Guaranteed Paid Student Internship (GPSI) Program
ANC students are encouraged to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field of study through ANC’s Guaranteed Paid Student Internship (GPSI) program, a partnership between ANC and some of the leading brands in Sri Lanka, including MAS Holding, Virtusa, Samsung, DIMO, Hilton, Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts, and Heyleys. “We have observed that students gain transferable skills essential for employment through internships. We all want suitable manpower with hands-on experience and employable skills, such as communication, adaptability, positive attitude, leadership, willingness to learn, integrity, teamwork, etc. to facilitate the growth of our organizations. We are more than happy to welcome ANC undergrads and postgrads as interns, as it is most definitely a win-win situation”, says Mr. SHANTHA KURUMBALAPITIYA, COO – SERENDIB LEISURE MANAGEMENT LIMITED (SUBSIDIARY OF HEMAS HOLDINGS PLC).
Psychology students are also encouraged to have real world experience in an environment structured to support their learning goals. Past students have interned in hospitals, schools, NGOs, government organizations, HR departments, etc. Along the way, faculty advisors work closely with them and provide feedback to help them identify opportunities for further growth. It has been observed that 7 out of 10 internships result in a full time job offer.
