    What are these Australians smoking? Economy is still going south.

    The real reason is the contribution to the prosperity of Deakin by all politicians in Sri Lanka by making a total mess of local higher education.

    we can be very proud of our PM, has any past leaders of our country achieved this recognition?

    Dee Tuesday, 14 February 2017 01:01 PM

    If our worthless goons who protest on the street are called 'doctors' after they pass out, why not our PM? Miles apart. In every sense.

    Bala Tuesday, 14 February 2017 01:01 PM

    Add GMOA, IUSF and the Teachers Union to that list who are blocking good paid education in Sri Lanka itself.

    Pf Tuesday, 14 February 2017 01:03 PM

    This could be a possible trick to get more students from Sri Lanka to that University. via DM Android App

    The saying goes "a person can be judged by the persons he/she is associated with". A university can be judged by the persons it awards doctorates to. Dr. MS is not alone now, here is Dr RW to keep company.

    Ranjith Tuesday, 14 February 2017 02:09 PM

    DM - those who are sarcastic about RW should better know that he had his basic degree from a Sri Lankan Uni. Not the way the two Rajapaksa's got them. Jayaraj

    Shows your level - Dr.MS not from any university but some racket called Alternative Medicine.

    Mandy Tuesday, 14 February 2017 02:28 PM

    Yes : Deakin Uni No: 214 world ranked. Compare Uni Colombo:2171 -Pera:2248 - Moratuwa:2647.So better than any by SL Unis by ten times.
