Higher education institutes to be supervised


The Ministry of Higher Education has taken action to monitor and supervise countrywide higher education institutions to control and eliminate the operation of `education shops' by various entrepreneurs.

Minister of Higher Education, S.B. Dissanayake said that this objective is to expand education opportunities to all students including a large section of students who fail to qualify for university entrance.

He said the Budget 2012, which will be presented this month, describes the current status of Sri Lankan university system and will propose a three-year development initiative for all State universities in the country.

"Additional funds have also been allocated to transform the universities of Peradeniya, Moratuwa, Colombo, Sri Jayawardanapura, Kelaniya and Ruhuna to a level of world class universities in their chosen field", he said.
