Graduating students in the Far East
Students from the BSc (Hons) Multimedia and Entertainments Technology and Business Information Systems, which are operated in partnership with the Vocational Training Council (VTC) Hong Kong, in the School of Higher and Professional Education (SHAPE), received their degree awards, alongside the final cohorts of the BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance BA (Hons) Business and Management and BA (Hons) Marketing.
The degree awards and student prizes were presented by Professor Mohammad Dastbaz, Pro-Vice chancellor and Dean of Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology and Dr Simon Jones, Associate dean, Faculty of Business and Law. The prize winners this year were: Lok Chun Kit and Lo Chi Hang awarded for the most outstanding students on BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems and Tang Hung Kin and Pun Koon Wah, awarded for the most outstanding students on BSc (Hons) Multimedia & Entertainment Technology.
The event was hosted by Dr Lillian Wong, Principal of SHAPE who thanked the students for their outstanding successes and the staff for their hard work over the past year. Dr Wong reflected upon the inspiration for all attending through adversity and wished our graduates well in their future careers but to retain their ties with the University and the VTC. The VTC is a major provider of tertiary education in Hong Kong with over 250,000 students attending each year on a range of pre-employment and in service programmes with internationally recognised qualifications.
The graduation marks over thirteen years of successful collaboration between the two institutions in Hong Kong. Later the same week, both awards in Arts Environment and Technology were successfully reviewed revalidated with the review panel commenting upon the excellent learning facilities offered to the students at the Lee Wai Lee and Sha Tin campus locations.
