Uva Wellassa gets more funds



Minister De Silva inspects the Uva Wellassa University. VC, Prof. Chandra Ambuldeniya is also in the picture.

The Uva Wellassa State University, rejected by the UNP regime will be further developed. The construction work is now in progress costing Rs. 20,000 million. After the UNP regime’s rejection to grant a state university to the Uva Province, President Mahinda Rajapaksa approved to build the Uva University and provided required funds, Healthcare and Nutrition Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva said.

Minister De Silva said the Opposition Leader had rejected the proposal to establish a state university in the Uva Province during his regime stating that Uva Province does not need a state university. But after President Mahinda Rajapaksa came into power he granted the approval to establish the university and provided funds. There are 400 undergraduates in this university now, he said.

There is a huge demand from the foreign students to obtain a degree from this university. All the courses had been designed according to the demand. There is a huge demand from both private and state sector for the graduates who pass out from the Uva Wellassa University.

All degree programs in the university has been formulated by making use of local resources to the maximum, he said.

During a recent discussion between Minister De Silva and the University authorities, it was decided to expand the building facilities and provide more academic and non-academic staff to this university to deliver a better service to a larger number of students including foreign students.
