Medical Graduate to a World Class Health Administrator

latrobe 2 192a7As a past student of IIHS who followed the “Postgraduate Diploma in Hospital Administration” programme, I was really grateful for the supportive staff who guided me through the process which enabled me to progress through to the “Masters of Health Administration” programme. IIHS gave me the opportunity and the skills to follow a health administration pathway which is unique in Sri Lanka. They supported me continuously the whole way, beginning with my university application and then right through the visa process. I highly recommend their services. Not only have they helped me achieve my dreams but they have done so in a very cost effective manner. The structure of this programme is very lucrative where you can follow the Postgraduate Diploma in Hospital Administration for a period of 1 year and then transfer your credits to La Trobe University Australia for the final year of the Master of Health Administration program. 
The atmosphere at La Trobe is really friendly. La Trobe is one of the most well equipped universities I have ever come across as they have a magnitude of facilities including a modern library, learning interfaces and a multitude of student clubs. In addition, all the lecturers and working staff are friendly, kind and helpful. The combination of quality teaching staff and up-to-date resources allowed me to further accelerate my learning and enjoy my studies. The system in Australia is mostly self-study with interactive discussions. I would highly suggest focusing on Academic writing skills and referencing in order to succeed in passing assignments.

Overall, living and studying in Australia has been an enriching experience, mostly due to the fact that Australia is highly multicultural and caters to many lifestyles. Along with a potential to earn while you study and live it big once you complete the degree, this country ensures hard work never goes unrewarded and I urge all students to take the advice IIHS has to offer in planning ahead.
I highly recommend IIHS and GHC Global Education as the institutions of choice if you wish to further your studies. They have done an excellent job in helping me secure a place at La Trobe University and even equipped me with exemptions which made my higher education financially viable. I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to the team at IIHS who made all this possible: Dr. Kithsiri, Mr. Amila and the rest of the staff– Thank you for the excellent job! Keep up the good work!
