Gone are the days when one thought of finishing education to start working. Today, by necessity, education is life-long. Some of us may finish university education before looking for a job; others may join the workforce before going to the university. It's our choice. Either way, all of us can benefit from higher education. Indeed, we ought to.
Work - study balance is the buzzword today amongst the employed. Work - study balance is what we need to achieve. Neglecting one will have a negative impact on the other. Finding a job is one thing. Developing a career has become a truly challenging task in the increasingly competitive business environment. With rapid advances in knowledge and skills and technology, there is no alternative to ensuring satisfactory career progression and consequent quality in life other than keeping oneself up-to-date and equipped with recognised educational qualifications.
Asia Pacific Institute of Information technology (APIIT)-Sri Lanka, a leading higher education institute established in partnership with APIIT-Malaysia and Staffordshire University-UK, is committed to high standards and quality of education to produce internationally recognised computing and business professionals.
The Institute now opens up opportunities for those in employment to complete a British degree in Computing/ IT or Business Management from internationally renowned Staffordshire University and keep abreast of the latest developments in these fields. Those with professional qualifications such as ABE, CIM CIMA, HND, BCS, and ACS (part or fully qualified) are entitled to exemptions and advanced standing.
Higher education institutions need to change with the times to suit the changing profile of students and life styles. APIIT - Sri Lanka as a dynamic and student-focussed higher education institution offers part-time internal study programmes to meet primarily the growing education needs to the employed. The programmes are structured to provide maximum flexibility: delivery is in the evenings and weekends; modular structure allows students to pace their learning to suit time availability; students may complete part of the programme, take a break if necessary and resume studies later; and several easy payment options are available to suit one's income.
APIIT School of Computing offers a diploma and a degree programme in Computing for part-time students; equal prominence given to theory and practical work is a distinctive feature of these programmes.
APIIT Business School offers a diploma and a degree programme in Business Administration/ Management. While these programmes are designed to cover comprehensively all areas of business, the programme content is advantageously integrated with the theory and practice of information technology. This unique blend of business with IT meets the demands of the industry and commerce and gives APIIT-Sri Lanka graduates a cutting edge in their professional career.
Part-time students may also study both Business Management and IT in the Business Information Technology degree programme designed to meet the needs of the modern job market where business takes place in an IT environment.
Emphasis on project work that can be integrated into one's employment is a distinctive feature of all degree programmes. This is where one's career blends seamlessly with the pursuit of education providing synergy and integrating learning into practice. Further, the programmes attract students from diverse backgrounds in Commerce and Industry. These students bring their own experiences to the classroom discussions and make the entire teaching/ learning process dynamic and closely linked with the practices in the real world. Therefore, it is no surprise that students who complete their studies while working often demonstrate superior learning outcomes.
You can be assured of modern facilities, an environment conducive to academic pursuits, convenient academic schedules, flexible payment options and a panel of qualified and competent lecturers to conduct the teaching programmes.
