One of the featured highlights of GUT is that student may enroll with simple process and start the programme immediately. While following GUT the student would have ample time to prepare documents, English proficiency test & financials related to admission and visa connected to the university abroad. By doing this a student would wisely use the interim period from ALevel exams to the visa application date which is normally 4-6 months. By studying GUT student not only save one year of their life but also save over Rs.8-10 million from the expenses they would have incurred during the first year abroad.
Further the students could always opt to complete the full Degree in Sri Lanka.
