The Battle of Wits begin!

Yesterday we were called by the Dean of Dentistry to attend a briefing. All students, from 1st years to postgraduates are compulsary to attend. It seems that anytime this month, University Malaya (UM) will be auditted by a number of panels. One of them is SIRIM and the other, a most sought after by us which enables us to accredit our own courses and all things academic. It was a big hoo-hah by the Dean of course.....pleading us not to jeopardise this chance as UM is dying to get an international recognition. He also said that the Malaysian government allocated a time frame for us to be in the top 200 universities and had only 2 years remaining to acheive it. And today when I was reading the news online....guess what??? Universiti Malaya is at No. 180 in Times Higher Education - QS World University Rankings 2009!!! He mus be damn happy now! XD

Still......we are no where near NUS......sigh......... :(

Below is the link from The Star, enjoy! :)
