About us

Success is a journey, not a destination”. This saying is undeniably true of IAPS’s successful journey as an education provider which has come full-circle recently.

Our story began in 2015, when IAPS College was established by its Founder, Within a short span of time, IAPS became a popular household name as a private higher education institution in Sri Lanka.
