Hasithi - MSc Finance

I thought that pursuing my masters during a global pandemic would be incredibly challenging, but thanks to an amazing panel of lecturers and a University that consistently supported its students, I was provided with a high-quality education.

Despite studying for her masters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Hasithi felt supported by the University.
