£9,000 Tuition Fees

It seems that Oxford and Cambridge universities as well as London's Imperial College are expected to charge the maximum annual fee of £9,000. They fear setting lower fees may saddle them with a reputation for offering "cut-price" education. So the race to charge full fees has begun. I am sorry for English students – they should really consider studying at Sunway University! I can vouch for Sunway University’s academic standards – after all, I teach there! Besides, Sunway Univeristy is affiliated with UK’s Lancaster University. And Guardian University Guide 2011 ranks the latter at No. 6 (Webpage http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/table/2010/jun/04/university-league-table, posted June 08, 2010). The Independent’s Complete University Guide 2011 puts the English university at No. 8 (Webpage http://worldranking.blogspot.com/2010/05/independent-league-table-2011.html, accessed December 16, 2011). Need I say more?


Celtic took a significant step towards the Scottish Premier League title with a clinical 3-0 win over old rivals, Rangers. Gary Hooper delighted the home fans with the opening goal in 17 minutes, accelerating past David Weir and firing through keeper Allan McGregor's legs. Then Emilio Izaguirre's surging run and delicious cross set up Hooper to fire home from six yards on 28 minutes. And Hooper supplied the pass for Commons who switched the ball from his left to his right, evading Madjid Bougherra, and hit a swerving shot past the wrong-footed McGregor from 22 yards (70). This game was Celtic’s to win since Rangers rarely threatened.
