EDULINK International Campus recently unveiled their new program and synergistic partnership that would offer 60 full and partial scholarships for participants in the fields of business, accounting and IT.

The launch was held on 28 June where students and parents interacted with campus officials to choose their preferred degree pathways and special offering provided by the campus.

Speaking at the press conference, EDULINK International Campus Director said, “At EDULINK, students play an important role and this is why we are very serious about our scholarship program. We view scholarships as an academic incentive for those who otherwise don’t have the means of pursuing their education.”

“Through the international program, we offer scholarships for students in Maldives, Pakistan, Uganda and Vietnam to come to Sri Lanka for their higher studies. The international scholarship program is also EDULINK’s way of uplifting the Sri Lankan education sector, shaping its future,” Weeramunda added.

EDULINK Consultants Group Academic Director Helen Mason professed, “The group’s mission is the provision of college and university education in the countries of Asia, Africa and Middle East by establishing academic collaboration with UK universities. EDULINK Consultants operates by providing all funds for the development of new business ventures and scholarship programs in various countries of selected regions.”

She further went on to say, “Our programs will incorporate the latest educational developments internationally. The local academic staff that we employ will be introduced to international teaching standards and will benefit from our program of continuing professional development.”

EDULINK offers internal British degrees from the prestigious Universities of Greenwich, University of Northampton and other leading UK universities, to Sri Lankan students under a range of subjects including business, accounting and finance and computer science. Students have access to more than 118,000 e-books and over 14,000 e-journals on various subjects.

Weeramunda stressed, “The Sri Lankan education sector is very competitive and new institutes are offering degrees from various local and foreign universities. EDULINK differs itself from the rest by offering a balanced higher education making the students time with us the  most invaluable investment for their future.”
