PM tells Royal Academy to up PhD standards

Prime Minister Hun Sen on Thursday instructed the Royal Academy of Cambodia to carefully scrutinise post-graduate candidates as he said the number of Cambodian PhD students was “too high”, with the Kingdom recording one of the highest ratios of PhD holders in the world.

Hun Sen was presiding over the inauguration of the new Indra Devi building and festivities commemorating the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Royal Academy of Cambodia.
