University Transfer Program - Sri Lanka

John F. Kennedy University operates an extension program at American National College (ANC), Colombo, Sri Lanka. This relationship is a formal collaboration based on a cooperative agreement developed in 2012 between John F. Kennedy University and American National College.

Under this agreement, John F. Kennedy University offers lower division general education courses at the ANC campus that are taught by approved University faculty. Students who take these courses earn academic credit through JFK University transferable to other colleges and universities in the United States.

About ANC Education

ANC Education has been providing quality education in Sri Lanka for ten years and is Sri Lanka’s largest education conglomerate currently in operation. Established in 2002 with the vision to be the first choice in education in Sri Lanka, ANC Education is the leader in  private education in Sri Lanka, offering a full spectrum of education programs, from pre-school and secondary school through to university undergraduate and postgraduate programs, as well as Executive Education programs and IT Professional Vendor Certification Programs.

About the American University Transfer Program

For the past ten years ANC Education, a member of Sri Lanka’s largest private education group, has led the way in developing affordable pathways to America’s best universities with the American University Transfer Program. The American University Transfer Program at ANC allows students to complete up to three years of their degree in Sri Lanka before going abroad to finish.

The advantage of such savings is that a genuine American education and all the benefits it brings are within the reach of a much greater number of Sri Lankan students. With such up-front savings, parents are also able to afford to send their children to a better American university, thereby increasing not only the quality of their education but also their long term career prospects.

The American University Transfer Program at ANC will also ensure that students are well prepared for their American education experience. American education emphasizes problem solving, research, critical thinking, communication, and other skills that students may need to develop before going overseas. Since approximately 90% of the ANC faculty is internationally qualified, students will be learning from experienced professors familiar with the students’ future education environment. This seamless transfer will help ensure academic success once students move overseas to finish their degrees. They will be a couple of years older, more mature, and with university level experience - all important factors in their continued success. Furthermore, many first and second year classes in Western universities are very large in size - students can find themselves lost in large auditoriums with hundreds of students. At ANC the average class size is around 30 to 35, meaning that students will receive a superior, more personal education experience in the critical early stages of their degree studies.
