completing their first semester of studies.
For those that are seeking postgraduate qualifications, ESOFT has on offer an M.Sc in Strategic Information Systems which is offered in collaboration with Buckinghamshire New University, UK.

The course is conducted full-time, on all weekdays and covers the BCS subjects as well as additional modules including SCJP, MCTS, CCNA, Web Designing, Hardware and Networking, and more. The exams can be completed in 18 to 20 months and thereby provides a fast track to gainful employment or entrance into a Master's Programme such as an M.Sc or MBA.
