IIHS provides global education granting students a passport to the world

International Institute of Health Science (IIHS), Sri Lanka’s premier and leading healthcare
education institute renowned for the high-quality education in Sri Lanka has unceasingly and
skillfully navigated through the deep waters to elevate the levels of private tertiary education
to amazing heights in the country.
Offering recognized international qualifications from credible universities, IIHS has opened the
doorway to many students, granting them the opportunity to not only complete their studies
but also to work in other countries around the world, thereby rewarding them with a global
passport to a new life. More than 400 students have successfully completed their studies and
sought employment in first world countries like Australia, Finland and UK.
As an institute driven solely at providing world class education, IIHS has made special
concessions to ensure that education remains unaffected despite the adverse economic
conditions that the world is faced with. IIHS offers courses with a 40-60% reduction in course
fee, despite most international universities increasing the fees. This is further enhanced with
easy payment schemes and suitable bank loans with extended settlement and easy payment
Considering the current situation where everyone has moved unto the virtual environment,
IIHS also offers free data packs as an additional support mechanism. The administration of IIHS
will also look at the possibility of extending payment deadlines as well as rescheduling payment
plans to ease the financial burdens of the students.
Last year, 350 government employed nurses along with 100 other students graduated from IIHS
with international bachelor’s degree qualifications from world recognised universities. IIHS
offers Doctorate Masters and Bachelors courses in Nursing, Bachelors of Physiotherapy,
Bachelors of Bio Medical Sciences and MBA in Healthcare Administration. The healthcare and
speciality nurses’ sector has the most demand globally.
All students are provided with much needed English language competency qualifications which
is a pre-requisite when it comes to working and living overseas.

Sharing his thoughts, Dr.Kithsiri Edirisinghe – CEO/Co-founder – IIHS, said “We are focused on
providing our students with a global education which will open up multiple doorways to help
them achieve successful careers. IIHS is a hub, much like a modern and well-equipped airport
that facilitates all activities, guaranteeing 100% satisfaction in every aspect of the journey. We
pride ourselves as the largest single institute to have produced 1500 Nurses with international
bachelor’s degrees qualifications. We currently have 150 foreign students who have enrolled
for the course as well.”
“Right now, there are 10 million vacancies for healthcare workers in first world countries. This is
a clear indication of the demand and we must support this demand by creating the market to
export skilled labour, which falls in line with H.E President Gotabaya Rajapakse’s initiative to
form a knowledge-based economy,” stated Dr Kithsiri commenting further.
Special care and attention is given when formulating and scheduling courses for Government
nurses with the use of modern technology and teaching methods to ensure that their work
schedules are unhindered. This is primarily done to uplift the careers of the nursing staff, to
equip them with the necessary skill and knowledge to serve the common man efficiently and
Among the vast portfolio are the University of Aberdeen (United Kingdom), Coventry University
(United Kingdom), Open University of Malaysia (Malaysia), Deakin University, Australia, Helsinki
Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and Edith Cowan University (Australia) offering world
class quality education. Students are able to complete their first 3 years in Sri Lanka and move
to the relevant country for their final year at the respective university. This not only saves them
a lot of money but also helps them to be better prepared to face the global arena at the right
time with maturity and poise.
