As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sri Lankan’s including students have been affected hugely. Number of students applying to study overseas have come down. However, there is interest among students to go overseas for higher education. Foreign universities have started offering their programmes online and now these online study programmes are becoming popular. Foreign universities organized online webinars and awareness programmes regularly to update and inform students interested in pursuing higher education abroad. Although, webinars and other online meeting systems have been used extensively these methods are not very suitable to get required information and it is also not applicable to all of the target audience due to technical difficulties that have not yet been fixed.

As a leading overseas education consultant in Sri Lanka, International Scholar joined hands with all progressive foreign education partners to make most of the prevailing circumstances and serve a student community in a positive manner. In this respect we upskilled in staff at International Scholar to make the most of the current situation and continue to provide a very professional and valuable service to our clients. Now the staff at International Scholar are well accomplished in the techniques of using the internet and cyber space without a hindrance in services provided. As a result, we conducted the first ever virtual International Education Exhibition way back in July 2020. Since then we have come a long way and conducted many individual webinars and other information sessions.    

Since there are some students and parents who are not too keen to go overseas immediately we launched Sri Lanka Scholar website to provide information on study options available locally and study pathways that lead to overseas education.  

We have extensively used the social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, twitter, tiktok to draw students’ attention to opportunities available globally and locally.

With all these tools that are available to us at International Scholar we are in a strong position to help our students to realize their future education and career ambitions. We are very happy to counsel and provide guidance online at any time convenient. This includes university applications and visa submissions as well.
