Who We Are
Solutions for Success
Having worked with various Sri Lankan and UK education agencies for over 5 years placing over 150 Sri Lankan students in UK universities, and once myself being an international student in the UK, I decided to use my skills and experience to set up my own company for student recruitment and support services. Lankan Students UK places Sri Lankan students in UK Universities and colleges who have a tier 4 license to sponsor international students, including top Russell Group universities. As a registered UK company, we have our office based in York, England.

Why use us
We go above and beyond to support our students at all levels. While our competitors in Sri Lanka only provide visa advice, help in preparing documentation for the visa, and help with arranging paperwork for university admissions, we will do all of these and also look after them when they arrive in the UK. We offer additional support such as help finding accommodation, airport pickups and assisting with finding part time jobs. Unlike our competitors, we also have a presence in both Sri Lanka and the UK, which helps us to support students on both ends of their journey.
Our Experience in International Education
Having previously been an international student from Sri Lanka studying in the UK, I personally as the Managing Director of Lankan Students UK Ltd understand the difficulties and challenges of studying abroad, and the importance of streamlining the processes for student’s wellbeing.
After obtaining my Diploma in Accountancy and Business awarded by ACCA UK, and a Master's Degree in Leadership and Management awarded by York St John University, I worked for a number of years at Educational Excellence E2 UK Ltd, and also prior to coming to UK I perform my duties in the capacity of Student Enrolment Manager at ANC Education Sri Lanka. All such job roles involved handling the visa process and providing visa advice, communicating with the UK Immigration Department and CISA to clarify issues for international students, and coordinating accommodation and other arrangements for international students. At these companies I worked were in partnership with many universities in UK helped me to understand in depth their admission requirements and procedures.
Understanding these, the entire admissions process for international study, and the problems international students face after they have arrived and begun their studies, led me to create Lankan Students UK. Our free service ensures Sri Lankans wishing to study in the UK receive comprehensive guidance and support over their entire academic journey. We care about our students and their experiences, and will always go above and beyond to ensure they have a positive, safe and educationally successful UK experience.
