“Our students quickly organized themselves to attend the online sessions.  Lecturers have adapted their teaching strategies accordingly.

“Students have expressed a high degree of satisfaction with the online teaching and have indicated their appreciation for the hard work of our teaching and administrative staff in making the transition to online learning both quick and effective,” Dr. Robertson said.



The best of both Sri Lanka and Australia

This also means that you have full access to the Canvas online system from the start. All of this helps to make the transition as smooth as it can be” explained Senal Ranaweera who transferred to Melbourne in order to complete his degree in International Business.
