APIIT Sri Lanka Awards & Launch Ceremony
APIIT (Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology) Sri Lanka was proud to host an event which celebrated the achievements of students who had completed the NCUK International Foundation Year in the 2021-22 academic year, whilst simultaneously launching the NCUK International Year One.
Guests at the event included graduating students, Study Centre staff, parents and more as they came together to congratulate APIIT on completing their first year of delivering NCUK qualifications.
The award ceremony section of the event included a presentation of certificates which were given to graduating students on stage, highlighting their hard work and success following their own completion of the NCUK International Foundation Year.
The event itself was led by senior members of APIIT’s team including Dr Hasuli Perera, Head of APIIT Business School and Foundation Programs, Mr Gamindu Hemachandra, Chief Academic Officer, Mr Bandula Egodage, Chairman and Dr Chathura Warnasuriya, Head of APIIT Law School. David Hodgson, NCUK Associate Director, Asia Pacific also joined via live link.
Along with the awards ceremony, the event was used to officially launch the NCUK International Year One.
Speeches were delivered by members of staff including Mr Bandula Egodage (pictured left), informing guests about the International Year One and the benefits of studying the qualification with APIIT. From next year, APIIT will be offering this qualification to students, giving International Foundation Year graduates or other qualified students the option to study the first year of their undergraduate degree in Sri Lanka, before progressing to degree courses at NCUK University Partners in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
APIIT has had a truly successful first year running NCUK qualifications and we’re delighted that they are expanding their offering to deliver the NCUK International Year One in 2023. Congratulations to all graduating students and good luck to those who are currently studying their first year of their undergraduate degree. Thank you to all staff at APIIT who have put together this fantastic event.
