Royal Seal of approval for new world leading Sri Lanka education partnerView(s):
NSBM’s new education partner in Sri Lanka has been named as one of the world’s leading universities.
Plymouth University has been ranked as one of the top 10 modern universities in the UK and one of the top 60 modern universities in the world according to a leading global university league table, ‘The Times Higher Top 100 under 50’.
This further builds on Plymouth University’s other recent national accolade when it was this year awarded the prestigious Queen’s Higher Anniversary Prize for Higher Education, the most esteemed award that can be bestowed upon a British University.
The University was awarded the prize in recognition of the global impact of its marine and maritime education and research.
Plymouth University President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Wendy Purcell said: “Our distinctiveness, agility and focus on innovation, in terms of the real world student experience alongside world class research seeking solutions to the grand challenges of our future, means we are producing the leaders of tomorrow.
“We are expert, spirited and deeply connected to our communities and look forward to working in partnership with NSBM to bring our world class student experience to Sri Lanka.”
The university, which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year is also an award winning ‘Enterprise University’ and one of the top 40 research institutions in the UK.comments powered by Disqus
