Become a direct Australian University student for Foundation/Degree/Post Graduate programmes
Higher education is considered as one of the most important contributors to success in life. For some it is the single most important contributor. Students are investing more and more to get qualified from an international university, but few of them are getting the opportunity to enter to an international university.
The dream of every student and parent is to study directly in a degree programme, but due to a number of constraints, they are unable to fulfil their dream. University of Ballarat Sri Lanka Study Centre (UBSL) offers a chance to enrol directly into the University Foundation, Degree and Post Graduate Programs. UBSL offers courses directly moderated by the University and the student will be direct students of an Australian University from day one. The courses offered by the University start with the Foundation Course for O/L students and right up to Post Graduate studies.
University of Ballarat (UB) has around 25,000 international and domestic students. UB is committed to serving regional Victorian communities, yet, has a broad national and international outlook. UB offers the best of both worlds – combining a strong tradition of 140 years of tertiary education with the freedom and dynamism that comes with being a multi-sector University with close links to local industry and technology. UB has taken a path-breathing step in opening a study centre in Colombo – Sri Lanka in association with ATMC (Australian Technical & Management College). This campus endeavours to fulfil a long-standing requirement of the Sri Lankan students for offering International Education at an affordable cost and within their easy reach. The students are enrolled directly as UB students. The Academics in UBSL are moderated directly by UB in Australia. The students study the same course as their counterparts in Australia at less than 1/3rd of the cost. Parents are no longer required to go to the process of having millions of rupees for visa purposes. The student will get a world-recognized degree right here in Colombo.
