Enrol at UTS Insearch SL pathway to University in Australia

With classes commencing in October, you could enrol at UTS Insearch Sri Lanka, the new pathway college to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia’s top ranking young university.

At the recent launch, attended by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, it was noted that the institute would provide students with a pathway to one of Australia’s most innovative and technology focused universities, located in Sydney.

Two young Sri Lankans who have already enjoyed the UTS Insearch advantage are Erandhi Lyanage and Vihan Wakista, both from Colombo. Erandhi completed a Diploma of Science at UTS Insearch before earning her Bachelor of Medical Science degree at UTS. She now works at Sydney’s renowned Kolling Institute of Medical Research, investigating neurogenetic diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease.

Vihan is currently studying at UTS for his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours) degree, after completing a Diploma of Engineering at UTS Insearch. Both speak highly of the UTS Insearch pathway to UTS.

Erandhi says, “I really liked the transition from diploma to degree because I was able to go straight into second year, and I was doing the same work as first-year students who went directly to UTS.” Vihan, who has already done an internship, appreciates the practical, real-world approach to learning. “I feel like UTS and UTS Insearch are both so focused on real life applications that I gained hands-on learning opportunities, rather than just theory and studying books,” says Vihan.

Students in Sri Lanka can now enjoy the benefits of a UTS Insearch pathway without the need to travel to Australia for their first year. The new, state-of-the-art campus on Thurstan Road, Colombo, would offer UTS Foundation Studies, and first-year university equivalent programs in Business, Engineering, and Information Technology and is taking enrolments now. These programs would help students develop the academic skills and knowledge for success at university, using teaching and learning styles typical of international universities.

The new institute is offering a range of scholarships totalling US$60,000 for the October intake, including 10 full-fee scholarships for the top students who commence their studies in October 2019.

In addition, UTS would offer scholarships to students who complete their diploma program with UTS Insearch Sri Lanka, and continue to pursue their Bachelor’s degree in Sydney.
