International graduation event boost to Cardiff
THE University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (UWIC) will celebrate the success of its partnership with the London School of Commerce at a graduation ceremony held in City Hall today (Friday 22 February).
The unique collaboration between the two institutions allows international students to take world-renowned University of Wales degrees in London at the London School of Commerce.
The success of the partnership continues to grow with double the number of students from around the world attending the event than last year, which requires two ceremonies.
More than 1,100 people are expected on the day including VIPs, graduands and guests, who will bring a welcome boost to Cardiff’s businesses as they descend on restaurants, cafes and shops.
Over 50 countries are represented on the programmes and students travel from as far a-field as Tanzania, Thailand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Russia.
John Phillips, Dean of International Affairs at UWIC, said: “UWIC is very pleased with the partnership with the London School of Commerce. The ceremony highlights the successful conclusion to the studies of a very able and well motivated group of students who come from many different countries.”
Guests of honour at the event include Lord John Tomlinson of Walsall and Mark Field MP, Cities of London and Westminster who are both members of the LSC Advisory Board.
