Faculty of Graduate Studies

Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka (SUSL) offers its graduate qualifications through the Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS). The availability of several non-traditional, yet technologically influential courses leading to graduate qualifications have left a positive mark upon the university, highlighting the distinctiveness of FGS-SUSL within the national university system. Our potential to synthesise research based knowledge with the universal knowledge pool will add more value to the uniqueness that has so far characterised Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka. These efforts, we believe, may not only help us define what Sabaragamuwa has contributed to human civilization in the past, but also what Twenty First Century humanity may gain from us in the future.
