The inauguration ceremony of the first ever British University to be built in Sri Lanka took place today at the British High Commission with the participation of the Minister for Higher Education S. B. Dissanayaka and British Foreign Secretary and First Secretary of State William Hague.

The memorial plaque regarding the University of Central Lancashire which is proposed to be built in the Meerigama region was also unveiled.

However, the Inter University Student Federation had organized protests in Kandy, Kurunegala, Anuradhapura, Galle and Rathnapura demanding the government put a stop to education trade zones.

The students who engaged in the protest in Kandy had to disperse after a short while due an order issued by the Kandy Magistrate’s Court which was obtained by the Kandy Police.

Speaking during the ceremony to unveil the memorial plaque regarding the University of Central Lancashire Minister of Higher Education S. B. Dissanayaka stated that an educated young generation is needed to face the challenges of the modern economy.
