Higher Education and Employability

RIC graduates are highly employable. Students have a wide range of options available to pursue after completing their degree. They can either choose to find employment, or they can pursue their Masters degree or PhD in a prestigious university. Our students have gone on to complete their postgraduate degrees in universities such as the London School of Economics, University of Cambridge and other high-ranked universities across the world. Students who wish to work straight after completing their degree can do so – graduates of RIC are now working in prominent positions in their respective fields in both local and international organizations such as the United Nations, consultancies (including PriceWater Coopers, Deloitte, KPMG amongst others), prestigious law firms in Sri Lanka, and the state sector. In 2017, Sachintha Wijegunasekara from RIC obtained the Vice Chancellors Scholarship from Deakin University, Australia. This prestigious scholarship was offered to only one student in the world. Sachintha went on to completing his Bachelor of Biomedical Science degree at Deakin University, Australia.
