ICBT Campus introduces for the first time in the world, two UK Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) in 18 months for the same cost. A conventional Higher National Diploma's duration is again 18 months and to have two HNDs in the same duration will provide the students with greater higher educational options and wider employment opportunities while saving time and money to obtain another qualification.
The two HND Qualifications awarded to students at the same time are HND in Computing and HND in Software Development. These two qualifications are awarded by Edexcel International UK and the students after successful completion of these programmes have the option of completing the final years of a degree either in Sri Lanka or around the world in more than 115 universities including UK and Australia.
ICBT Campus is the leading Edexcel HND programme deliverer in the country and more than 80% of the students enrol due to recommendations made by existing students, friends or family. This is a testimony to the high quality standards maintained by ICBT Campus. To ensure high quality standards, ICBT Campus quality procedures are checked by Edexcel International UK and ICBT Campus is the only Edexcel delivering centre to be awarded the "A Grade" for five consecutive years in the country. "To be a champion is easy but to remain a champion is difficult" is an old phrase used by many and ICBT CAMPUS has remained an undisputed champion for a decade of excellence in providing higher education in the country, ever since its inception in 1999. ICBT Campus is an ISO 9001: 2000 certified campus and this certification is issued to organizations which maintain high quality standards.
ICBT Campus believes not just in producing graduates of high standard but also believes in moulding international leaders who in return will assist the society they live in and also the world at large. To inculcate leadership skills and soft skills, which are the essential ingredients to making productive citizens; for the first time in the country ICBT Campus incorporated CSR projects into the HND Curriculum over 3 years ago. The students have so far assisted many underprivileged rural area schools with resources and training. Many hospitals, orphanages and other underprivileged charitable organizations too have been provided with resources.
ICBT Campus' annual graduation is held in August and all the Vice Chancellors and heads of partner education awarding bodies participate to make it one of the most colourful graduation ceremonies of the country. Many other sports and extra curricular activities at ICBT Campus bring alive the skills needed to make the students intellectual and healthy at the same time, both qualities needed for productive citizens of a country.
"With thousands of IT graduates graduating annually, obtaining two HND IT Qualifications at the same time will provide the students an extra advantage over others, greatly increasing their employment opportunities and higher educational pathways" said Mr. Anura Gamage - General Manager (Marketing) of ICBT Campus.
