American Education Centre Limited (AECL), which operates under the brand name ANC Education, was established in 2002 envisioning to be the most preferred choice for tertiary education in Sri Lanka. Moving forward with that vision, over the years, ANC has established affiliations and partnerships with reputed higher education institutions around the world, including the University of West London (UWL) for postgraduate programs, Northwood University (NU) of USA for the American Degree Completion Program in Sri Lanka and for the US Transfer Program. Apart from that, the ANC Foundation and Diploma programs provide students access to study their degree in major Australian Universities.

Dr Punarjeeva Karunanayake, Chief Executive Officer/ Executive Director of ANC Education said, “Since the beginning of our operation in Sri Lanka with the goal of providing quality international tertiary education options for local students, ANC Education has now grown to be the country’s largest provider of trans-national education for Sri Lankan students. With the best interest of students in mind, we are indeed delighted to continue our long-standing partnership with EDEX Expo and showcase all the opportunities available to students who are in pursuit of quality international higher education.”

At present, ANC Education offers world-class, quality education to local and foreign students through its various local subsidiaries and associates such as Wycherley International School, Regent International School, Net Assist International, Modern Montessori International (MMI) and PATHE Study Medicine. Through these subsidiaries, ANC provides students access to world recognized universities in America, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, Eastern Europe and Malaysia.

Further expanding the horizons of Sri Lankan students, ANC recently partnered with Eurasia Institute to give local students the opportunity to gain access to government funded German universities with a 100% tuition fee-waiver. The universities included in the program are The Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau, Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, University of Applied Sciences Jena, Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences and Martin Luther University of Halle – Wittenberg.
