Victoria Higher Education Campus rebrands

Victoria Higher Education Campus (VHEC) was rebranded as Edulink International Campus (EIC).

It will offer world-class degrees from the University of Greenwich and other leading UK universities to Sri Lankan students. Outlining the rationale for the rebranding, Campus Director, Kanishka Weeramunda said, "We have been in the Sri Lankan market for three years and with an in-depth understanding of the Sri Lankan education sector, we adopted the name Edulink to build a global image."

"We will contribute to the Sri Lankan education sector with our international scholarship programs. We are holding discussions with the Government and a few other countries regarding this," he said.

"We hope to implement a scholarship program for children of Security Forces personnel to honour their services," said Weeramunda.

"EIC's portfolio includes BA programs in Business, Accounting and Finance, IT and Masters programs in International Business and Computer Science. As most of our students will graduate and look for jobs by 2018, we are in search of courses that will suit the job market at that time," he said.

"We will launch Engineering courses in 2016 and also include Business Psychology programs since it has a high demand among organisations," he said.

CFO, Edulink, Consultants and Financial Director, Edulink International Campus, Bharath Ratteshwal said, "Edulink International Campus is fully owned by Edulink Consultants, a multinational higher education institution which has been in operation since 2004."

"Edulink Consultants is the leading company in the Edulink Group based in Dubai and is a multi-faceted educational services provider that has built strategic partnerships with renowned academic institutions from across the globe. Our vision is to provide quality education at an affordable price," he said.

The EIC campus equipped for 1,000 students offers state-of-the-art facilities. These include a library, IT laboratories and wi-fi accessibility across the entire campus.

"The minimum qualification of our academic staff is a Masters Degree and a minimum of five years' experience. The part-time faculty is one of our greatest strengths as most of them come from the industry and have a lot of exposure and higher academic qualifications," Ratteshwal said.

"Non-academic staff are equally qualified with professional qualifications or a higher academic qualification and a number of years experience in the same capacity," he said.

EIC works closely with the Ministry of Higher Education and hopes to become the hub of excellence in the region. The campus in Colombo has students from countries such as Nigeria and the Maldives.

Having developed close partnerships with the British Council and the British Computer Society in Sri Lanka, EIC interacts with leading employers to enhance employment prospects for graduates. They also provide internships for students.
