CINEC introduces ‘foundation program’ for international degree

CINEC offers a six-month foundation program leading to International BSc Degree. The students need not have to pass any subjects at their G.C.E. (Advanced Level) Examination.

Students who have five credits in their G.C.E. (O/L) including two credits for English, Mathematics or Science in one sitting and have sat for A/L in any stream namely, Science, Commerce, Technology or Arts.

For students who have failed the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) Examination should do the examination in the following year. Accordingly, the academic process during the two years in the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) is given due recognition when enrolling students for CINEC Foundation Program. The foundation program replaces the need for students to be qualified in the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) Examination and provides sufficient knowledge to bridge the gap.

It contains a degree in relevant subjects such as Transport Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Economics, Concepts of Information and Communication Technology, Mathematics, Business Statistics, English language, and Fundamentals of Management.

The other advantage is that students, irrespective of the stream they followed in their Advanced level classes, CINEC foundation link them to a science degree which is a rare opportunity. Although the subject selection in the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) should be a learned decision, there are students/parents who make a misjudgment when selecting the subject stream in the G.C.E. (Advanced Level) due to poor SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis.CINEC foundation program helps students in many ways. Primarily, it eases the fundamental barrier to enter a university without three simple passes at G.C.E. (Advanced Level) examination. Secondly, it opens the door to a science degree for students even who followed subjects in commerce, arts or technology streams.

CINEC presently conducts a research under the World Bank grants about “Development of a Mechanism that leads to a Psychological Paradigm Shift in students’ Demand and Enrolment for various academic disciplines in the Tertiary Education in Sri Lanka”.
