Sinhalese Language

  • Sinhalese is the language spoken by a majority of Sri Lankan people. Even though the medical curriculum is taught entirely in English an international student will require a fair command of Sinhalese in order to communicate with patients from the third year onwards
  • Although most medical students are conversant in English the knowledge of Sinhalese will also help international students to bond better with the local graduates
  • When international students are admitted to the medical curriculum they undergo training in speaking Sinhalese.
  • These Sinhalese classes are conducted by the Medical faculty staff as well as staff from the Arts faculty
