New Sri Lanka partnership for Oxford Brookes University
Tuesday, 17 November 2020
Oxford Brookes University is extending its international reach and impact with a new partnership in Sri Lanka, delivering degree programmes with the British College of Applied Studies (BCAS Campus).
BCAS is a leading vocational and tertiary provider in Sri Lanka and has over 3,500 students. Through the Oxford Brookes relationship it will be delivering a range of undergraduate top up programmes from health to construction.
Professor Alistair Fitt, Vice-Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University commented:
“Oxford Brookes is proud to partner with institutions of excellence around the world, tackling the challenges of modern society together. Sri Lanka is an important location both within the growing education hub of South Asia and in the wider region. Our internationally recognised teaching quality continues to inspire exceptional, ambitious graduates who pursue important and meaningful careers.
“We hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship, which will be of benefit both to our institutions and to Sri Lanka. We wish our students in Sri Lanka every success and look forward to guiding them on their journey.”
Mr Khemantha Eranga Weeramanthri, Chief Executive Officer of BCAS, added:
“Oxford Brookes University is our newest and most exciting partnership. It has a tradition of preparing employment-ready graduates for the professional world. Having access to contemporary programmes of study which are relevant to local and international job markets, BCAS can produce job-ready, effective graduates to industry and commerce.
“We are so proud to deliver top up degrees in Biomedical Science, Quantity Surveying, Nursing and Law, in collaboration with Oxford Brookes. On the path to becoming an education hub in the region, Sri Lanka has a broad vision and is open to quality global partnerships. It’s BCAS’ pleasure to bring Oxford Brookes University on board to facilitate that vision.”
Having a global perspective is intrinsic to Oxford Brookes’ values: the University has developed teaching partnerships in over 13 countries around the world to deliver courses and extend its impact.
