How can I do it?

Students who have passed the Advanced Level examination in any stream can choose to join this external degree programme. Lateral entry enables students who have other approved qualifications to take a selected number of courses to obtain the degree. Students can benefit from the teaching offered at approved partner organizations. In this learning setting, a student studies at a partner organization, while the assessments, examinations and award of diplomas, higher diplomas and degrees are conducted and conferred by the University of Moratuwa.

UoM offers its BIT courses in a fully-fledged online system, and therefore, students can study in the comfort of their own home, in addition to studying at the approved partner organizations. The online system makes available course material for the students to follow, and portals to submit assessments and receive feedback. This has opened a unique learner-centred education paradigm, where what matter is the enthusiasm and scholarship of the student.

UoM BIT degree programme in offered in two modes. Students can either decide to follow the BIT degree program as a partner organization student (mode 01) or direct independent student (mode 02). Mode 1 is study with an accredited partner organization. Mode 2 is the direct independent study mode where the students can register with the university, and study on their own using the e-learning materials and other open and distance learning resources facilitated by the CODL.
