Consul General Kapila Fonseka met Ms Georgina McCann, Director – International Education of the Department of Jobs, Precincts & Regions in the State of Victoria, Australia.
Nearly ten thousand Sri Lankan students in the Victorian higher education institutes make it the fourth largest and a fast growing international student community in Victoria. Majority of them excel in their education, both at under graduate and post graduate levels. Contribution of Sri Lankan students, particularly to the research and education at the post graduate levels is significant. Ms McCann looks after the services provided to the international students including those ensuring their safety and security. The ‘Study Melbourne Student Centre’ (http://study.melbourne) is one of their services that Sri Lankan students can visit to obtain information and services.
