Who should follow GDSE?
After A/L Students
University Expecting Students
Why follow GDSE after A/L's?
Can you master more than 10 Major
in your IT Related Degree before
entering into the university? Interested??
You worked so hard and finally, you have got a chance to enter into a
university to pursue your
Higher Education dream. Well, everything seems okay up to now, right?
But unfortunately, it is not a
smooth path like we heard countless times in the A/L classes from
tuition teachers. After entering
into the university for your IT related degree, you will have to follow
countless new modules that you
have never heard of. So, it will be quite hard to understand them at the
beginning, and to make
things even worse you are in a very competitive environment now where
everyone is willing to try to
get a good GPA. But don't worry we have your back.
So what is the solution?
Let us break it down for you. GDSE is a unique fast track training
program to boost and enhance the
knowledge of the “to be undergraduates” and present
Semester is built from scratch to ensure 100%
ensure that you can cover more than ten major modules in your degree
within the GDSE program
which helps you to get ahead and show colors in front of your other
colleagues. Apart from that,
there are many other benefits as well. Such as the ability to develop
projects while doing campus
projects and studies, ensuring the confidence needed for upcoming
internships, in which most of
them are not provided by the campus itself. After finishing the A/L’s,
it takes only 6 months to
complete the 1st Semester of GDSE, thus it will not be another baggage
to your campus life.

If you are Tired of the Conventional Higher
Education Path, but you still want to be a Software
worry we have your back.
Okay, we get it. You don't like the conventional Higher Education Path
in Sri Lanka. Well, that could
be due to many reasons. Maybe you are so tired of repeating A/L again
and again, maybe you lack
enough financial background to pursue your Higher Education or maybe you
just don't like the
traditional path to be a Software Engineer in Sri Lanka. If that sounds
familiar to you, don't worry you
are in the right place. Because IJSE has the experience of consulting
thousands of students like you.
Okay, enough talking. Let's get to the point, the truth is that the
traditional path to be a Software
Engineer in Sri Lanka, well it sucks.
So what is the solution?
Well, let us show you the Specialty of the Graduate
Diploma in Software
Engineering over other courses and diplomas. GDSE is a Fast
Training Program, which takes only 2 years to complete
top-up degree). From these two years, the first year is totally
dedicated to full-time study and the second year is full-time industry
placement with part-time studying. And most importantly, an
placement is a guaranteed process at IJSE, as we have a lot of software
companies requesting for software engineers, due to the higher standards
and recognition at IJSE. If you compare it with the traditional
higher education, such as degrees, they usually take around 4 to 5
valuable years to complete and leaves you with only limited industry
exposure. Comparative to that, GDSE is a more industry-based degree
program, which enables students to tackle real-world industry problems
without any issue. Because of this matter, after GDSE, students have
enough experience and confidence to face any interview without issues.
Is that all? What about the Degree?
No, you are right. Higher Education is a dream and a crucial period for
a student's life, where the
most memorable things in life happen. It is the main head start and the
core for a professional career
after your secondary education. IJSE offers a degree program especially
for students who have
completed GDSE, a UK Top-up Degree program from a
reputed university as
Study module in the 3rd year. Altogether, GDSE along with the
degree program takes 3
years, as an outcome for 3 years you have
Outcome = (SE Title) + (Salary Ranging from Rs.100,000 to
Rs.200,000) + (2 Year Plus Working Experience) + (UK Degree)
