Two Students of the Faculty Participated the International Student Summit held in Japan 2016 and shared their experiences…..

“International Student Summit (ISS) held in Tokyo Nodai, Japan in 2016 was a remarkable global learning exposure I gained, thanks to the privilege of being an undergraduate of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Peradeniya. It unrevealed the treasured vistas to global, experiential learning.”
