Gateway College is proud to offer the largest, most comprehensive selection of educational choices - so parents and students can choose the best education programme for academic growth and success.
The choices are:
- 4 GCE Advanced Level subjects
- 3 GCE Advanced Level subjects and International Diploma in IT
- 3 GCE Advanced Level subjects and International Diploma in Business
- The International Foundation Programme
The range of subjects offered at Advanced Level Science, Business and Humanities sectors include Mathematics, Further Maths, Pure Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Business Studies, Accounts, Applied ICT, English Language & Literature and Psychology.
They have been arranged in a way where even uncommon combinations of subjects can be taken to suit students' future careers. Gateway, strongly encourages the students who wish to pursue demanding careers such as Medicine and Engineering to study four AL subjects. Students also have the option of taking 3 Advanced Level subjects along with a Diploma and thereby fast track their Degree studies.
Through this arrangement, they are also able to keep their options open until they complete the two years of study at Advanced Level where they could even opt for a different career to what they were planning at the commencement of their Advanced Level studies.
Gateway Graduate School, in partnership with NCC Education UK, offers a choice of two Diplomas. These Diplomas (International Diploma in Computer Studies - IDCS and International Diploma in Business - IDB) done over two years, is equivalent to the first year of a British Degree. The second year (leading to the Advanced Diploma) and the final year (leading to a Degree by the University of Wales, (UK) can be followed at the Gateway Graduate School. Therefore, taking this route, the student can obtain an internationally recognised British Degree, here in Sri Lanka, at a fraction of the cost of studying in the UK. Students also have the option of transferring to Universities in UK, USA or Australia following the completion of the Diploma.
Gateway College stands out among the international schools in Sri Lanka as it follows the English National Curriculum from Foundation Stage up to Advanced Level. The experienced and qualified staff of the school is supported with State-of-the-art facilities and resources. Gateway College enjoys accredited teaching center status from Edexcel-UK, Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and NCC Education-UK.

The firm, friendly and fare environment that prevails within the school help Gateway students to receive the finest global education within our unique cultural heritage.
