First Class (Honours) - BSc in Economics and Finance

I am delighted to have graduated with first-class honors in Bsc. Economics and Finance degree from the University of London under Royal Institute of Colombo. I have been able to secure a world prize for mathematics 2 and an Academic achievement award from the University of London in my 1st year of study.
The learning environment, educational facilities, and most importantly the academic and non-academic staff are to be praised for all success stories in the university. With constant guidance and motivation, lecturers at RIC pushed us to reach our potentials and even achieve goals that we never thought would be possible.
During the 3 years of study, we were not only encouraged to engage in academic activities but also to participate in extra-curriculum activities such as annual sports events, cultural events. This opened an important doorway for me and one of my colleagues when we participated in a competition organized by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) this year, for which we applied through RIC. As winners of this competition, we got the opportunity to participate in the IMF annual meetings in October. As a badminton player during my years of schooling, various sports events conducted by the university helped me keep alive the sports personality within me.

The experience at RIC has helped me mold into a better rounded professional ready to face the job market.
