President's Message

Calwest University was established to provide affordable high-quality American degrees to students living in all parts of the world who deserve a quality education, but were until recently unable to obtain such due to both costs and the tyranny of distance.

The innovative approach adopted by Calwest is that whilst the course content is solely designed and delivered by Calwest faculty (and the syllabus outlines of the courses are benchmarked with the courses of other World-class universities that have both face-to-face and online offerings); it uses a sophisticated learning platform enabling students to have prompt feedback to all their assessment tasks and final examinations.  Therefore students can learn at their own pace without being hampered by more structured approaches to the student-teacher interface.

All the Course Assessments will be done by Calwest professors. These assessments include online exams, assignments, challenge exams and credit for prior learning. The learning of students undertaking all modes of assessment is based on the syllabuses of courses offered at Calwest, and listed in its catalog.

Due to the international reach of online learning, Calwest hopes to cater to student in areas of the world in which opportunities of quality educational delivery at affordable prices is not available. As such, students can work towards obtaining a recognized degree at a substantially lower cost than that usually associated with American degree programs.

We hope you will enjoy the experience of moving from ‘Teaching to Learning’ at Calwest.

To all prospective students, I extend a warm welcome!


Professor Janek Ratnatunga, PhD MBA (Bradford, UK), FCA, CPA, CMA
