ESOFT students dominated this year’s British Computer Society (BCS – Chartered Institute for IT) Annual Graduation Ceremony yet again with Dr. Induruwa Udith Weerakkody, Mario Chethana Lakshan de Silva and Madara Premawardhana carrying away the World and Sri Lanka Prizes for the BCS Post Graduate Diploma (PGD), Diploma and Certificate levels respectively. As the world’s largest training provider of BCS courses, ESOFT has produced an outstanding 55 plus World and Sri Lankan prize winners to date and is Sri Lanka’s only accredited course provider for the internationally recognised qualification.
The event was held on Sunday, 16th October at the BMICH with Harin Fernando, Minister of Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructure attending as the Chief Guest. The Guest of Honour was Ray Long, President of BCS. A gala Graduation Ball was held at the BMICH Banquet Hall later the same day. In addition to the student awards, ESOFT also received a Gold award in the Large Scale Institute category for the third consecutive year and ESOFT METRO CAMPUS Kandy was recognised as the Best BCS Regional Centre of the Year.
The BCS HEQ qualification is the fastest path to a UK Degree level qualification – namely, the three levels of the BCS can be completed within 18 to 20 months which is half the time that one would invest in a Degree programme. Thanks to its modular design, students have the flexibility to follow it in different ways. Some choose to study for either the Certificate and Diploma levels in one sitting or the Diploma and PGD levels in one sitting, thereby reducing the overall time to complete the programme. There are two examination sittings per year – April and October. This too enhances the opportunity to complete the qualification at the earliest.
Established in 2000, ESOFT is the largest private sector higher education network in Sri Lanka due to an extensive island-wide network of ESOFT Metro Colleges, ESOFT Regional Campuses and ESOFT Metro Campuses.
