Welcome home recently returned Commonwealth Scholars from Sri Lanka!

This event will provide an opportunity to welcome home recently returned Commonwealth Scholars from Sri Lanka following their studies in the UK and introduce them to the local alumni network.

This is an opportunity for recently returned Scholars to make valuable connections with fellow Commonwealth Alumni who could provide guidance and support towards achieving professional and developmental goals. The event will also explore interest from recently returned Scholars and Commonwealth Alumni to re-active the local in-country alumni association for Commonwealth Alumni.

If you are a recently returned Commonwealth Scholar from Sri Lanka would like to attend this event, please contact Hamzi Haniff at
