General Convocation 2017 – Message from the Vice-Chancellor

I am very much delighted to warmly welcome all the graduands who will be receiving their degrees at the Post Graduate Convocation of the University of Colombo on the 12th & 13th November 2018.

Dear students, keep in mind that you are a very fortunate group of students to receive your degrees from the University of Colombo, which is the best ranked University in Sri Lanka as we have been ranked among the top 1000 universities in the world by the Times Higher Education World Rankings and QS Rankings.  Education is a lifelong pursuit, that always demands further enhancement and a good degree is a basis for a strong foundation.  You have witnessed a staff that is constantly prepared to respond to your most pressing needs and to serve you with dedication to master the disciplines you selected.  I would like to invite all of you to join the alumni as you all could become excellent ambassadors and role models with high integrity and display moral values.

I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours and take this opportunity to greet and congratulate your parents and loved ones who stood by you in the past and who will continue to be on your side in the future. We are all proud of you today and hope that you will continue to make University of Colombo proud through your creativity, determination and hard work.
