The International Office at SLIIT values the significance of an increasingly interconnected world.
Through “Internationalisation”, we bring global perspectives to the SLIIT community, raising transnational awareness, to nurture an environment that is truly global and comprehensive in character, in our teaching, learning, impactful research, and outreach.
Our mission is to supply exceptional individuals for leadership roles in the global economy, through empowering our students to be able to shape, not only their own futures, but their country’s, as well as a better, shared future for the world. Our curriculum and programs, faculty and student body, are all chosen towards provision of a global perspective. Towards internationalisation, we strive to continuously develop our standards, through fostering enhanced knowledge exchange through our international collaborations, visiting scholars, as well as developing the international expertise of our faculty and research areas.
Further, our ever-growing International Student Community at SLIIT, with students from SAARC countries, promotes teaching and learning that is immersed in an exciting cross-cultural environment, providing international exposure and preparation for global careers. International students can expect their time at SLIIT to be exciting, challenging and deeply rewarding, with opportunities to get involved in the lively student and educational culture, as well as the development of interpersonal and communication abilities.
Over the years, SLIIT has established partnerships with a multitude of leading universities around the world, to provide our students with seamless progression to our partner universities, and prospects for gaining meaningful access to the business practices and networks of other countries. Moreover, our Student Mobility programme provides the opportunity to study at our partner universities for a semester, as part of a student exchange.
Graduates leave SLIIT with lifelong contacts, an appreciation of business responsibility to community and society, and a recognition and understanding of multicultural context of today’s business world. Our relationships with leading global companies enhance the career paths of our graduates, and their opportunities evolve further as graduates are welcomed into a strong and vibrant alumni and friends’ network, which is developing both locally and internationally.
