UC has recently celebrated graduation events held with our partners TAFE Queensland and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU).
The UC-HKBU graduation event was held in Hong Kong on Saturday 24 March, and was attended by 57 graduates, as well as their friends and families. UC’s course delivery partnership with Hong Kong Baptist University, began in 2010 and this has enabled several University of Canberra courses to be taught in Hong Kong by the Faculty of Business, Government & Law. The latest cohort graduated with Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting), Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Commerce (Business Management) and Bachelor of Commerce awards.
Lawrence Tsang, Acting Dean, School of Continuing Education, HKBU gave the opening remarks and Professor Lawrence Pratchett, Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students, Partnerships and International) was in attendance to give the congratulatory speech.
