EDULINK believes that academic subjects and extra-curricular activities complement each other and develop well-rounded, socially skilled, students who will be sought after by employers in leading organisations both locally and globally, making them more viable in the job market. These activities also helps students mature socially and improves their interpersonal skills. They also learn to link academic knowledge with practical experience, thereby leading to a better understanding of their own abilities, talents, and career goals.
Director of EDULINK International Campus, Mr. Kanishka Weeramunda commented “We do not believe in just producing one-dimensional students in our campus but instead use extra-curricular activities to help to develop the student. We have found that students who are involved in extra-curricular pursuits tend to improve their academic grades. They become better organised in the classroom and demonstrate a heightened sense of confidence in all their pursuits that achieve better results. They learn useful new skills from their chosen activity and in integrating these activities into their everyday campus life, they learn critical thinking, teamwork and social skills. They develop relationships with their peers and learn how to lead others. All of these skills will be beneficial to them in life later and in the workplace.”
With their aim of offering graduates the very best in soft skills training and a well-rounded education, EDULINK International campus hopes to continue their quest in giving their students opportunities to engage in a range of well thought out activities that will in turn teach them the values of individual and group responsibility, endurance, competition and diversity and promote positive characteristics to bring out their hidden talents and the best of their abilities.
