About Us

The Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) is the only National University which offers a wide range of academic programmes of study through the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode.  

The flexibility and ease of access of this system has enabled the University to cater to the needs of prospective students from all parts of the country, regardless of their level of formal education, socio-economic background or age. It offers Certificate, Diploma, Degree and Postgraduate Degree programmes in a wide range of disciplines through its five Faculties, namely, Education, Engineering Technology, Health Sciences, Humanities & Social Science and Natural Sciences and the Postgraduate Institute of English (PGIE).

The Open University takes special interest in fostering research and scholarship, and is a pioneer in research in Open and Distance Learning.
