Horizon: A campus with a differenceView(s):
Four years ago, Mr.Upul Daranagama, CEO of Horizon Campus and Horizon College International envisaged a center of learning, where students received pre-school, secondary and higher education. Thus Horizon College international and Horizon Campus were established in the beautiful, stress free environment and landscape of Malabe. Horizon Campus was inaugurated two years back and has thus far delivered diploma/degree programmes in the fields of Psychology and Education. The latest addition to its portfolio is the University of London International Programmes.
We at Horizon have taken the responsibility to prepare students for seven degrees offered by the world renowned University of London, within the axis of the International Programmes. Amongst the many degrees offered by the University of London, we have taken the task of providing lectures and support services for Law, Economics, Banking & Finance, Politics & International Relations, Accounting & Finance, Economics & Management and Accounting & Law. Not only are we offering the LL.B. and 6 BSc degrees, but also have recruited a vibrant and enthusiastic panel of lecturers, under whose guidance, the degree programme could be completed within a period of three years. The lecture panel in particular, comprises academics and professionals who have the knowledge and practical experience, in their respective fields, and who are prepared to mentor students through the period of study.
The degree programme of the University of London is conducted completely under the guidance of the University, where the subject guides, course syllabuses and examinations are prepared and assessed by staff of the University itself. While studying for the UoL degree is a challenging task, we at Horizon have planned to have the classes during the weekend, providing ample opportunity the students self-study. The added advantage of the programme schedule at Horizon lies in the fact that students are also able to continue with a degree, while being employed at the same time, which sits well with the “inclusive” policy of the University, where students in any walk of life being encouraged to study for a UoL degree, at any stage in their professional life.
The benefits that a student following a UoL degree at Horizon Campus enjoys are many. Apart from having the opportunity of concurrently work/study, according to the class schedule at Horizon, another very pertinent benefit of the programme is that one gets the opportunity of studying for an internal degree of the University of London, within your home environs. Not only does this give one a comparatively huge financial saving, but also provides a student with the peace of mind to face the challenges thrown by the degree programme, while not worrying on other external factors such as accommodation, cost of living, transport etc.. Studying for a University of London undergraduate degree, not only provides for a financial saving, but also gives one the possibility of following a Masters or a PhD, which is always encouraged by the University of London. Furthermore, The University of London LL.B. degree is one that is recognized by the Sri Lanka Law College, as being a direct entry qualification for a student who wishes to be qualified as an Attorney at Law within another 1 ˝ years. This certainly negates the stress of sitting an entrance exam, which has become very competitive over the years.
Why study at horizon? The raison d?ętre for setting up Horizon Campus is based on offering the best possible educational service which is internationally recognized and qualitatively par excellence to students in a university style teaching-learning environment. This alone makes Horizon Campus stand out against all other private educational service providers in Sri Lanka. The location and the state of the art facilities at the campus offer a congenial environment to implement the holistic concept of education. The value additions of in house accommodation, transport facilities for campus students, facilities for sports activities, added with the qualified panel of lecturers, provide a unique and distinctive benefit for prospective students, who desire a “true campus atmosphere” of higher education. This forms the very heart of the philosophy of education at Horizon Campus, which is a conceptually profound deviation from the traditional “study center”, confined to mere intra-mural lectures.
