BER­JAYA UCH chair­man of the Board of Gover­nors Datuk Robin Tan said to the stu­dents: “Today marks an im­por­tant mile­stone in your life and it is my hope that you have met the goals which you have set out to achieve, both aca­dem­i­cally and per­son­ally. I would like to thank the par­ents for their trust in us and seek to re­main en­gaged in your chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion. We take your trust se­ri­ously to equip your chil­dren with the knowl­edge and skills re­quired to meet the chal­lenges of the global en­vi­ron­ment.”

BER­JAYA UCH pro-chan­cel­lor Tan Sri Datuk Seri Vin­cent Tan com­mented: “When we es­tab­lished the Univer­sity Col­lege five years ago, we made a com­mit­ment to pro­vide our stu­dents with state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties that mir­ror real world set­tings and a highly con­ducive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“It is a known fact that a good ed­u­ca­tion is a prod­uct of ef­fec­tive learn­ing brought about by an up-to-date cur­ricu­lum, high stan­dards of in­struc­tion, rig­or­ous as­sess­ments and in­dus­try-driven in­tern­ships, all of which in­ter­re­late and re­in­force each other. This is all em­bod­ied in our unique teach­ing style, which we call the Ber­jaya Im­mer­sion Method­ol­ogy.

“Ber­jaya Cor­po­ra­tion has re­mained stead­fastly com­mit­ted in ad­vo­cat­ing eth­i­cal best prac­tices in man­age­ment while in­still­ing in our staff a strong sense of cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity which con­trib­utes to­wards the build­ing of sus­tain­able com­mu­ni­ties. As part of this thrust, we of­fer bur­saries and mer­it­based schol­ar­ships to stu­dents from Malaysia and from around the re­gion for them to study at our Univer­sity Col­lege. It is our hope that these stu­dents will, hav­ing achieved suc­cess in later years, re­cip­ro­cate by help­ing oth­ers who are less for­tu­nate.”

The class vale­dic­to­rian Deb­bie Teng ( pic), in her vale­dic­tory speech, hon­oured the role of par­ents in ed­u­ca­tion when she said, “Dear par­ents, we wear these robes and put on our mor­tar boards for you. This oc­ca­sion is yours, as much as it is ours. Today, we hon­our you and want to say, mum and dad, we love you. Fel­low grad­u­ates, please join me in salut­ing our par­ents by clap­ping to hon­our them.

“It is the time to take the knowl­edge we have gained in BER­JAYA UCH, and ap­ply it to the pur­suit of our fu­ture en­deav­ours. Whether you go on and con­tinue your ed­u­ca­tion, or start on your cho­sen pro­fes­sion, I wish you all hap­pi­ness and good for­tune.”

BER­JAYA UCH chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Mae Ho said: “We look for­ward to our stu­dents com­ing back should they de­cide to un­dergo post­grad­u­ate stud­ies. BER­JAYA UCH is a se­cond home for our stu­dents and our doors are al­ways open to them. We hope all grad­u­ates en­joyed their stud­ies here and I wish them all the best in their fu­ture en­deav­ours.”

Also present dur­ing the con­vo­ca­tion were mem­bers of the Board of Gover­nors, BER­JAYA UCH, mem­bers of the Diplo­matic Corps, aca­demic staff, in­dus­try part­ners, grad­u­at­ing stu­dents’ fam­i­lies and friends.
