KDU Ranked 4th among the 10 most Prestigious Defence Academies

General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University (KDU) has been ranked as the 4th in a line of ten most prestigious defence academies in the world, and those ranked above it are the world-renowned Defence Academies, i.e. the United States Military Academy, PLA National Defense University, China and the Royal Air Force College, UK.

Incidentally, established in 1980, KDU is the second youngest in the list with PLA National Defence Academy, established in 1985, being the youngest. This recognition will definitely be a landmark in the journey of KDU, and the credit goes to the Vice Chancellor working with the moto, “Sky is the limit” and to the dedicated staff working tirelessly and steadfastly towards achieving goals.
