These students now have the capability of completing the BCS HEQ up to the Professional Graduate Diploma (PGD) level and then following postgraduate studies including Masters Degrees even in state universities. They key point is that the BCS HEQ can be completed in as little as two years thereby giving you a fast pathway to higher studies, and the qualification can be completed parallel with your A/L studies if you wish.

The British Computer Society (BCS) has awarded "Accredited Course Provider" status to ESOFT for all three levels of the programme, after having considered multiple factors including the number of students studying at ESOFT, their results, facilities at ESOFT, qualifications and number of academic and non-academic staff, etc. ESOFT is the only organisation in Sri Lanka to be accredited by the BCS and is also the only institute in the entire world to be accredited by the BCS for all three levels of the programme (Certificate, Diploma, and Professional Graduate Diploma levels).
The BCS is the only organisation in the world to offer Chartered Professional status for ICT practitioners and the relevant exam that leads to chartered status is conducted in Sri Lanka as well as many other countries worldwide. In order to gain Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status first the individual must complete the necessary exams and then gain experience via employment. Those that complete the exams can then obtain Membership in the BCS Professional Body (MBCS) as well as at the Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL).
The BCS also holds an Annual Graduation Ceremony where approximately 200 graduates are awarded their qualification.
