About FIT

The Foundation in Information Technology (FIT) programme aims at enhancing the literacy and competency in using basic computer applications together with analytical thinking and communicational skills required for school leavers.

FIT is a pre-degree programme that prepares students who are willing to read for their first degree. It is designed for anyone irrespective of the study streams they have followed in Advanced Level Recent statistics show many students who register for degree programmes fail due to lack of ICT competency, language skills and mathematical background. This tendency is very high in external degree programmes. Hence, FIT was designed to address these issues of undergraduate studies.

FIT is also a certification programme for employment seekers or school leavers to justify their knowledge and skills in ICT for their future endeavors. University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC), which is the most reputed higher education institute in the field of computer science and Information Communication Technology in Sri Lanka, will issue these certificates once you successfully complete relevant assessment of the FIT programme.
