The University of Surrey is pleased to announce the appointment of BMS as their local partner in Sri Lanka. The appointment comes at a time when the University aims to be a leading national and international university. Surrey will achieve this by providing high quality scholarship attuned to the particular needs of society, leading-edge research, and a rich and varied learning environment in the UK, all of which will meet the needs of its students and other stakeholders.
The University has a long history of welcoming international students from all around the world. They currently have over 130 different nationalities represented giving students a truly international education. The beautiful safe campus is situated in Guildford which is just 40 minutes by train from London and close to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
The Director of BMS Mr Nizam Razzaq explained that "Surrey is very popular with Sri Lankans especially the Business and Engineering courses. Surrey is the only university to design and build satellites, and they also have some of Europe's leading expertise and facilities in communications, electronic devices and audiovisual media. Their Accounting and Financial Management degree programme enables advanced entry and, if students meet the requirements, they can enter the course in the second year - making studying in the UK cost effective."
The results of the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), an exercise conducted to grade the research quality of universities, have revealed that the University of Surrey continues to consolidate its strength as a world-class research-intensive institution. 88% of Surrey's research activity was rated either 'world class' or 'internationally recognised' with 4 areas of research activity in the top 10 and a total of 9 areas ranked in the top 20.
Professor Christopher Snowden, University of Surrey Vice-Chancellor, comments: "The RAE results are extremely important to higher education institutions. The excellence of research here at the University of Surrey compliments the high level of teaching and is great news for our students. It is a testament to our academic staff, whose talents and achievements are reflected in these results."
The University is pleased that the RAE has demonstrated that its work in the Allied Health Professions, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, General Engineering and Mineral and Mining Engineering and Sociology are ranked in the top 10 of universities working in these areas. It is also very pleased that Applied Mathematics, Economics and Econometrics, European Studies and subjects across the performing arts ranked in the top 20, which is a significant improvement on the 2001 results.
Professor Snowden continued: "Overall the university is delighted with what we've achieved and we have some outstanding results of which we can be proud."
