He has always been there for the students as well as for the Lecturers guiding them every step of the way, moulding them and harnessing their knowledge,” she added.
Situated in an environmentally friendly place equipped with modern class rooms and high standard peripheral facilities for students to pursue their academic path in a very comfortable setting, Horizon Campus is a place where everyone greets you with a warm smile and makes you feel welcome always.

Hasini further acknowledged that as a lecturer she is indeed proud to witness graduates from Horizon Campus demonstrating the wisdom and finesse of a legal practitioner inside the courtroom, maneuvering and countering their opponents in front of the judges, equipped with the belief in the potency of the knowledge we as lecturers have given them.
