ACHE opens fourth branch in Negombo

The American College of Higher Education (ACHE) affiliated to the Broward Community College in Florida, USA and Excelsior College in New York opened its fourth branch in Negombo on Wednesday.

The ACHE was launched in Sri Lanka in 1995 with its first college in Dehiwela. Last year ACHE marked 10 years of successful operations with branches opened in Kandy and Galle.

The Negombo branch will cater to the educational needs of students in Gampaha, Ja-ela, Wennappuwa, Kochchikade and Puttalam. We have moved to the periphery of the country to provide youth with opportunities for higher education.

Our vision is to provide educational opportunities to students who were not selected to universities but keen to pursue higher studies, ACHE, CEO Sherryn Yaseen Mangalagama said.

ACHE provides educational facilities to students who are unable to enter universities due to limited accommodation facilities. A large number of Sri Lankan students is left high and dry without opportunities to continue their education.

Yaseen said "Our institute has opened its doors for American University Education which is different to traditional British education. We have been conducting degree programs in a range of educational disciplines such as computer sciences, IT, business studies, science and social sciences".

ACHE offers over 500 subjects and students could obtain degrees and opt for further studies in the States. Over 400 students have been selected to universities in the States, Canada and Australia.

Degree programs are structured in such a way that students have the facility to complete two years in Sri Lanka and two years abroad.ACHE provides facilities to students to complete the four-year degree courses in Sri Lanka.

The institute conducts certificate, diploma and post graduate diploma courses in IT, English, business studies and psychology.
