Masters in Development Studies, University of Colombo
“I am very happy to being awarded the “Sri Lankan Government Scholarships Award for Foreign Students”. It is a good opportunity to study at the University of Colombo: one of the prominent universities of Sri Lanka. Within my short period of stay, I experienced very interesting lectures and a helpful academic environment.
I was selected to follow a Masters programme in Development studies which is a very interesting subject. I think it is a worthy subject for developing countries, as the South Asian region is being developed.
I have fallen in love with this Island, development, historical places and the greenery. I am very much impressed with kind hospitality and the smiling faces of Sri Lankans. Sometimes I forget that I am in a different country. Almost the same culture and religion as Nepal, it is very easy to be involved in day to day life and get closer to the people of Sri Lanka.
The plan and role of the Ministry of Higher Education and the University of Colombo in welcoming foreign students is appreciated and I hope this University would be the education hub for those who are seeking a bright future.”
