A special graduation ceremony in this autumn 06:32:18

Held while international travels were being restricted due to COVID-19, British University Vietnam (BUV)’s 2020 graduation ceremony became a special one as it was connected to many places in the world.

“The challenges posed by this pandemic have raised our awareness of the importance of creative thinking and flexibility to deal with any situations, which are the necessary skills and preparation for new graduates. You have to develop different approaches to learn and research, change the way you work and make use of digital communication and technology instead of conventional methods.”, Prof. Ieuan Ellis – Pro Vice-Chancellor, Place & Engagement, University of Staffordshire – shared during his remote speech.

In that moment at the BUV campus, over 100 fresh graduates walked on the graduation stage to receive their degree. They are the graduates of 2020 with their bachelor’s degrees awarded by University of London and University of Staffordshire, including majors namely International Business Administration, Marketing Management, Accounting & Finance, Tourism Management, Banking & Finance…

According to Prof. Raymond Gordon, Vice-Chancellor of BUV, a globally acknowledged British degree is not the only thing which makes BUV graduates stand out, it is also their fluent English proficiency, assured qualities and international orientation – these are the criteria and traits sought after by today’s employers.

Sir Graeme Davies, Chancellor of BUV, added: “The degree which you have just completed is recognised everywhere in the world. It is a passport to success for you to develop your career and to contribute to the Vietnamese economy and community.”

Apart from providing industry knowledge and expertise, BUV is also committed to creating a dynamic environment which enhances confidence as well as accumulates skills. All students are expected to participate in programmes which promote comprehensive personal growth, extracurricular activities, workshops about ideation, thinking and innovation training.

Choosing BUV with high confidence in British education programmes, 100% international faculty and state-of-the-art campus and facilities, Thuy Linh (Bachelor of Banking & Finance, awarded by University of London) not only started working for a big bank before graduating, but also witnessed outstanding personal growth. “From a shy, reserved high school girl, my 3 years of studying at BUV has brought out a better version of myself, more confident and willing to speak my mind.”, she recalled.

Sharing Thuy Linh’s views, Nguyen Thanh Quang (Bachelor of Accounting & Finance, awarded by University of Staffordshire) who recently won the position of Management Trainee at VPBank, said that the entire 3-year-long programme being taught in English had helped him build up confidence, language proficiency, as well as expertise and practical knowledge. In his interview with VPBank, when asked about a case study on breakeven analysis, Quang answered confidently with relevant knowledge acquired from school.

With goals beyond creating a learning environment of international standards and British educational qualities right here in Vietnam, BUV’s global study network, including top universities in the UK, also strengthens the strategic relationship between the two countries.

Holding high expectations for the new generation of graduates, Mr. Marcus Winsley, UK Deputy Ambassador in Vietnam, noted: “The UK and Vietnam are developing a strategic partnership stronger than ever. Together, the Vietnamese and British youth will exchange and share new ideas, making the world a better place.”
