Factors Affecting to Distract the University Students' Education in Sri Lanka
MetadataShow full item record
The Government of Sri Lanka enrols and provides free University education to approximately 20,000 students annually. Suitably qualified students are admitted to 15 Universities, 03 Campuses and various other higher Government affiliated education institutes. A majority of the students admitted are suppressed by certain internal, external and influential factors which alter the attitude and the behaviour of the students resulting an unhygienic environment to the university life and the public. To counter this issue, universities along with responsible ministries have launched many programs facilitating financial assistance and basic welfare measures to needy students. More than 50% of the students admitted yearly are benefited with these programs but to date the students unrest have not been mitigated nor a concrete solution have been established. The recently introduced Leadership Training Program conducted by Military Institutes enhance the personality of Students but is not sufficient or the best answer to the matter in question. This paper identifies the factors affecting to distract the university students' education in Sri Lanka as a National Issue and possible solutions to encounter the situation.
