Foundation in Information Technology

FIT is a pre-degree programme that prepares students who are willing to read for their first degree.

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. Hence, Mathematics and English Language for Information Communication Technology (ICT) are considered as two other important supporting subject domains.

At the same time, FIT is an alternative qualification for students who do not possess A/L qualifications to enroll into the Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) programme. However, those who register for BIT should have completed studies up to Ordinary Level in school curriculum.

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.
