University of Ruhuna is going to take few measures to enhance the employability of graduates. The following measures will be implemented in near future.
1. Entrepreneurship study circles
2. Toast master speech craft lessons
3. Soft skill development programmes
4. Outbound clubs
5. Courses to enhance the professional qualifications
As the initial step, we would like to establish a “Entrepreneurship study circle” and a “Faculty speakers’ club” within our faculty. The Entrepreneurship study circle will help to all graduates of faculty of Allied Health Sciences. For example, if you dream of starting a pharmaceutical industry, pharmacy, and laboratory or even to market your skills such as wound care, health promotion activity etc., the entrepreneurship skills are indeed a need. Attaching this study circle would assist you to meet the experts, learn from them and have links with them. The Faculty speakers’ club will support you to enhance your language, presentation and even the leadership qualities with toast master consultants.
I invite all the willing students to join this study circle as founder members.
If you are willing, kindly inform your interest to me through following email; email@example.com. Or else, if you want to send the list of names of each batch, send it through your one of batch representative to this mail or through WhatsApp or Viber to 0775749621.

Hope things are well with you.
Day by day the situation is not healthy with respect to COVID 19 and we need to take all possible ways to prevent and counter the prevailing health risk. In this contest, National universities can play a vital role as that's the best place, which is with the knowledge, manpower, infrastructure and instruments, which are again brought down by the public funds. As state Universities, we have much more responsibility on our shoulders to safeguard our own community as well as to challenge the crisis situation worldwide.
I am writing this to inform you that Sri Lanka Inventors Commission (SLIC) has strengthened the system to support any invention, which is directly relate to Fight Against COVID 19.
This can be:
1. Just an idea
4. Finish product
Whichever the stage is, we/SLIC is going to support them in all possible ways to introduce this to the community, while ensuring the Intercultural Property of their product/concept.
We are there to support them on:
a. The patent documents
b. Finance them for testing (local/international)
c. Technical assistance
d. Provide financial assistance to buildup prototypes.
e. Provide grants/loans for start-ups
f. Support them to find out possible investors.
Hence, please be good enough to share this information among your staff (academic/nonacademic) and students (undergraduate/postgraduate) and support this effort against COVID 19.
Thank you in advance.
