Student Service Center
We want to make sure that every individual who comes to KIU receives all the support they require. Our Student Services Centre at the Office of the Registrar is the single point of contact for your administrative dealings with us, including questions relating to finance, immigration, student ID cards, library memberships, text books, exams or graduation.
Counseling Service Unit
At the KIU counseling unit our objective is to address your needs as promptly as possible. Our Counselors possess extensive experience in providing counsel for students and as such you will be in safe hands. We understand that higher education can be stressful at times and this is why we have taken the trouble to establish one of the best counseling service units available in the country. We are proud to recognise that our counselors’ levels of service far exceed the levels in the industry and this ensures you will be assisted by a counselor who not only counsels but truly cares about your wellbeing as well as your academic progression. It’s our objective to ensure that you are in the best possible environment to continue your studies and make your stay in Sri Lanka one of the most memorable experiences you will have in your life regardless of your ethnic background, gender, race, age, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship, or disability.
