SLTC – Deakin Intake Now On: Four New Degrees Offered by Prestigious Deakin University, Australia

Sri Lanka’s foremost provider of quality foreign education in technology and related disciplines, Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC), has opened its 2021 intake coinciding with the institution’s partnership with Prestigious Deakin University, Australia.
Through this partnership, STLC will provide onsite ‘study support’ for four highly sought after Deakin University degrees, namely, Bachelor of Artificial Intelligence (3 years), Bachelor of Computer Science (3 years), Bachelor of Information Technology (3 years) & Bachelor of Software Engineering (4 years).
All of the teaching will entirely be via Deakin’s Cloud Campus. The SLTC – Deakin collaboration was initiated by Prof Bas Baskaran, a distinguished academic of Sri Lankan heritage, serving as the Associate Dean – International &Partnerships, Faculty of Science, Engineering & Built Environment at Deakin University.
SLTC will help to facilitate an authentic ‘Deakin Experience’ via the Deakin Cloud Campus which has a student population exceeding 60,000 at present. Deakin Cloud Students receive the same recognition and access to resources as on-campus students from day one.
Eligible students who wish to join this unique pathway to transfer to Deakin in Australia will be guaranteed a 50% tuition fee bursary for the first year of the above mentioned degrees (and the first two years of the Software Engineering degree) for the upcoming 2021 March and July intakes.
The Founder President/ CEO Eng. Ranjith Rubasinghe: “Deakin University has decided to offer these discounts as a way to incentivise school-leavers to pursue higher education notwithstanding the challenges posed by the pandemic. We are excited to make education affordable as well as accessible while also making sure the quality is not compromised; in fact we hope to pursue more meaningful collaboration within the year to expand our offering to cater to diverse interests.”
Meanwhile SLTC also launched their Center for Global Education (CGE) early this year to serve as an education center for faculty & students. The unit is responsible for globalizing research, teaching & outreach missions, facilitating direct transfers and assisting students upon request to leverage competencies to meet the global expectation.
Deakin University is highly competent with more than 40 years of distance & online teaching excellence. It is ranked in the top 1% universities worldwide (Shanghai Rankings World University Rankings). SLTC is the first research-based, residential, private university with strong industry links locally & internationally offering a wide array of Ministry of Education & University Grants Commission-approved degrees and diplomas.
