Authorities have decided to follow a 120 credit points programme for the Allied Health Science degree after considering international education standards, criteria and scientific basis.

The Presidential Media Unit says that the decision was made during talks held at Temple Trees on Tuesday under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

A group including representatives of the Government Medical Officers’ Association, the University Grants Commission, the Ministry of Higher Education, the Ministry of Health, the Vice Chancellors of the Ruhunu and Peradeniya Universities and the Dean of the Allied Health Sciences Faculty of the University of Peradeniya, were present at the talks.

The Presidential Media Unit said representatives including the Dean of the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences at the University of Peradeniya had voiced their agreement to this decision.

Issuing a communique, the Presidential Media Unit said that owing to the existing court verdict with regard to the Allied Health Sciences Degree, a future course of action will be taken after submissions on the matters discussed at Tuesday’s talks are presented to the courts.

The Presidential Media Unit added that the President had instructed the Minister of Higher Education to inform all Allied Health Science Undergraduates of the matters that were discussed at these talks.
