Applying for internships
This section contains a non exhaustive list of suggestions for any Sri Lankan undergraduate applying for research internships.
- AIESEC global talent makes it easy for you to get Visa for any internship (as of 2019). Talk to the AIESEC branch in your university.
- IAESTE is similar to AIESEC but it is lesser known. Sri Lanka is listed in their website. While the Sri Lankan branch is situated in a particular institute, the branch is supposed to help any student. Contact the branch early and contact the global organization if they fail to help you.
Grad school application
- Generic advice on applying to grad school for CS from Mor Harchol-Balter. [PDF]
- CS graduate schools without an application fee. (List from Mahdi Cheraghchi).[list, description]
- IQ labs has conducted a series of youtube interviews in Sinhala with SL students pursuing graduate education around the world. The opinions/facts are anecdotal but totally worth listening into if you are a SL graduate hoping to apply to grad school.
- Do NOT take IELTS at IDP Sri Lanka before making sure if they can send results electronically to the list of universities that you want to apply.
(As of 2020, I have not heard British Council refusing to send results to a univeristy because it is not in their list. But IDP refused to send it to McGill, Canada).
