International students studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University partner institution in Sri Lanka joined other Cardiff School of Management students for their graduation ceremony in the Wales Millennium Centre.

The students had studied at the International College of Business and Technology (ICBT), a leading tertiary education provider in Sri Lanka.  The partnership with Cardiff Met was launched in June 2010 with students in Sri Lanka studying Cardiff Met franchise degrees in BA Software Development, BA Business and Management Studies and MBA, with MSc Mobile Technologies, MSc Information Technology and BA Educational Studies and Early Childhood Studies joining the course profile starting this September.

The students joined the main Cardiff-based cohort for the special graduation day, taking the opportunity to visit the Cardiff School of Management campus, and to experience the highlights of the city.

After the ceremony, the Sri Lankan graduates were welcomed by Vice-Chancellor Professor Antony Chapman and Chair of Governors, Barbara Wilding. The presence of graduates from Cardiff Met international campuses demonstrates the University internationalisation strategy which is supported by strong strategic partnerships such as that with ICBT. 

Speaking about the Sri Lankan awards ceremony, Professor Antony Chapman said: “We were delighted that our ICBT students could travel to the UK to attend the ceremony in Cardiff and be part of our Cardiff School of Management graduation ceremony. This occasion demonstrates Cardiff Met’s strength in transnational education and the success our students bring to such collaboration”.

“The Cardiff Met and ICBT partnership offers high quality opportunities to students in Sri Lanka. We wish all the students well in their future careers.”
